classes to the library or sending in groups to use the library, teachers
need to sign up with the librarian well in advance. Teachers are
expected to remain with their students while in the library for a

library computers by whole classes or groups (even 1 or 2 students)
requires reservation/sign up with the librarian. Demand for these
resources is great.
When teachers send
students out of class to access library computers or resources, they
need to insure that students present a pass to a library staff member
for signature upon arrival and departure.
