CHILD CARE PAYMENTS

Monthly invoices are distributed to the Child Care Centers and placed in theParent's binder. All communications from Child Care are placed in the clear pocket designated for your student in the Parent's binder.

It is the parents’ responsibility to pick up the invoice and make a timely payment. If someone else is picking up your child, you will need to make arrangements to pick up your invoice on the first school day of the month. In order to avoid a $25.00 late fee, you will need to have your payment made by the due date on the invoice.

Pagos al programa del cuidado de niños

Las facturas mensuales se distribuyen en los Centros de Cuidado Infantil y se colocan en el cuaderno de entrada/salida. Todas las comunicaciones del Programa, se colocan en la hoja/bolsillo transparente designada para cada estudiante. Es responsabilidad de los padres recoger su factura y hacer un pago puntual. Si alguien más recoge su hijo, tendrá que hacer arreglos para recoger su factura el primer día escolar del mes. Para evitar un recargo por retraso de pago de $ 25, deberá hacer su pago antes de la fecha de vencimiento en la factura.
