Fees/Fines

The $20 Student Body fee entails the following: $12.50 to the student’s specific grade level; $7.50 to Student Activities. This fee benefits all students. This money is also used to provide prizes for PAWS, Plant A Smile, and Work Hard Play Hard.

All money needs to be paid in the office where a receipt will be given. Please do not make checks out to teachers for any reason. Teachers cannot accept cash or checks. Separate checks are needed for lunch and fees/fines.

End of Year Check Out

At the end of the end of the year all students will be required to check out of school to ensure that they have:

  1. Turned in all books and equipment.
  2. Paid any fines or class fees.
  3. Cleaned their locker.

This check out process will need to be completed prior to the last day of school. Students who have not taken care of fees/fines will be notified via notices attached to 3-week and 6-week progress reports, and report cards. Students who owe fees/fines may not participate in end of the year activities and yearbooks will be held until all fees/fines are paid in full. Fees/fines not paid by the last day of school will be carried over and added to the next school year’s registration fees. Students going to the High School will not receive credit until fines/fees are paid.
