Library News

All students participate in library so we thought it was important to give families some insight and guidance as to how our library works.

Students are able to check out two books for a period of two weeks. In most cases, books can be renewed for another 2 weeks as long as there are no other students waiting for a particular book.

If a student has any overdue books, they will not be permitted to check out other books until the overdue book(s) is/are returned.

Every Monday our Librarian generates a report for any students who have overdue or missing books. These reports are given to the student's homeroom teacher for the student to bring home to their family.

If a student has lost or damaged a book, we ask that you kindly replace the book, The report shows the price of the book and in most cases, the book may be purchased from Amazon for a lower cost.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our Librarian, Elaine Reasoner

Student Activity Fee

In order to help defray/cover the costs of transportation and entrance/registration fees for enrichment activities, the Easton Public School system has been collecting activity fees. Because of these fees, our district is also able to send our students to Sheep Pasture/NRT for enriching outdoor learning throughout the year. It is a valuable and unique learning opportunity for our students.

The elementary fee structure is $45.00 for grades 1-6.

For your convenience, payment can be made through the following website: If you are only able to pay by check, please make the check payable to Easton Public Schools and in the memo, please indicate it is for the student activity fee and include your child’s name. We do not accept any cash payments. Please ensure you do not pay more than once. Unfortunately, the system does not prevent this.

Please do NOT use the MySchoolBucks app. It is not functioning properly at this time.

Please note: Students who are on free/reduced lunch are exempt from this fee.
