Great Job Everyone!!
Due to our new electronically based payment system for breakfast & lunch, the Middle School will not be "lending" money to students in the office any longer. Pomptonian Food Service has agreed to allow a student up to five lunches if they forget their money, after that a parent/guardian will have to add to the student's account or the student will not receive lunch until the account is rectified. If your account remains "in the negative" you will receive a letter from the food service.
The New Jersey Department of Education is pleased to announce the Governor’s Award for Outstanding Educator of the Year. (Read on…)

What is PayForIt?
PayForIt (PFI) is a Secure Online Payment system which simplifies payment, collection and balancing of funds for Schools.
PFI is a web-based portal system that is now used in the Roselle Park School District. PFI was developed and is supported with the philosophy of quick, simple and practical.
Roselle Park School District offers PFI to our parents to fund student cafeteria prepayment accounts online. In the future, we may consider expanding the types of fees which we collect to include other types of student fees.
Payments can be made by credit card (Visa, MC or Discover)or ACH (electronic checking) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the parents’ convenience.
Parents can review what their children are purchasing in the cafeteria along with account payment history information.
PFI supports increased communication between the school & the parents.
School messages are automatically emailed to parents.
A continuous online survey is provided to monitor parent feedback and ideas.
Student information is automatically transferred from year-to-year.
Parents can manage more than one student account.
Parents can establish an “auto-replenish” threshold, to work like EZ Pass, or can choose to receive “low balance” emails.
PFI is Payment Card Industry Security-compliant and maintains industry standard SSL certificates. This ensures all data is safe & secure as defined by the credit card industry.
How to sign up: Log on to www.payforit.net
Select the “Sign Up” option from the menu. The screens will guide you through the process to establish your account:
The internet convenience fee is explained, it is 3.95 % of credit card transactions; there is a $1.75 charge to parents for ACH payments.
You will be prompted to enter your contact data, password, payment information, etc.;
You will need to indicate which student(s) to attach to your account. Students are already loaded in the PFI system. PFI utilizes the same student ID number already used throughout Roselle Park School District functions. If you are unsure of your student’s ID number, please contact your individual schools’ registrar.
Once all information is entered, PFI will email a validation code for you to confirm the registration. Once confirmed you can begin using PFI as often as you’d like.
How to get help
How Do I … Each major function used in PFI, has online help available under the menu option of “How Do I …”. The “How Do I” provides step by step instructions as well as screen examples.
FAQ : When starting to use PFI, it is a good idea to review the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) available within the Help menu option.
