Update contact details including who is authorized to pick up your child(ren).
In order to keep everyone safe we have completely redesigned our drop-off to include daily health checks for grades and EC for the 20-21 school year. We are confident that our new processes will reduce exposure both during the drop-off process, and for children during school.
Grades | 8:00-8:15am
Early Childhood | 8:15-8:30am
- For Early Pick-Up, upon arrival to pick up the child, please come to the office to sign out your child, and obtain an “early pick-up” slip to take to the class teacher.
- Children in the EC Program need to be signed in each morning and signed out upon pick-up.
Grades and full-day Early Childhood children need to bring a lunch. Parents are requested to send a healthy, wholesome lunch along with a cloth napkin. Please no candy, gum, soda, or overly sweet desserts.
For 21-22 School Year, we are unable to offer Grades Extended Care as we are maintaining class groupings throughout each day in accordance with new health guidelines. For the Early Childhood, you may sign up to be in the classroom until 5pm, as space allows.
If your child is going to be absent for any reason please contact the front office by 9am (303) 652-0130 firstname.lastname@example.org
Please stop at the office to sign in your child and obtain a tardy pass
Please make every effort to schedule doctor, orthodontist, dentist, and other such appointments outside of school hours. If your child must leave school for the remainder of the day or for a few hours due to an appointment:
- Please try to arrange for times that will not impact classes.
- Contact your teacher directly at least one day in advance, if possible, stating the time you wish to pick them up, and the reason.
- Upon arrival to pick up the child:
- EC: Sign the child per standard EC sign in/sign out procedures.
- Grades: Come to the office to sign out your child, and obtain an “early pick-up” slip to take to the class teacher.
- If the child returns to school on the same day:
- EC: Follow sign in/sign out procedures in your classroom.
- Grades: Come to the office to sign in your child, and obtain a “tardy” slip to take to the class teacher.

Blackbaud Tuition Management (formerly Smart Tuition) FAQ
Why is my monthly amount different?
Your total due may change each month due to fees, discounts, and adjustments to tuition that have been made by your school.
Who do I contact if I have a question regarding my bill?
You can call (888) 868-8828, 24/7 and a Smart Tuition representative will be happy to assist in answering your questions. If you disagree with the amount of tuition owed, then we will contact the school on your behalf and clarify the total due. Smart Tuition is not authorized to modify the amount of tuition due or arrange for alternative payment plans without the school’s approval.
Is there a way I can update my username and password?
You can update your password directly from your Smart Tuition account at www.parents.smarttuition.com or you can call us at (888) 868-8828 and a representative will be able to update your username and password.
I just realized my tuition is due in less than two days. What is the quickest way to make a payment?
Smart Tuition offers a couple of immediate payment options.
1. Pay online at www.parents.smarttuition.com
2. Over the phone 24/7, 365 days a year, by calling (888) 868-8828
Note: Payments made by phone and web are posted the same day they are received.
Can I pay using my bank's online bill pay service?
Yes, you can utilize your bank’s online bill pay service to send payments to Smart Tuition. However, there are a few things to note regarding online bill pay. Online bill pay services do NOT electronically transfer funds to Smart Tuition. Your bank will actually mail a check to Smart Tuition. Because of this, we advise that you set up your online bill pay to occur at least 7 days prior to your due date to ensure the check is received by Smart Tuition before the due date.

What is my school's late payment policy?
If your payment is not made by your due date or you are carrying an outstanding balance, a late fee may apply. Smart Tuition will remind you of your upcoming payment to help you pay on time. We will also advise you when you have missed a payment to help you catch up and avoid future fees.
Are there bank fees associated with payments that are not successful?
A fee of $30 will be applied to your account for any failed payment processed via auto-debit, phone, web, and for failed check payments. Your bank may impose additional fees.
What credit cards do you accept?
