 Misc Notes - PLEASE READ...

  • The PO request form is NOT the approved PO. Once approved, a copy will be emailed to you.
  • Received goods - A packing slip for each item must be signed and turned into Mrs. Nicholson after received. If a packing slip was not sent, then you must send Mrs. Nicholson a email stating that everything came in and "ok to pay". 
  • Clubs - If you are making a purchase for a club, please complete and sign a club authorization form.  The Sponsor and two Officers must sign. Please turn in with invoice to be paid.
  • Checks to be issued - A 2 day window is needed for request to be made for any payments Teachers/Coaches are to take in hand.
  • P3 Days - A PO must be submitted for approval. Vendor is RCBOE.  Please note date of P3 Day on PO request. (See current rates below).
