Dear Families,

We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with Follett, our official bookstore partner, to bring Mother McAuley students a new digital program called the Virtual Backpack for this year.

The site in which to purchase the books (mothermcauley.bkstr.com) will go live for ordering on July 18. We ask that students choose the digital version of a text when given an option. For all digital orders placed by August 12, students will receive an email with  the  access user name and password to the Virtual Backpack. Inside will be the codes for each digital item. Any digital orders placed after August 12 will take 5 to 7 working days to fulfill, at which time the email for access to the Virtual Backpack will be sent. All print text orders will ship immediately.

Follett works closely with our faculty to identify and source our school-approved textbooks from the correct publishers, and in the exact editions that our teachers will use during the school year. So you can purchase from Follett with the confidence that comes from knowing that your students will have the right course materials to ensure success.

Regarding Print Books:

Any orders placed between July 18 and 24 will receive free ground shipping.  Also, from July 18 until July 21, all used and rental books are 10% off. You do need to enter the code "Text10"  into the promo code box and then hit enter.

Lastly, every order placed through your official Follett Virtual Campus website supports Mother McAuley and our students.

For any questions or concerns, please contact our Instructional Technology Specialist, Lauren Dowden via email at LDowden@mothermauley.org, or starting August 1, by phone at 773-881- 6577.
