We are pleased to announce our Citizens of the Month for October.

These students have worked hard all month to uphold the values of our RO Constitution.

Our school community is pROud of these students and their commitment to RO.

RO Security Protocol

In order to maintain a safe and secure environment for our students and staff, all visitors need to enter through the main doors when school is in session. No staff or visitors will be permitted through the Richardson doors - only the main office.

In addition, all visitors are required to bring their driver's license or state issued identification to receive a visitor badge while in the building. No adult is let into the building without having their ID scanned through our system and cleared.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Easton Public School School Security Officer

EPS is pleased to welcome Easton Police Officer Chris Aker as our full time SRO for EPS. Chris will be a visible and continual presence at all of our schools. EPS and EPD are working to grow our partnership and utilize Office Aker not only for additional security but also to grow positive relationships with students, families and staff. You will see our SRO invited to school events, student presentations and other opportunities to enhance our relationship in a positive manner. Our mission is for students, staff and community members to see the SRO as contributing to a positive school climate.

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.
