As you know, there are 180 days of school attendance each year, and each month has a different number of school days.  For your convenience, and to simplify the payment process, we have divided the Extended Day fees into 10 equal payments.  If you divide the 180 days of the School Year by 10 payments, each payment is for 18 days of service.  Under the revised payment schedule (altered to help our families after Hurricane Irma), all payments are due by the 1st of the month prior.  We have additionally created our Schedule of Fees Document to help you better understand our fee schedule.  Although we do allow payments by check, cash, credit card, etc., our preferred payment method is online payments using a debit card.  We provide you with safe, secure online payment capability with My Procare. You will need to registered in the program prior to your first online transaction.

State law prohibits attendance if tuition has not been paid. Please help us remain in compliance by making your tuition payments by the due date. A late fee of $25 will be assessed 5 days after the due date, and your child will be disenrolled if payments are not made before the start of the next month.

We offer reduced rates to families who qualify for free or reduced lunch. When your family applies for either the free or reduced lunch program, you should receive a letter from the county which identifies the program your family is qualified to use. A copy of this letter must be presented to the Extended Day Program Administrator to be eligible for these discounted rates. Upon presentation of the letter, we will provide the rates which you are to pay. Fees for students who qualify for free lunch will be 50% of the regular fee.  Families of students who qualify for reduced lunch will pay 75% of the regular fee. Reduced rates do not apply to Wednesday Only services.
