Although registration is valid for the whole school year, tuition is paid semester-by-semester. Balance shown in your family registration page after 12/28/2011 is your tuition for 2012 spring semester. You can pay the tuition by mail or in person at school with check or money order. Cash or credit card is not accepted. The registration information sheet is for your record only and doesn¡¯t need to be turned in. One tuition check for the entire family is preferred. Please make sure to write your family ID AND student ID(s) on the front of the check!!!

You should have received the following notice regarding the parent duty check from the school on the last school day of fall semester:
¡°In order to encourage volunteerism, starting from 2012 spring semester, each family will be required to submit a Parent Duty check of $80 in addition to the regular tuition check on the first school day. The check will be returned to you if you perform the parent duty on the assigned duty day. If you fail to fulfill the parent duty, the check will be deposited to the school¡¯s bank account.
The check shall be payable to SLMCS, dated 05/13/2012, and contain a family ID and contact phone number on the check memo.¡±
