FACTS TUITION MANAGEMENT
All families have been enrolled in the FACTS Tuition Management system. Tuition invoices will be sent to you through FACTS. This allows you to pay online by credit card or directly from your bank. You may also come into the office to pay. Many of our students receive the Step-Up for Students Scholarship. This is just a reminder that the Step- Up scholarship does not pay the full tuition and parents are responsible for the balance. You should be receiving emails from FACTS showing you have a balance. Do not ignore the email or the date payment is due, you will be charged a late fee.
RENWEB FAMILY PORTAL ACCESS
All families need to create an account in RenWeb to be able to access the parent portal. By being able to access this portal you will have access to your child’s assignments, grades, and stay in communication with their teacher. I am attaching the directions on how to create an account. Please be sure to use the email that you used when you registered.
After care begins 15 minutes after school dismissal until 6:00 p.m. Any child not picked up by 3:15 p.m. will be placed in aftercare and parents are responsible to pay the fee. For the 2021-2022 school year, parents who know that they will use the aftercare program are encouraged to enroll their child by filling out the aftercare form and pay the registration fee.
