After surveying many of their families and realizing there are financial hardships among them, officials at the Ross School in East Hampton have made a pitch to the school's wider community for donations to help those families keep their kids in school.

"The pandemic, with the stay-at-home response, has made it difficult for families to keep their jobs or predict their income levels for the coming year," Bill O'Hearn, the head of school, said in an announcement.

Those wishing to help can visit the school's donation website,, and select "Emergency Fund" to make a contribution by Aug. 15.

"I want to thank you for considering helping other Ross families in need," Mr. O'Hearn said. "This has been an unprecedented and challenging time for everyone."
