Welcome to Fall, 2019 at Homeschool Connections!
We're so excited to have this fall semester officially underway!
First, we'll list general announcements that are for everyone!
Then below, we list announcements specific to each campus - for instance PIZZA DAY!
Hey, Parent, are you on campus for lunch?
Campuses need lunch moms & dads - for monitoring kids, selling snacks, & cleaning up. Contact your campus supervisor or Shelly if you're interested!

Early Pay Discount ends Sept. 30
Discount is for Self-Pay Only

Paying for classes before Sept. 30:
When making payments in Orbund Please make sure you are in the CORRECT SEMESTER (Fall 2019)!

Orbund Invoice will say $175/class.

ONLY pay $140 per class that is not being funded by a district .
Example: If you have 6 classes on your invoice, but 4 are being paid for by a district, your early-payment for the remaining 2 classes is $280.
Add Lunch and Study Hall fees to that amount to get your total payment due.
A $35/class credit will be applied to your account after September 30 for each class paid.

After September 30th all classes are charged the regular rate of $175 per class.

District Funding for Classes

Verified and approved district funding credits will be applied to your account by mid-November.
