What is Scrip?
Scrip is a gift certificate program that offers a variety of gift cards for participating families to purchase. The scrip or gift certificates are purchased by the Abiding Savior scrip program at a discount and sold to participants at face value. The difference is the profit. This profit is split (50/50) between the school and the family purchasing the scrip.
The family’s profit is based on purchases between May 1 and April 30. The credit will be applied to the following year’s tuition (even for preschool!) or to your child’s extended field trip. The tuition credit is reflected on the June statement. If your child is attending an extended field trip (grades 4-8), the scrip credit will be applied to offset the cost of the trip. After the field trip, any additional scrip credit will be applied to next year’s tuition. If your child is not returning to Abiding Savior the following year, the entire credit will be donated to AbidingSaviorLutheranSchool. No cash refunds will be given.
The school or preschool uses the profit for non-budgeted items such as playground equipment, shading for the playground, and computers for the classroom.
Grocery Store Credits
As part of the scrip program, participating grocery store chains will automatically send payments to the school based on club card usage. Ralphs and Vons/Pavilions participate in this program, but families must register their card numbers in order for the school to receive the credit, families do not receive credit for this. Please email Keigh Lee Horn in the school office or see the scrip counter to receive the information to register your grocery club cards.
How do we get started using Scrip?
Scrip is sold Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. at the counter in the courtyard. On Sunday mornings scrip is sold in between church services in the school office.
Download the scrip order form and bring it to the scrip counter. Most of the scrip listed on the form is carried in inventory and can be purchased at the counter. Some scrip (indicated with asterisks) needs to be pre-ordered which can take from 1-2 weeks to obtain. We accept cash and checks made out to ASLS Scrip.
Scrip certificates are great gifts for Christmas or birthdays for family and friends around the country!
