General Information about School Fees and Fee Waivers

  • Required Fees: these fees are assessed to all students and cover the costs of textbooks, lab supplies, student activities, etc.
  • Optional Fees: these fees are charged only to students that participate in certain programs or classes and cover the specific costs associated with those classes. Yearbooks purchases are available under optional fees.
  • Donations: You are welcome to make donations to the school - parent donations often help fund supplies and activities for students as well as providing for school improvements.
  • Extra-Curricular Fees: these are not paid at registration, but will be paid if/when your student begins participation in an extra-curricular activity; this includes cross country, golf, tennis, basketball, wrestling, track, etc.

Fee Waivers: if you think you may qualify for a fee waiver, you must apply in person at the school. Verification of income is required.

  • Utah law permits the charging of fees in grades seven through twelve. This means that your student may be charged fees for school materials, supplies, activities and programs. 
  • If your student is eligible based on income verification or receives SSI payments (qualified child with disabilities), or if you are receiving TANF (Horizon Card - currently qualified for financial assistance or food stamps) or the student was placed in your home by the state as a foster child, the school will waive fees (meaning that you will not be required to pay the student fees). 
  • If you are having a financial emergency caused by job loss, major illness, or other substantial loss of income beyond your control, your child might be eligible for a fee waiver even if other eligibility criteria are not met. You may apply for fee waivers by submitting the Fee Waiver Application (Grades 7-12) to an administrator at MJHS.
