Online Payments

There is a currently a problem with the online payment system at this time.  It is being worked on and you will be notified when it will be available to use.

 

We are encouraging families to pay for any school fees (agendas, field trips, etc.) by using the online payment system.  This makes it A LOT easier for the administration at the school to process and track payments for the over 450 students we have attending.  Please follow the directions below to get set up for each of your children.

  • STEP 1: Go to:   https://rbe.schoolcashonline.com
  • STEP 2: Register by selecting the “Get Started Now” and follow the steps
  • STEP 3: After you receive the confirmation email, please select the ‘click here’ option, sign in and add each of your children to your household account.

Thanks for your cooperation with this!  We appreciate your support.
