School Fees

School fees may be paid online by going to myschoolfees.com. Items such as the Chromebook Protection Plan and yearbooks can also be paid through My School Fees when paying for required fees. These items are listed under “optional fees.” All credit card transactions, whether in person or online, will incur a $2 fee as directed by a recent district finance policy.

Administrators will be available to answer questions and help with fee waivers. It is necessary to apply for a fee waiver annually; last year’s application will not be valid for this school year. Students may receive a fee waiver for one of the following reasons:

  • Family receives TANF (currently qualified for financial assistance or food stamps)
  • Student receives Supplemental Security Income (qualified child with disabilities)
  • Student qualifies for McKinney-Vento
  • Student is in Foster Care (under Utah or local governmental supervision) or State Custody
  • Student is eligible based on family/household income verification

Please bring the required income verification as described in the fee waiver application as well as the application English Fee Waiver Application / Spanish Fee Waiver Application

Chromebook Protection Plan

An optional Chromebook Protection Plan is available for $30. This will cover the initial cost of a lost or damaged chromebook. We encourage parents to purchase the Chromebook Protection Plan in case of loss or damage. The cost to replace a chromebook is $300. This fee will be assessed to the student in the event of a lost, stolen or damaged chromebook. The Chromebook Protection Plan can be paid for online through myschoolfees.com long with all other fees listed under “optional fees.” Additional information regarding the Chromebook Protection Plan coverage is located on our website at https://sfjhs.nebo.edu/content/parent-and-student-information. We encourage purchasing the protection plan.

Theater Information

It's AUDITION time for our 2nd annual Nebo Jr. Theatre Competitions! This week we're having auditions for the Spanish Fork Jr. Theatre Competition Team. All the junior highs and middle schools in Nebo School District prepare acting scenes, monologues, and musical ensemble selections and compete against each other. All students who want to audition need to pick up an information sheet in Miss Holley's room, get the permission slip signed, and fill out an audition form.

Musical Ensemble auditions are Tuesday after school. Students need to come prepared with a musical theatre or Disney song that's 16 to 24 measures long (a verse or chorus). They'll learn a dance sequence at the auditions. On Wednesday, we're having the acting auditions. The students need to pick up a monologue paper in Miss Holley's room (#37) and prepare a monologue from that sheet to perform.
