All books supplied by Fordham Prep have a number on the lower edge in red (e.g. 18-001). Students receive these books from their individual teachers, who record each student's book number. These books must be returned at the end of the school year in the Commons on exam days, not to individual teachers. Students who receive books directly from their Westchester districts must return those books directly to the district at the end of the school year.
