District Check In & Updates - Step 1 of 2 - Open July 11 - Aug. 14
Activity: Complete the Adams 12 Online Check In
Key Dates: July 11, 2022 (system opens) to August 14, 2022 (check-ins due)
Overview: Stargate utilizes the same Adams 12 Five Star Schools' district check-in process used by all families with students enrolled in any district school. Online check-in allows families to verify and update primary household and demographic information for their students, at their convenience. Families can also update or add emergency contacts and update health information for all students in the primary household.
Updates Required to ensure accurate information for your family:
Parent/Guardian phone numbers-these should be reviewed/corrected to ensure they are current.
Parent/Guardian email addresses- ALL school communications are sent through THESE email addresses. In addition, to vote in Stargate elections, a unique valid email is required for EACH parent/guardian. These should be reviewed/corrected to ensure that they are current.
Parent/Guardian physical address(es) - all address changes require completion of the Adams 12 Household Change form along with one proof of residency showing your new address. Examples: current utility bill, mortgage statements, lease agreement, declaration of residence. More Information can be found on the Adams 12 website.
Emergency Contacts - emergency contacts are people who will be contacted in case of an emergency if the parents/guardians cannot be reached. The Emergency Contacts are not authorized to pick up students from school during the school day.
Student Pick up Authorization-if someone other than the parent/guardian will be authorized to pick up your student during the school day, a Student Pick up Authorization Form must be filled out and turned in during Registration. This form must be completed/renewed every school year. Once the form is submitted to the school, it is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to submit a new form if there are any changes. The Student Pick up Authorization form can also be found on the Infinite Campus page.

Log in to your payforit.net account and pay your 2022-2023 fees, as well as any outstanding fees from prior years. If you do not have a payforit.net account, you will need to create a new account and then add your child to the account before you can pay your student fees and complete your online check in / registration. You will need your child’s student ID number to add them to your new account. To find the ID, log into Infinite Campus, click "today" in the left hand navigation and bring up a profile screen with your child's ID.
Check notifications preferences. Please be sure to opt to have payforit email you when new fees are assigned to your account. If you are having difficulties setting up your account or updating notifications preferences, please contact payforit directly at 800-572-6642.
Fees to Expect Later. Fees for overnight field trips will be assigned once the dates have been confirmed. AP Exam fees are due by October 1, 2022. Other fees, including extracurricular fees for winter and spring sports, will be applied when your student registers.
Review the Community Handbook and Policies regarding fees (pgs. 7 & 15).
