We will be closed during faculty/staff meetings, immediately after school on district/teacher In-service days, and for district meetings. Due to the fact that there will be some “special” days, please check the Main Library doors for the closing times.
Students can come to the library before school, during lunch, and after school without a pass. During class, students must have the official hall pass. If more than one student is coming to the library from a teacher's class, the teacher needs to send the students with the official hall pass and a list of the student's names.

Technology Use Agreement Form:
The Tempe Union High School District requires that all students and a parent/guardian sign a district technology use Agreement Form before using school computers. The technology use Agreement Form can be found in the T.U.H.S.D. Student Policies and Regulations handbook. Students who violate the technology use policy will lose computer privileges.
The purpose of school computers and equipment is for educational use only. Student use of computers and equipment is a privilege, not a right. Any other use of school computers will result in loss of computer use privileges for an entire school year. A second offense will result in loss of computer use privileges for the remainder of a student’s high school years.
