8th Grade Overnight Field Trip Credit Balances/Refunds

Due to the cancellation of overnight field trips, many 8th grade students have credit balances in the online payment system.  Here is the status of credit balance refunds:

·         SOL Florida:  Full amount paid is available for credit/refund.

·         Band FL:     Refund/credit will be issued by the FMBBC.  Mr. Krieger will keep you updated about its status.  It is not the same refund schedule as our SOL Florida trip because of different itineraries.

·         Charleston:  We have received a partial refund from our travel company.  We expect to be refunded more at a later date and we will credit more to your account when that is received.  Unfortunately there is no estimated date for this yet. At this time, we can credit you for the following: 

o   Student payments 2 and 3. 

o   Chaperones payments 1, 2 and 3.

o   All Charleston trip related donations.


You may check your balance by reviewing your online payment account (“$Pay Fees” on this school webpage.)  If your credit balance is less than you expected, it is probably because if you had any other SMS fees outstanding, they were automatically paid with the refund.  High school fees have not been paid with the credit balance.  If you have a credit balance, you have 3 choices:

1.   Credit balance may be moved to child’s high school account

2.   Credit balance may be moved to child’s lunch account (this will carry forward to high school.)

3.   A check for the credit balance may be mailed to you.


To relay your preference to SMS, use this link PayFees Transfer or Refund to submit your choice.   If you choose the refund check, it can take up to two weeks to process.  Checks are issued weekly on Thursdays and are mailed from our district office.


 If you have questions about the process, fees or credits please contact the school bookkeeper:
