Fines and Lost Books
A fine of ten cents a school day is charged for an overdue book. Two days "grace" is given before the fine is charged. No fine is charged on the days that the students are not in school--holidays, teacher in-service and weekends.
A fee is charged for books that are damaged while they are checked out to the student. The fees vary according to the amount of damage. If the book is damaged so severly that it can not be returned to the shelves, the book will have to be replaced.
In the case that a lost book has been paid for and later found, the replacement fee minus the late charge will be returned to the student. Refunds will only be given if the book is found before September of the following year.
