Ridgeway Elementary
North Vancouver School District
Policies and Procedures


We are limiting the number of books the children can take out to five this year.  Generally, no more than 5 will be checked out to each student at one time but if there is a specific need then we can always have a discussion and I'm generally quite flexible.  Upon check-out, students are usually asked how many books they feel they need for that week.  If a student has not returned their books over a period of time, they may be asked to return some or all of their books before borrowing more.

Borrowing Period

The books are set for a 2 week borrowing cycle, but the students may renew a book for an additional 2 weeks if that was not enough time for them.

Lost or Damaged Books

Students are asked to take responsibility for their books.

If you are able, we kindly ask for a donation or replacement if a book is badly damaged or lost.
