• Highland Elementary School Library  2019-2020     Preschool Welcome Letter    HES Welcome Letter

    Welcome to the Highland Elementary School Library!

    At Highland Elementary, we have a wonderful collection of books just waiting to be read!  Our program of services is structured to help students learn to love books and reading, handle books properly, and return them on time.  Classes visit the library as a group once a week and individual students are invited to visit the library anytime.

    Students who enjoy reading are more successful in other subjects in school, and in all areas of life as they grow and mature. Students learn to be responsible through participating in the process of selecting, borrowing, caring for and returning library books on time.

    Our circulation policy is:

    • Preschool is allowed to check out one (1) book at a time for a period of 1 week.
    • Kindergarten is allowed to check out one (1) book at a time.
    • First grade is allowed to check out two (2) books at a time.
    • Second grade is allowed to check out three (3) books at a time.
    • Third, fourth, & fifth grade are allowed to check out five (5) books at a time.
    • Any student (K-5) who has an overdue/lost book, cannot borrow any more books until the overdue one is returned and/or replacement costs paid.

    Please sign and return the form to enable your student to begin using our school library.  For complete library policies, please see the school’s Student Handbook on the website: https://www.highland.k12.va.us/domain/177

    Thanks for your help and support in teaching our students the love of reading and being responsible citizens.  Please call the school at 540-468-6360 if you have any questions or concerns.
