Thanks for your response, Paula.  We have done this.  However, students are still able to browse the store, where they are finding inappropriate magazines.  :(

Hi Paula,

I am glad that somebody got a postcard from me....I did not single you out, it was part of a bulk mailing based on schools within a state.

I have plenty of references and a lot of free advice.
