    • Overdues 
      Minneola does not charge daily fines, but we do hold students accountable for materials that they check out.  If a book is lost or seriously damaged, students are asked to pay the original purchase price of that material.  Overdue notices are sent home with the students when necessary.

    • Students are expected to follow the Mustang Star Rules (Safe, Trustworthy, Accountable, Respectful, Successful)
    • Use walking feet
    • Use inside voices

    • Use Shelf markers to help put books back where they belong (3rd -5th graders)
    (Students in grades 3-5 are also asked to sign a copy of the Student Agreement written below at the beginning of the school year)
    Student Agreement
    I have been instructed in careful and respectful handling of books.  I understand it is a privilege to use the library and the materials in it.  I agree to enjoy and return all library books that I borrow on time and in good condition.  I know that if I lose or damage a library book, I am responsible for paying the original cost of that book.  I also understand, if there is an overdue/lost book from last year, I will not be allowed to check out until the book(s) have been returned or paid for.
