The Parent Home Page Information

We now offer PaySchools Central as a resource for the parents of students in our district. PaySchools Central is a secure payment system which simplifes school payments in an easy-to-use online portal. It enables parents to fund lunch accounts and pay required and optional fees online quickly and easily. PaySchools Central also allows parents to opt into and manage email reminders about their student’s accounts, so it’s easy to remember to replenish lunch accounts or pay for that upcoming  field trip.

Why PaySchools Central?

Payments can be made by credit card 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the parents’ convenience – online or via the mobile app.

Parents can review student purchases, along with account balance information. 

PaySchools Central supports increased communication between our school and our families. 

Online payments are fast, easy to manage (even for multiple students), and more convenient than writing multiple checks.

At lunch time, our cashiers will spend less time taking cash at the serving lines, so students have more time to eat. 

No more lost lunch money, cash or checks on the journey from home to school!
