Financial Assistance Form

  • The Financial Assistance Form is available to assist families during times of financial hardship. ETHS encourages all families to complete and submit this form annually. 

    Students who live in eligible households qualify for a multitude of discounts including breakfast, lunch and an after-school dinner for free or at a reduced cost, and additionally, a waiver for their annual school fees. Filling out this form is the only way to receive a reduction in annual school fees. Even if a student is on off-campus placement, you should apply for this program if you believe you qualify.

    The Financial Assistance Form will be available online beginning July 17, 2024, and must be submitted by August 6, 2024.

    This is a household application, so please submit only one (1) application per entire family/household and list all high school-age students in the household on one application. 

    NOTE: A student who receives benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (SNAP or TANF) is automatically eligible, eligible households that do not need to complete the meal application. The email notification will also include a link to view your student’s status online.

Fee Waivers

  • Fee Payments and Deadlines

    If your child(ren) is eligible, the full annual school fees will be waived and you will only be responsible for paying an activity fee of $25.00 per student. You may apply at any time without penalty after the form is open, but school fee waivers will be prorated based on the date you submit your application.

    Full payment of annual school fees is expected and due by the August 6, 2024, the payment deadline. A $25.00 activity fee is due by the August 6, 2024, payment deadline for each student that is eligible for free/reduced price meals or that receives TANF/SNAP benefits. 

    A $30 late fee will be added to any payment received after the August fee payment deadline. Any student household that completes the Household Incentive form by the August application deadline will not be assessed a late fee, whether or not the application is approved.

    Eligibility in one year does not guarantee future fee waiver eligibility; therefore, the Financial Assistance Form must be completed annually, or a TANF/SNAP eligibility certificate must be received, to determine if a family is eligible for a fee waiver. Any fees accumulated from past school years are still owed.

    If you need further information concerning waiver of school fees, please contact the Student Accounts Office at (847) 424-7110.
