WELCOME The Faiss Middle Library and computer lab is located in room 900, in the center of the student academic area, and circulates more than 25,000 print and electronic resources. Students may visit the library before, during and after school from 8:30am to 3:45pm daily except Thursdays (4:30pm). Late bus passes will only be give on Thursday afternoons. Should the library need to close during one of these times, all possible efforts will be made to let students know in advance.
CHECKOUT Students may check out up to five books for a period of 3 weeks from the Faiss Library. Responsible students with no fines or overdue materials may check out more books at the discretion of the library staff. If a student needs a book for longer than the allotted three weeks, they may renew it once. Students who have an overdue book or fine from Faiss Library or any other school in the Clark County School District may only check out one book until the overdue item is returned.
POLICIES Throughout the year, Faiss Middle School will host various special events including year books parties, dances, and other socials. Please be advised that overdue materials/fines need to be taken care of prior to these events in order for students to attend. Overdue notices will be given to students through their English classes every other week. Overdue notices will be sent through parent link with paper copies being sent home to parents per quarter. Students are not allowed to check out books for other students.
Students withdrawing from Faiss Middle School should return all library materials prior to their last day. In the event of a transfer, fines/overdue materials will follow students to their new schools. Fines/overdue materials not returned prior to the student’s senior year can prevent them from walking in their graduation ceremony. Please feel free to turn in overdue materials or pay fines from other schools to Mrs. Morris, the Faiss MS librarian. Funds or books will then be sent to the appropriate school. Once the student account has been updated from the previous school, students will be allowed full check out from Faiss MS.
