    Students may have 8 items checked out at any given time. Students are responsible for returning books on or before the due date. If the items are needed longer, the student should bring the item in and ask to have it renewed.

    Overdue notices will be sent home periodically throughout the school year. Students who do not return materials after receiving an overdue notice may be denied borrowing privileges. Students who have overdue materials from schools they have previously attended in UCPS are still responsible for resolving their accounts with those schools. If they return the book or payment to Parkwood High the media staff will mail the book or payment to the appropriate school. Materials are due back to the media center approximately 2 weeks before the end of the school year. The date exact is published on the school calendar each year.
