Past due balances of over one month jeopardize student attendance. Families will lose enrollment status if their entire balance is not paid prior to the last day of school. After the last day of school, families may only re-enroll when this balance is resolved. A seat is only guaranteed when a student is actively enrolled. New families may not enroll if they owe money to a previous school.
