Beginning with the 2019-20 school year, South O’Brien will be using PaymentSpring instead of Payschool.  PaymentSpring is integrated into the JMC Parent portal.  You can use this service to make payments for meals and other fees by debit or credit card, or with an electronic check.  Meal deposits and fee payments will appear almost instantly in the student’s account.

JMC Online Payments- Parent and Guardian Instructional Video describes how to use PaymentSpring through the JMC Parent portal.

JMC Login – all JMC links on the South O’Brien website open the JMC login page with six options. Select the Parents icon, make sure that the year is correct, and then log in.

Reminder The JMC Parent portal gives parents/guardians the ability to read and change a great deal of information, including contact emails and phone numbers. Please do not share your Parent portal password with your student(s). Students have their own login to check assignment and grading information.
