Schaumburg School District 54 Reminders
You can pay your students fees through your parent portal account. This includes your $50 consumable fee, optional instructional device insurance (grades 3-8 only), and milk.
If you believe your student will qualify for the Free Lunch Program and therefore will qualify for a fee waiver, do not pay the consumable material fee at this time. Applications for the Free Lunch Program are available online and in the school office.
The consumable fee will increase by $15 if payment is not received by November 15, $25 if not received by February 1, and $35 if not received by April 1.
If you would like to purchase instructional device insurance but do not have the option to do so through your portal, please contact our school office for assistance. Instructional device insurance must be purchased before the date of device issuance.
