School Fees: Elementary school fees are $60 and Kindergarten fees are $40.  You may pay school fees online using SPS EZPAY.


SPS EZPAY is the website application that allows parents to pay school fees, participation fees and add to their children’s lunch accounts with a credit card over the internet. Parents can access the website from the link on our school website www.fairfieldcityschools.com or by typing in www.spsezpayfairfield.com. Parents will just need an email account and their student’s ID number. This is an easy way to pay fees and make sure your student has money for lunch. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
