How to Pay for Parking and Locker Fees Online

As we shared in our orientation videos recently, beginning this week we are going to start collecting our locker/parking fees from our GHS students. The locker fee is $10 and the parking fee is $10 as well. We are excited to offer our families multiple ways to take care of paying the fees this year. As always you may send cash or check with your student to drop by our office when they arrive at school in the morning. Please label any fees in an envelope with student name and grade. If you prefer an online option, please see the instructions below. Thank you!

  1. The family will login in to their Titan Family Portal Account: https://family.titank12.com/. On a computer, they need to use Google Chrome or an app is available called Titan Family Connect in the app store.
  2. Click 'Log In' or 'Sign up Today!' to enroll. If this is your first time signing up, the parents will create an account as the parent and then add their student(s) once the account has been created using the + sign in the upper right corner.
  3. Check to ensure your students are added to the parent account. If so, proceed to step #4. If not, use the + sign in the upper right corner to add.
  4. On the left side of the webpage, click 'Store'.
  5. Select the items you would like to purchase. Example: Johnny (6th grade) needs to pay a locker fee. Select the 'Locker Fee' item. Use the drop down to select Johnny Smith and select 'Add to Cart'. **Note: Items are formatted per school/grade. This means only a High School Student will be able to purchase a parking spot, etc.**
  6. Once you have selected all the items needed for your students, click on the cart icon in the upper right corner to proceed to check out.
  7. During the checkout process, you will need to enter an address in BOTH the Billing section AND the Shipping Section for the transaction to complete.
  8. Complete your payment method information.
  9. Select 'Complete Purchase'.
  10. The school will be notified once the payment has been completed.

Parents/Guardians: If you have any questions or issues please call, Sara Long at 501-679-8214.
