PaySchools: Make Payments Online!
 
Paying school-related fees and making purchases are now easier for Silo families. Silo Public Schools is pleased to unveil our new, online payment processing system, PaySchools. This program allows you to pay school fees for breakfast, lunch or extra-curricular activities; or make purchases, including school apparel or yearbooks via e-check or credit card at your convenience all from our school Web site, anywhere, anytime.
 
How It Works
 
The first time you access PaySchools, you will be asked to create a username and password. After you login, simply select the item(s) you wish to purchase then choose to pay by e-check or credit card. To pay by e-check (directly debiting your bank account), you will enter your bank’s ABA routing number and personal bank account number. To make your purchase by credit card, enter the account number and expiration date of your Visa, MasterCard or Discover credit card. After you complete your purchase, an e-mail confirmation and receipt will immediately be sent to you. PaySchools uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, requires passwords throughout the program, and does not store personal bank or credit card information to ensure privacy and security for users.
 
A $2 convenience fee is charged each time you complete the payment process to help cover the cost of implementing and maintaining this on-line fee payment service. We suggest that you pay for multiple students at one time, to avoid being charged more than one $2 fee.
