Teacher Fees (all fees are per semester)
Hallstrom registration fees do not cover teacher fees. The teacher fees listed in the class descriptions are per semester, are determined by each teacher, and payable directly to the teacher. We ask that you be prompt in paying your teachers their required fees by making a payment of some kind (either in full, half, or a monthly amount determined by your teacher) by the third Tuesday of each semester. Regardless of your payment schedule, full payment should be made by the semester's mid-term date. If you pay by cash or check, there is a teacher payment envelope in each teacher’s family file. Teachers who accept electronic payments have made note in their class descriptions.
Families whose teacher fees are not paid in full will not be allowed to return after midterm until teachers are paid in full, nor will they be able to register for the next semester’s classes. Families who are habitually late in paying teacher fees may be asked to pre-pay all teacher fees in full for future semesters. Families should never ask a teacher to waive teacher fees; please contact the Hallstrom Board for information regarding financial assistance.
NOTE: The first Tuesday of each semester is Add/Drop Day. If you have not dropped a class by 4:00 p.m. on Add/Drop Day, you are responsible for all the teacher fees for that semester, whether or not you withdraw from the class.
FIRE Sports Fees
Hallstrom Registration fees do not cover FIRE Sport Athletic Fees. The volleyball and basketball coaches will communicate when the athletic fees are due and these fees must be paid electronically through the Hallstrom website. Contact [email protected] with any questions.
Financial Help- Scrip Program
The Hallstrom Board offers SCRIP fundraising to all Hallstrom families to fund part or all of each family’s registration and teacher fees and to help cover Hallstrom’s administrative costs. Families buy SCRIP gift cards to local businesses; both Hallstrom and the family receive a small rebate for each dollar spent. Local businesses participating in the SCRIP program include many grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, and retailers in the Rockford area. SCRIP cards may be ordered in advance for Tuesday pick-up, purchased on Tuesdays at Hallstrom, or purchased online/via mobile app for immediate use.
Your friends and family members may also purchase SCRIP cards. Their family portion of the rebates will go to you, the current Hallstrom family, to apply to your Hallstrom registration and teacher fees. With a minimal amount of pre-planning, some, if not all, of your registration and teacher fees can be recovered by the rebates earned when purchasing SCRIP cards. There is no out-of-pocket expense to families, as you receive the full amount you spend on each SCRIP card. Contact Dawn Clinton, [email protected], our SCRIP Coordinator, for more information.
