Credit/Debit Card Payments now available in school or online!

Great news! We can now accept payments online or at school for the many things you currently write checks for! We will be utilizing Square - a completely safe alternative to writing checks. There is a 2.75% fee that is added to each transaction - it ends up costing about $1 per every $36 spent. It is a convenience fee and an option, but you may also still pay by cash or check. Tuition will still be paid using SmartTuition.

You can pay online from the website by clicking on the "payments" tab. You can pay for lunch, field trips, milk, CYO, Jean day donations, etc. all from the website. Put everything on one charge and you'll receive an emailed receipt. Just forward that receipt to JHeggie@catholicweb.com and we will make sure it is applied where it needs to be.

If you pay for lunch online, please add the receipt number (see the red box below) to the lunch form so we know which is your payment.

You can also pay by swiping your card in the main office.

We hope this is just one more convenient way to help you manage your daily life and school at St. Mary Rockwood!
