LIBRARY BOOKS DUE/FINES
From the Huron Media Center: Many of the Huron parents received an email notice last Friday showing your student's overdue library books and/or fines. Many of the students have already returned the books or paid a fine. Thanks for your support! We also wanted to let you know that you may also receive a "paper" notice of overdue obligations in the report card mailing, EVEN IF YOUR CHILD HAS RETURNED THE ITEM.
This is because we had to print the overdue notices a couple days ago in order to have them included in the report card mailing. So, if your child tells you that they have already taken care of this obligation, it is probably accurate. If you have any questions, you
can call and check with the media center staff. Thanks!
