BABYSITTER LIST

Occasionally TLS and TLCC get inquiries for babysitters from our younger, newer TLS and TLCC families, and sometimes from the Trinity congregation. We have had a list in the past, but it needs some updating. If you are interested in adding your babysitter to our updated list, please click into the form below. Thank you!

Babysitter List

$110.50

$110.50 is the amount needed in your student's lunch account to take hot lunch each day for the rest of the year ( April 4th - May 22nd and does not include extra portions, any current negative balance, or any field trips). Do you know what your student's lunch balance is? Check it out via PowerSchool. Get a check or cash into the school office soon.


Reminder - The Board of Education adopted a policy that when a student’s lunch account becomes negative $20, that student will not be allowed to select the #1 entrée for lunch. However #2, PBJ, and #3, Salad Bar, will still be lunch options for the student.


The staff salaries and food expenses are paid for solely by the funds collected for lunch. Any amounts in your student's lunch accounts that do not get used this year, will roll over into the next school year. You can monitor you students lunch balance and receive email alerts at a threshold of your choosing via Power School. Thank you for keeping positive balances in your student's lunch account!
