There will be an updated fine list in the entry of the library, so even if you are not sure, please come by and check to be sure you are cleared. An “all-call” will also be going out next week to alert parents that seniors who still have fines will not be able to purchase prom tickets, pick up a cap and gown, or pick up a diploma after the graduation ceremony. Bottom line seniors – don’t wait, take care of business!
