[aisle] Elementary Check Out

1. We are 100% remote. We are turning our Destiny Classic system into
Destiny Discover for ease of use for our 1-4 community. Students will be
able to place a hold on as many as 5 books, which we (the Media Specialist
and I) will pull and put in plastic bags with the students' names on them.
Student families will be able to come by school and pick up their bags from
the front of the school. The system will be touchless.
We haven't yet implemented the plan, so we'll see how it goes! The plan is
that holds must be in by the end of day Tuesday for Thursday pickup. Pickup
is only available on Thursdays 8:00 am - 4:00 pm. There will also be a bin
for returns, which will be quarantined for 1 week before they are scanned
in and recirculated.
