Complete paperwork at MyPaymentsPlus

Beginning July 17, parents can start completing necessary back-to-school paperwork at www.MyPaymentsPlus.com. Fund cafeteria accounts; join PTSA; and contribute to areas that interest your student and you. Contributions help Gwin Oaks purchase consumable items for day-to-day instruction and technology needs. Your child benefits directly, and the school continues to thrive.

Need to set up a MyPaymentsPlus account? Using your child’s student ID number, create a free account to submit forms, donate to fundraisers, and more.

Parent Portal is a must-have.

Parents with existing accounts should log in to update their home phone number or emergency contacts. (Look in the Update Student Information tab.) To change an email address or home address, complete a Parent Portal application form found on the school website under the Parents tab; indicate on the form that the changes are for an existing, active account.

To apply for a parent portal account, download an application from the school website under the Parents tab. Bring the completed form and present a picture ID to a staff member in the office.

Helpful Tip: Add no-reply@gcpsk12.org to your email address book to avoid school emails being blocked or filtered.
