Fee Management:
Parents can pre-pay online for Middle or High School student fees during the Mandatory Annual Student Information Update process.  Activity Fees are capped at $100 per student for Middle School students and $150 per student for High School students.  If you do not pre-pay for your activities now, you will be charged and notified by email of any unpaid balance, which includes money owed from prior years.  
Students may not be permitted to participate in a Fall activity unless the fee is paid in full during Mandatory Annual Student Information Update process.
The Chromebook Annual Insurance Plan Fee of $30 is expected to be paid for all students in Grades 6-12 during Mandatory Annual Online Re-registration. A Chromebook will not be issued to any Grade 6-12 student until the fee is paid. See the RPS Chromebook Initiative for more information.
