Have you completed your Emergency Data Review for your child?

Every year it is necessary that you review and update your child's emergency data. Please see the attached directions for assistance.


Parents can access their own login credentials by clicking the Password Recovery link under Quick Links on the Worthington Schools main page. They enter their email address (it needs to be the email that we have on file for them) and will immediately get an email sent to them with their district-provided username and password, which they can use to login to the Parent Portal as well as Infinite Campus.

MyPayments Plus

My Payments Plus is where you will pay school fees, Full day Kindergarten tuition and put money on your child's lunch account. Look under parent resources for this website.


For My Payments Plus, parents can find their child's 9-digit Student ID # by logging in to Infinite Campus and clicking on Today. The 9-digit student number is under student name, visible on both the app and when accessing Infinite Campus through the Parent Portal or the Infinite Campus website.


School Fees:

Kindergarten: $24.00

Grade 1-3: $42.00

Grade 4-5: $36.00

If you feel you qualify for free and reduced lunch, we suggest you fill this form out online (see above under Food Service). If you qualify your student's fees could be free or reduced.
