  •      We are excited to announce that the process for paying library and technology fees and fines is being streamlined, making payment easier than ever.

         On Wednesday, May 25, 2022, you may receive an email if your child has any outstanding library and/or technology fines for the 2021-22 school year. Following the instructions in the email, you will be able to pay quickly and easily through your My School Bucks account. Parents will receive individual emails for each of their children with outstanding balances, so be sure to open all the messages you receive from MySchoolBucks and complete payment for each.

         We hope that assessing fees through MySchoolBucks will improve your experience with paying fees and fines. Please reach out directly to your school with any questions.
