Behavior expectations: Our library is the hub of our school; the energy and activities are numerous. Everyone is expected to remain relativity quiet and respect the overall environment of the library. The library is a classroom and needs to be treated as such. Students who are visiting the library during school hours and who are not accompanying by their classes need to have a pass, sign-in and work independently.
