  • Lost/Damaged Books

    Lost book or damaged books will incur a fine.

    Paperback or softcover books are $5

    Hardback books are $15

    Fines may be paid in cash, check made out to Walnut Grove ES, or online through mypaymentplus. 

    Lost books that are found and returned in good condition will result in a refund. Please allow up to 2 weeks to process a refund.

  • Media Center Notices

    In an effort to save paper and reach parents, the Media Center has chosen to email over due notices every week. Please note that your child will only be charged for a book if it is lost or damaged beyond repair. Because the email goes out electronically the same time every week, your child might not have had their library time and their books would then be overdue.

    It is not necessary to email Mrs. Bross (Amy.Bross@gcpsk12.org)unless there is an additional concern.

    So far, this has been a successful process. However, we do not have many emails that are correct or on file. Please notify the school of your current email in order to receive these messages. Thank you!
