Textbook Purchasing FAQ
We would like to thank you for your patience with the new online bookstore. Below please find some frequently asked questions regarding the bookstore to help guide you through the process.

Classes Missing from the Online Bookstore List
If a class is not listed on the online bookstore, either the class does not require a textbook or we are actively working to resolve the matter with Follett. Many of our elective courses do not require the purchase of a textbook. Classes such as math and science do have a digital textbook and we are working to correct this as quickly as possible.

No Digital Book is Offered
All of our classes utilize digital books. If a class in the online bookstore offers a physical textbook, please do not purchase the book. We are updating the books available to only include digital book offerings.

Textbook Purchasing Deadline
As we are adjusting to the new online bookstore process and program, we will ensure that the bookstore remains open until everything has been resolved and all families have been given a reasonable amount of time to purchase textbooks.

We would like to assure you that this will not disrupt the learning process for students. Teachers have been informed of the situation and asked to prepare lesson plans that account for all of the variable we are addressing.
