WELCOME TO THE ABERDEEN CATHOLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM, INC.
Step 1: NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION: Complete, sign, and submit Registration form Grades K-12 and the Transfer of Records Request if you are new and have not registered your children. A Registration Form is required for each child. If your children are registered, skip this step and proceed to Step Two.
Step 2: TUITION CONTRACT: Complete, sign and return the Tuition Contract before August 1, 2016, (or print and bring with you on July 19th for Tuition Signing Days). If you are paying by check, the first tuition payment is due August 1, 2016. Please send your payment by that date to Aberdeen Catholic Schools, Attn: Vickie Haiar, 1400 N. Dakota Street, Aberdeen, SD 57401. If you are paying by automatic deduction (10 month or 12 month only) the first automatic deduction will be on August 10, 2016.
The tuition contracts are fillable forms and will calculate the tuition as amounts are entered. Just open the forms, fill in the required areas, print, date, sign and return.
*We will have tuition contracts for the 2017-2018 year available this summer, please check back then.
Step 3: If you are paying by automatic deduction, please complete, sign, and return the Tuition Direct Payment Authorization by August 1, 2016. Due to an update from our bank, the authorization is required even if you have previously signed up for automatic deduction. If you are paying by check, you may skip this step and proceed to Step 4 and mail your check per Step 2 instructions.
Step 4: PARENT PORTAL: If you have not signed up for Parent Portal in the past, please complete and sign the Parent Portal Form and return it to the address indicated on the form, or bring with you on Tuition Signing Day on July 19, 2016. THIS IS REQUIRED. Having parent portal allows you to view calendar, attendance, grades, behavior, assessment, fees, reports, learning style, messages and family information. If you have changes in your family information, you may make those changes on parent portal and keep the school up-to-date on new addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses.
Step 5: LUNCH ACCOUNTS: If you have not signed up for MySchoolBucks in the past, please register. We are requiring that everyone register with MySchoolBucks so they have access to their child’s account and can view charges and payments. In addition, you can sign up for email notification when the balance gets to a certain amount. You will need your child’s student ID number which can be found on Infinite Campus through Parent Portal. By having access to your child’s account, this will eliminate phone calls to the school and reduce the cost of mailing statements. You do not have to submit payment on line. You may send a check with your child. If you have more than one child in school, you may combine the deposit for all children and note in the memo part of the check how to allocate the funds between children. TUITION CHECKS AND LUNCH CHECKS CANNOT BE COMBINED AS THEY ARE SEPARATE ACCOUNTS.
If you wish to have an automatic deduction for lunch each month, please complete the Lunch Direct Payment Authorization, sign, and return to Vickie Haiar, Aberdeen Catholic Schools, 1400 North Dakota Street, Aberdeen, SD 57401. This form MUST be turned in each year and MUST be received by August 1, 2016. Please indicate how funds are to be allocated if more than one child.
Step 6: Please review the Back-To-School Packet that you received via email, or click the link below for further information.
