Textbook Policies

  • Checking Books Out

    Students will need to use their Hillsdale High School student ID to check out books. 
    It is always a good idea for students to write their names in the space provided in the front of textbooks and novel checked out from the school.

    Student Responsibility
    Students are responsible for the care of the books checked out to them. 
    Students are to protect their textbooks from damage. You are not to write, underline, and/or highlight your textbooks. You are not to fold the pages of your textbook and novels.
    In the event that books sustain damage, students will be charged to repair or replace the book (depending on the amount of damage).

    Checking Books In
    Students should take care to check in the books that have been checked out in their name.  It is common for students to accidentally switch books with another student and turn in the other student's book at the end of the year.  Please remember that students are responsible for the books that are checked out to them - returning 'any book' is not the same as returning the book that you checked out!

    Complications
    Seniors must return all books and pay all fines before they may participate in the following:

    • Senior Week Activities
    • Graduation Ceremony

    The school reserves the right to withhold transcripts until all books are returned and all fines have been paid.  This includes sending transcripts to schools that students transfer to or to universities after students have completed their graduation requirements.
