Winterim Fee Payment Deadline: Wednesday, November 15

NEW Fee Policy Updates
NEW! Beginning December 1, a $25 late fee will be assessed every month for outstanding balances.
NEW! Beginning with winter sports, students will be allowed to participate in a sport ONLY IF all their prior sports fees have been paid in full.
NEW! Beginning with winter sports, there will be a non-refundable $50 deposit for sports that is due before your student is considered a team member and receives a uniform. The remainder of the sports fee will be due mid-season. If the sports fee is not paid in full by this deadline, your student will be unable to participate.
