Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to make a payment?

You will need to know your child’s student ID number and the amount of the fees you wish to pay.

What happens if I don’t pay my Fees?

You have until April 17th, 2023 to pay fees for the 2022-2023 school year.  Fees not paid by that date will be turned over to collections.

What is my child’s student ID number?

Your child’s student ID number is a six-digit number. In many cases your child will know this number, however, it may also appear on statements from the cafeteria or library, report cards, progress reports, or transcripts.  You may also log into Skyward to get your student ID.

How do I know how much to pay?

An itemized list of book rentals, consumables, and other fees is sent home with students near the beginning of the year. We ask that you pay the total amount listed on the sheet. Reminder notices will be sent home periodically for students with outstanding fees.

Why is there a convenience fee?

Do I have to pay online?

If I have multiple children attending one school can I pay for all of their fees with a single transaction?

No. Transactions are tracked and funds are applied to your child’s balance by using their student ID number. Since Certified Payments only allows you to enter one student ID number per transaction you must pay for each child’s fees in a separate transaction.
