Billing and Payments
We are a self-supporting school district program that relies solely on tuition to fund the program
Adventure Connection/Epic Summer uses a paperless billing system.
You will be emailed on the 15th of each month alerting you that your invoice for the current month is ready to view. All invoices are payable to Adventure Connection, 2520 E. 12th Ave., N. St. Paul, MN 55109. You may pay with cash, money order, personal check, or by Visa, Mastercard, or Discover. Checks and money orders can be mailed to the Adventure Connection office, you may deliver your check or money order to the AC office or place it into the outdoor drop box, you may call the office and pay with a credit card by phone, or you may make payments online using a credit card, debit card, or a checking/savings account at https://isd622.thatscommunityed.com. Cash payments are accepted only at the Adventure Connection office. Payment will not be accepted at the sites. No credit will be given for illness or absence.
It is your responsibility to make payment by the due date. If you do not receive a bill, notify the billing secretary for assistance in determining the amount due and to request a replacement (emailed) invoice.
Late/Past Due Payments: A $20.00 late payment fee will be assessed to your account after the last day of the month on any unpaid balance. In the event that your account becomes delinquent, you will be notified in writing. Failure to make payment in full will result in suspension from the program until the account is paid in full. No credits will be given for the dates your care is suspended due to non-payment. Chronic, or three consecutive, late payments may jeopardize your child care services.
If you are unable to make your payment by the due date, call the billing secretary to discuss payment arrangements. If no payment or contact is made by the end of the month, child care will be suspended. Families whose accounts are past due will not be able to sign up for additional care, add days to their contract or attend non-school days.
If a check is returned due to insufficient funds, all future payments must be made in cash, money order, or credit card and you will be responsible for any recovery fees.
The person who submits the registration request for Adventure Connection/Epic Summer is responsible for all costs incurred for contracted days whether your child attends or not, unless we have received a written contract change or withdrawal with sufficient notice.
Schedule Changes: (School Year) A status change request must be made one week in advance of any changes in your schedule. Registration and schedule changes can be done on the website www.isd622.thatscommunityed.com. Accommodating such a request is subject to the approval of the site manager and will be based on space availability, student/staff ratio and other guidelines. There is a $15.00 schedule change fee for all schedule changes. This applies to school year only. No changes/cancellations can be made to your summer contract after the deadline shown on the online registration program.
(Summer) Changes can be made to your summer contract up to the May 20 deadline. Change requests must be made online. No changes or cancellations can be made to summer contracts after the deadline shown on the online registration program. You are responsible for all days/weeks for which you have registered. Credit for days missed cannot be issued regardless of the reason, i.e. illness, vacation, change of plans, etc. A two week written notice is required when withdrawing from the Adventure Connection school year program. If no notice is given, two weeks of tuition, per child, will be charged to your account. (Applies to school year only. No changes or cancellations can be made to the summer contract after the May 20 deadline.)
Minnesota Child Care Assistance or Other Assistance Programs:
The registration fee must be paid when registering and it will be reimbursed once it has been paid by assistance. Written authorization including the number of hours you are approved for, if there is a copay, and any claim forms must be received before the start date. You are responsible for all expenses that financial assistance does not cover and assume responsibility for fulfilling county requirements.
Year-end tax statements can be accessed through your online account mid to late January. Tax statements are not mailed.
IMPORTANT: Make sure we have the correct email address on your account to avoid any problems in setting up your online account.
