To order laminating teachers need to complete an order form (available in their school). Include an account number for billing. Items for laminating need to be:
- Sorted by size
- No staples, masking tape, or sticky tac attached,
- Dropped off in a plastic garbage bag or other suitable container,
- Be clearly labeled with the request form attached
Please drop off materials for laminating by Tuesday.
Teachers are asked to please return items by the due date. This is particularly important for rural and south end schools on the delivery schedule as there may be another teacher expecting that item.
If you need to keep items please contact the Resource Centre, at least one day before your delivery / pickup and we will let you know if it can be renewed or needs to be returned.
