Payment Information

Please note that we will no longer be able to give change on cash payments sent in with your student for learning expeditions and other expenses. (This does not apply to cafeteria or SACC fees) For example, if you are sending in $20 for an LE fee of $18, we will be unable to return the $2 difference to your student. If you require a refund of an overpayment, you will need to request a refund from the bookkeeper. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact our bookkeeper, Angie Nye, at nye_angela@hcde.org. Thank you!

Lightning Letter

Parents/Guardians, if you are NOT receiving a Normal Park Lightning Letter via email on Mondays of each week, please email Heather Cockerham cockerham_h@hcde.org and she will add you to the email list. The Lightning Letter is a weekly newsletter filled with important dates, volunteer opportunities, and news to keep you updated on the wonderful happenings at NPMM.

Credit Cards

 

We are excited to announce that families now have the option to use debit/credit cards to pay for Learning Expedition costs! The use of the Online School Payment system is entirely optional, but a very convenient way to pay your fees. Please note that the Online School Payment system charges a 4% convenience fee which is added to your total at checkout. Your teacher will then receive an email notification as soon as payment is complete. Go to http://tinyurl.com/paoevzb to create your login account. You may add all of your students from multiple HCDE schools into this single account. You can also access the OSP website from the main page of the Normal Park website. There is a link on the left side under Resources. For more information or if you have questions about this tool, please contact Angie Nye at nye_angela@hcde.org or 209-5907.
