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.
