How to use our web portal.
Here's a quick tutorial on how to use our website. Please be sure to read our "FAQs" page, if you haven't already. We want to be sure every parent is comfortable using our system. We understand our "no-refund" policy is strict, but just like submitting cash or check, even if your child does not attend a field trip, that money will not be refunded.
Click on the shopping bag on top right corner of the page to view items you've added to your cart.
Field Trip or Specific Activity Page
For field trips and various PTO events, we need to collect key information about your child so that we know which homeroom teacher to notify of your payment:
Please select your child's homeroom # from the list.
If your child's homeroom is not on this list, then it's not possible to submit payment for that homeroom. Please contact your child's homeroom teacher and let him/her know you wish to pay for the activity online.
If you have more than 1 child going to the same field trip/event, please add them to the cart separately so that we capture the correct homeroom. (Please keep quantity to 1, else you may be charged multiple times).
Please note that you still need to submit the paper permission slip back to the homeroom teacher, as it contains your emergency contact information should something happen to your child during the trip.
On the permission form, you can write "Paid Online, Order #" so that the teacher knows you've paid online. The teachers will be able to verify that you've paid through our internal systems.
Shopping Bag/Cart Page
After you've added all of your activities, you can click on the shopping bag icon at the top of the page to view everything in your cart.
We have a no-refund policy. Please review your items and double check the following:
You selected the correct activity (i.e. the correct field trip)
"Quantity" for each item is set to 1 unless you're making a donation of our own designated amount.
If you have more than 1 child attending the same field trip, that field trip should be listed separately for each child.
You selected the correct homeroom # for each child. This is how we know which homeroom teacher to notify of your payment - if this information is incorrect, it may delay the processing of your payment.
If you see an error, simply click on the picture of the item, correct the information and re-add it to the cart. Then, click on "remove item" for the one that contains the error.
Checkout With "Visa/MasterCard"
When you're comfortable with your shopping cart items, you may click on "Pay with Visa or MasterCard" or "Checkout With PayPal" if you have a PayPal account.
We accept credit cards or debit cards that are issued by Visa or MasterCard. If you wish to pay with your bank account, you can sign up with PayPal and choose "Transfer direct from bank account" as your payment method.
Please enter your shipping address / billing address for the credit card you'd like to use. While we are not technically "shipping" anything to you, there is no way for us to disable these pages.
You will see a "shipping" cost added to your order. That is in fact the convenience fee that we charge to help us offset the costs of maintaining this website and for processing payments online. If you do not wish the pay the fee, simply exit out and submit cash or check directly to your child's homeroom teacher.
Checkout With PayPal
If you choose to checkout with PayPal, you will be taken to PayPal to enter your login information and to select your payment method, just like any other purchases you've made using PayPal.
If you don't have a PayPal account, you may sign up for a free account at www.paypal.com.
The benefits of PayPal:
Easily and quickly store your bank account, credit card or debit card information there.
No need to re-type all of your card numbers/information each time you checkout on our website, simply enter your login information at PayPal, choose the payment method you want and then you're done!
