We just got our info for online registration and ours will be $158 per child for 1st-3rd grade.  It was only $119 last year.  We live in a small town/rural school community.

 I live in a rural area as well.  Our fees will be $0.  There are some fees once your child is in HS, but nothing for elementary or middle school.

 We don't have school fees.  I'm a teacher and I don't even know what they are for.  What do the fees pay for?

Hot lunch? Do they serve a cold lunch too? (I'm asking because I've never heard this before...)

We live in a small town as well and our school feels are never more than $20. This year kindergarten is only a $10 fee, we send the back pack, a pack of pencils and the nap mat. The $10 covers everything else.
