Dear OLV School and Learning Ladder Families,
We are excited to start the school registration process for the 2022-23 school year. Registration events will be held in the Fellowship Hall on August 16th for families with children in grades K-6 and August 18th for families with children in Learning Ladder Preschool. There will be two meeting times, 12-1pm and 5:30-6:30pm, families should attend the meeting time that works best for them. Each family only needs to attend one meeting. If you have students in both OLV School and Learning Ladder Preschool, please attend one of the meetings on August 18th. The information below will help make the registration process quick and smooth by allowing you to get some of it done prior to the meeting and let you know what you need to bring with you.
Before you attend your registration meeting
Please complete the online registration portion through JMC prior to attending your registration meeting. Online registration will be open Monday, August 1st through Monday August 15th.To complete the online registration portion go to https://ffolvschool.onlinejmc.
The instructions walk you through the process of registering each child. You will need to confirm and/or add your student information, parent information, and 2 emergency contacts for each child (preschool students must have 3 emergency contacts). You also need to answer other enrollment and health questions for each child you are registering. To complete the registration process, you need to electronically sign 3 documents: acknowledgement of the Parent/Student Handbook, request for health services (this provides funding for our school nurse), and request for textbooks (this provides funding for textbooks). You can access the Parent/Student Handbook any time after registration is closed by clicking on “Register for 2022-2023.” Let the office know if you need a printed copy.
An online free and reduced meals application is available in JMC. Families are encouraged to apply for free or reduced meal benefits. The application is quick and easy. Free and reduced numbers are used to help the school access funding in many different ways, including access to Title I support. Please consider applying even if you’re not sure you qualify.
Tuition, fees, and payments for 2022-23
You will be given a tuition and fees bill for the 2022-23 school year at your registration meeting, but you can always view and pay your tuition, fees, and lunch balances in the JMC family portal or via the JMC family app. You will be asked to declare your tuition payment plan for the 2022-23 school year at the in-person registration event. Also at the registration meeting, parents will be asked to pay morning milk fees (either for the first trimester or the year), activity fees, make a deposit in the family lunch account ($50 per student is recommended), and pay any outstanding balances from the previous school year. This can be done online prior to the registration meeting or via check when you’re there.
New this year, parents can set up their own recurring ACH payments through the JMC parent portal. Credit card payments will still be accepted in JMC. Tuition and fees payments made online are charged a $4 processing fee and lunch deposits are charged a $2 fee.
Please contact the school if you need a medication authorization form, special diet form, or a scholarship application. These forms will be available at the registration meetings as well. If you’d like someone to walk you through the online process, call the school office 218-736-6661 between 9am-4pm. Leave a message if no one answers, and we will get back to you. We are excited to see you in August as we prepare for another wonderful year of learning and growing in faith.
