Shipping Address:

To protect the integrity of our material, we prefer to ship all orders to a school address. However, during the summer months and holidays, orders may be shipped to an individual's home address upon verification of employment credentials; please include a school name, school email address, school phone and contact person with your order information so that we may complete the verification process. The verification process may delay shipping for 1-2 business days. Please call our office for further details.
