  1.  Textbook Fees Reminder:  If you have not had the opportunity to pay your child’s book rental, please plan to do so at your earliest convenience.  Cash, checks, or money orders for book rental payments may be submitted to the office.  Credit card payments may also be made through EZSchoolPay.  Please remember that there is a 4.1% processing fee when using this service.

Book rental fees were loaded into PowerSchool last week.  Received payments will be posted in PowerSchool over the course of the next week.  Should you have questions regarding payment status, please feel free to contact Mrs. Yeager at or at (317)326-3121.
