paw ON-LINE PAYMENT FOR MILK, ASSIGNMENTS PADS, AND RECORDERS

Our district will again be using an online method for the payment of milk, assignment pads, and recorders.  Payment must be made by using PayForIt.  If you are not already registered for PayForIt, you may do so by logging on to www.payforit.net and selecting the “Sign Up” option from the menu.

To pay the fees online, once you are signed up, you will need to add your children to your account by selecting “Add Students.”  Once all your children are added, you will go to “Fees,” then “Make a fee payment” and select the fees you are opting to pay. For milk you will see 3 options, please select the type of milk your child would like.  If you change your mind after payment, please contact the school.

If you have problems on the PayForIt site, there is a “How Do I…” option from the top menu with tutorials on common questions.  You may also go to the PayForIt.Net information page.

Please note that you will need your child’s 6 digit Student ID # which is located on the Parent Portal in Genesis next to your child’s picture. If you have difficulty logging on to the Genesis Parent Portal, please contact the Genesis Helpdesk at genesis@wyckoffps.org
