In an effort to be more efficient in starting our school year and in response to the requests of many parents over recent years, we will be instituting a new fees collection policy at Northwest High School to start the 2016-17 school year. Many parents have requested that when they make a start of the year fee payment that as much of it as possible may be done with one check or payment.
We are strongly encouraging parents to make fee payments before school begins on August 11. Chromebooks for grades 10, 11, and 12 will be available for pickup with Mr. Gibson after the Chromebook fee and Agreement form collected.
You will note on the attachments included in this email that payments may also be made for activities fees, junior class dues and senior class dues. Each student must have a separate form if more than one student is in a household. Forms will also be available in the Central Office.
The process for early fee payment will consist of:
1) The students or parents bringing in the fee payment with their completed Northwest Fees form and the Chromebook Agreement form to the Central Office.
2) Students obtaining a receipt from the Central Office.
3) Students taking the receipt to Mr. Gibson in the Library to pick up their Chromebook.
Students in grade 9 and all new students will not be a part of the early fee payment program because they must attend the Chromebook Bootcamp on August 9 or 10. Chromebook fee payments will be collected at that time with the Chromebook Agreement form. The only exception to this would be if a household has more than one student attending Northwest High School and one of those students is in grade 9. Payment may be made for the students, but the Chromebook will not be issued to the grade 9 student until the Chromebook Bootcamp has been attended.
If you are applying for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program waiver, please wait to pay fees until after your application is returned. Your fee, if paid, will not be returned.
The Central Office and Mr. Gibson will be available ONLY:
Thurs. July 28– 8:00AM-11:00AM and 1:00PM-4:00PM
Mon. Aug.1, Tues. Aug.2, Wed. Aug.3—8:00AM-11:00AM & 1:00PM-4:00PM
