Attention students who use the library as an after school study space…

– Each morning when we arrive at the library the teachers, staff, and other volunteers come in to help set-up and prepare rooms for testing and use for the school day.  When we arrive, we find gum stuck in the seats of chairs, armrests torn off of chairs, cables unplugged from computers, keys broken off of keyboards, and equipment missing.  This takes twice as much time to fix for everyone who is trying to help.  The equipment in our library will be needed long after our library building is torn down for the construction of our new school building.  Please be responsible…Do not destroy school property, take cables and equipment out of computers, or remove items from our equipment.  We need to take care of our school and all of the equipment within it so that we can all benefit from its use.  Thank you!
