Please take a moment to review our Textbook Policy:
TEXTBOOK DEPOSITORY/TEXTBOOK AGREEMENT
1st and 2nd semester
Textbooks are issued to all students at schedule pick-up. Students MUST have a Southfield-Lathrup identification card,schedule and textbook agreement in order to receive textbooks. The Textbook Depository will be open from 7:00am - 11:00am and during lunch hours.
Your student must return his/her first semester textbooks or pay for them, before they can receive textbooks for second semester.
In order to be sure a student has the correct textbook(s) students/parents may request a list of their textbooks at any time. You should note the bar-code number inside the front cover of the textbook to make sure it matches the bar-code number on the list. Students/parents are financially responsible for returning the same textbook to the Book Depository when finished using it.
Textbooks should be returned to the Depository - not to teachers. If a book is lost, paid for, and is found within a thirty (30) day period, a full refund will be issued. Payment for any lost or damaged book has to be by cash, certified check or money order only. Personal checks will not be accepted. Seniors must return or pay for books prior to graduation or the student will not be allowed to pick up their cap and gown and their diploma will be held.
STUDENTS/PARENTS WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT OF DAMAGE TO TEXTBOOKS WHILE ISSUED TO THEM. THERE ARE NO WAIVERS FOR BOOK FINES.
Students/parents are fully responsible for making sure textbooks are returned in the condition received. Students/parents have 3 days upon receipt of textbooks to contact Mr. Johnson in regards to concerns of the condition of any textbook. Damaged books cost anywhere between $55 and $90 per book.
Semester and year long books must be returned to the book depository the last day of exams. Failure to do so will result in a $5.00 lost fee per book assessed to the student's account.
A TEXTBOOK DEPOSITORY/TEXTBOOK AGREEMENT must be signed by the parent and student to receive textbooks. Signatures indicate that you have read and understand the textbook depository agreement for 1st and 2nd semester textbooks.
