How to Pay Your Student’s Account
Payments may be made by check or credit card. Please help us meet our financial obligations by making sure your payments are timely. Payments may be submitted using one of three different options:
Fishers High School Band Boosters
P.O. Box 188
Fishers, IN 46038
2) Placing them in the locked box in the band room
3) Pay online via Cut Time
All payments made through this online payment system are final are not refundable except as provided by the FHS Band Boosters. If you pay your band fees with a credit card through Cut Time, you will be charged a 2.25% convenience fee. For example, a $137 payment would be $140.08 with the $3.08 additional fee. Parent are always welcome to pay with a check and avoid this fee.
Each student and parent will be required to sign a commitment form prior to the start of the season. Once that commitment form is received, the student will be required to pay the full fee for the season, regardless of the reason for withdrawal. The only exception is withdrawal due to injury.
If your child sustains an injury during the season that requires he/she to sit out the rest of the season, he/she is eligible for a partial refund. To request this reimbursement, the student must provide the FHS Band Directors with a physician’s statement that proves the student’s injury or illness prevents his or her continued participation within 30 days of the student’s injury or illness. This reimbursement is limited to any unused funds which were paid directly by the student or his or her parents. After a request for a refund is received in writing by the SAR, the director and the board will decide on an amount to be refunded. The amount refunded will be dependent on the percentage of the season that is left, and the amount of money already invested in the student for instruction, food, uniform, etc.
Requests for refunds must be made in writing to the SAR by within 30 days of the last day of school (for graduating seniors.) and within 30 days of an injury. Please include who the check should be made to and the address to which the check should be mailed. Please allow 14 business days for processing and payment. Read full Student Account Policy
