A letter to parents from Jennifer Bachman,
 the regional board of directors enrollment specialist.
(I have cut part of it out to save space.)

The registration process for the next school year is  underway.  Your completion of the registration process, including payment of the non-refundable registration fee, indicates your commitment to having your child attend Our Lady Queen of Martyrs School for the 2018-19 school year.

You will receive an email on January 19, 2018 from TADS (sent from support@tads.com) inviting you to complete the online enrollment process to secure a seat for your student(s).

You will receive a separate email for each student who will be attending our school. This email will include a brief overview of the registration process and a link that is unique to your student’s information for enrollment including related payment due and grade level for 2018-19 school year. 

REGISTRATION PAYMENTS IN TADS

Registration fees are applied to each student registered and are due at the time of registration.  A reduced registration fee rate is being offered for those students who are registered on or before March 31, 2018.  You must complete this process no later than the above date to receive the reduced rate.  In addition, we cannot guarantee a seat for your child if do not complete the process and pay the related charge by that date.

Please note that if you have previously used TADS for Admissions, Enrollment or Financial Aid, you will be asked to log into TADS with the account you created at that time.  You must use the link in each email you receive in order to view the correct info for the 2018-19 school year.  Payments will be made per student.

As parents may remember the tuition rate for the 2018-2019 school year was posted a couple of weeks ago on this blog.
