How do I pay for fines?
We do not assess fines for items merely overdue. Fines are assessed for missing or damaged items only.

Fines may be paid online at the
 Blue Devil Online Store. Select "Library" under "Product Categories", click on the lost & damaged books image and enter the amount of the fine(s), the student's name and the student's ID number. The fine amount field is labeled "Donation Amount." Yes, we know it's not a "donation," but we are unable to change the label of the field.

Fines may also be paid by check. Please include the student ID number in the memo line, and make the check payable to Davis Senior High School. Mail the check to:
