Home School, Virtual School, and Online Learners

In order to use the LeRoy Collins Leon County Public Library System unattended during school hours, those children who are the ages of 10 to 17 and who are enrolled in either home-school, the Florida Virtual School or other online schools will be required to have on their person a completed and duly executed Parental Permission Form from their parent/guardian. (a photo of same on a cellular device will be accepted) The parent/guardian may be called by staff to confirm the home school status. The school district may also be contacted to confirm home school status. If the child has a Virtual School, or other online school ID, they may log into their account as proof of home school status.

Parents are still responsible for the actions and well-being of their child(ren). In accordance with LeRoy Collins Leon County Public Library System’s Policies. Customers, including children, using inappropriate behavior may be asked to leave the library. If a child 10 and older is not able to leave the library on his/her own then he/she should not be in the library without a parent/caregiver.
