HOW TO COVER YOUR TEXTBOOKS

HAVE YOU LOST A TEXTBOOK?

Please be advised that students are financially responsible for all textbooks and library books checked out from the library.  This means that students must pay for all books that are lost or stolen.  Students who decide to keep textbooks in their classrooms do so at their own risk. Many times a student gets a textbook mixed up with another classmate and when this happens, the student is still responsible for the book checked out and listed on his/her record.  

NOTE:  Students must resolve any issues with lost or stolen textbooks & library books before they will be allowed to check out any new books.
 

What can you do if you have lost or had a textbook stolen? 
Stop by the library and speak with library staff for details about the following options:
 

1) Pay for the full cost for a replacement textbook.  We only accept CASH or CHECK payments.

2) Start a payment plan to pay for your replacement textbook.  You will need to pay for a percentage of the replacement cost of the book divided by the number of school terms left in the school year.  We only accept CASH or CHECK payments.

 

Or the following option is only available for TEXTBOOKS:

3) See Mrs. Somers for details on replacing TEXTBOOKS ONLY online.  You must first speak to Mrs. Somers BEFORE you decide to use this option for TEXTBOOKS ONLY as you MUST follow specific EGUSD guidelines.

NOTE: If you choose to purchase a replacement textbook you will NOT receive any refund if your lost textbook is found.
