We will be sending home forms to have you pay for your child's field trips online. This amount will cover the cost of the field trips and transportation for the year. Please submit your child's payment and return SIGNED permission forms as we send them to you.
Please note that Jackson Field Trip payments will be handled a bit differently this year. Information regarding these changes are detailed in the blurb below from “This Week at Warren T. Jackson.” There is a link to the online registration site included in the blurb and it does not take long to go through the process.
You will need to have your child’s Student Identification number in order to complete the payment. This is a 7 digit number that most likely starts with the number 2. It would have been included with your registration information or on old report cards for those that are repeating. The front office can provide the number for you, but you have to stop by in person and provide identification.
WE HAVE AN IN HOUSE FIELD TRIP THIS FRIDAY (September 30th) SO YOU MUST COMPLETE THIS PROCESS PRIOR TO FRIDAY IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR CHILD TO PARTICIPATE!
You will still need to sign and return permission forms when they are sent home in your child’s backpack.
Field Trip Payments
We also have a new online payment portal for Field Trips. The PTA has elected to enroll Jackson into the Atlanta Public Schools Online School Payments (OSP) portal. The OSP is provided to facilitate payment for school fees for a variety of products and services - including Field Trips and other pass through expenses. The system is currently offered to a select number of schools, including Jackson and Morris Brandon. We believe this system will be a convenience and benefit to parents, teachers and administrators.
The system will be available starting tomorrow, Monday, September 26th. Access the portal at http://osp.osmsinc.com/atlanta/. The deadline to pay your Field Trip fees is October 18, 2016. Instructions can be found on www.wtjackson.org or here. If you have any questions, please contact the Main Office or email Astrid Moyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and please feel free to contact me should you have any questions. My apologies for the annoying highlights – just trying to make sure everyone puts this on the priority list.
