STUDENT FEE REMINDER
 
There are a few changes this year, so here is a quick guide detailing HOW and WHERE to pay your student’s fees:
 
#1 – Parent PowerSchool Account – horizonclc.powerschool.com/public
The Consumable Supply Fee and any Elective Fees (Grades 5-6) are paid through PowerSchool.
 
Once you log in, select Account Preferences in the left margin to make sure your email address is up to date and that all of your Horizon Honors students are linked to your account. Then select Pay Online to view fees. 
 
Fees can only be accessed on a computer – phones will not work. 
 
From the Summary Tab, you should see all students linked to your PowerSchool account and their fees. Select each Student Tab to view and add fees to your cart. Then click on the Cart icon in the top right to choose a payment method. 
You can pay all fees in full, make a Partial Payment, or set up a Payment Plan that will break up the total into 5 equal installments that will be automatically charged on the 18th of each month – August through December. Installment Plans are unique to each school, so if you have both Elementary and Secondary students, you will need to set up a Payment Plan for both schools (K-6 and 7-12).  Note: Lost, Damaged, or Missing Books will be assessed a fee and must be paid separately from Installment Plans.

  • Please know student student fees need to be paid before students can participate in classroom fieldtrips.
 
  • The Consumable Supply Fee covers student supplies (markers, glue, scissors, construction paper, etc.) that Horizon Honors provides for each student, as well as classroom and school supplies including copy paper, toner, tissues, wipes, technology supplies, teacher supplies, etc.
 
  • If you wish to waive this optional supply fee, you may instead provide a comparable assortment of classroom/school supplies. Contact the Front Office for a waiver and list of acceptable supplies.
