There are periods throughout the week called School Services which allow students to come to the Media Center with teacher permission to conduct planned research. Students must have a planned purpose for visits to the Media Center. For scheduled class visits each classroom is assigned a period a week which the whole class visits the Media Center, at this time students may check out/in books.
