Membership Toolkit

  • We are using an online platform called Membership Toolkit. If you already have a Membership Toolkit account, you may link it to LCS by signing in. 
  • You will need to create a Membership Toolkit login.
  • Once you are logged in, click on “My Account,” then “My Forms.” Complete the “Family Profile” by entering the parent contact information and student grade levels.
  • Once you completed your “Family Profile,” go back to “My Forms” and complete the “Language Class Registration”
  • You may need to first click on your shopping cart in order for “Family Profile” to appear.
  • On some browsers, the link does not appear until you hover over it.

Payment

  • You may choose to register online and “pay later” by mailing us a check. Be sure to indicate the student(s)’s names and your order number on the check and mail to:
    • Livingston Chinese School, P.O. Box 179, Livingston, NJ 07039
  • Alternatively, you may also choose to pay by PayPal. The PayPal (2.2% + $0.30) transaction fee will be added to your total.
  • Financial payment plans can be arranged with LCS Treasurer, Christine Yin by emailing lcs_finance@yahoo.com.

Tuition for 2020-2021

Tuition for the coming school year remains flat. You may notice a difference in the amount because the book/supply fee is now combined with the tuition.

  • Tuition $490
  • Registration fee $25
  • HSA dues $30
  • Parent Duty Bond $50 

Active volunteers, Class Parents for 2019-2020 will receive an email from HSA Chair Jamie Chin with Parent Duty Bond Credit (promo code) or Class Parent Lead Soli Huey. If you did not receive an email from them, please email livingstonchineseschool@yahoo.com

Teachers and Staff will receive their Parent Duty Bond Credit (promo code) from Amy Fan or Jane Lai. If you did not receive the code, please email  livingstonchineseschool@yahoo.com

We are offering early bird discounts to families that register and pay early:

  • Register and pay by June 30 and receive $30 off each student. 
  • Register and pay by August 31 and receive $20 off each student.
  • Please note, this discount doesn’t combine with the 3+ sibling discount, which is 50% off the third (or more) sibling.

We are no longer offering a semester fee. Instead we will allow withdrawals as follows:

  • $30 processing fee applies
  • 90% refund if withdrawal requested on or before 09/30/2020
  • 70% refund if withdrawal requested on or before 10/31/2020
  • 30% refund if withdrawal requested on or before 12/31/2020
  • No refund after 12/31/2020.

Health and Safety

  • At this point, we are planning for all options, remote or in-person. We will keep families apprised of any updates we receive from the Livingston BOE, Heritage Middle School, and our own LCS Board of Directors.
  • We are currently accepting registration for language classes only. Once we have clarity on a school opening date and health/safety procedures, we will assess our activity class programs.
