Book Return Policy

We would like to politely point out that the bookstore can only accept returns of unused books and material under the following special circumstances:

-          If the class, you purchased the book for, is not going to take place.

-          If your child does not attend the German School Washington despite you placing the book order and purchasing the books.

In all other cases we can only take your books into commission and sell them as used books.

Thank you very much for your understanding.
