THIS SUNDAY - TLS 3K - 8th GRADES SING AT AREA CONGREGATIONS
TEACHER CALL UPDATES - CALL MEETING ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13TH
After much prayerful consideration, Mr. Karl Bauer, who we called for 5th Grade Homeroom and Upper Grade Music, has returned our call and will continue to serve at St. Paul First LS in North Hollywood, CA.
At the Call Meeting on Sunday, March 3rd, the Voters decided NOT to call anyone and ask for a new list. There will be a meeting on Wednesday, March 13th after the 6:30 p.m. Lent Service in the Fellowship Hall to call a teacher for 5th Grade Homeroom and Upper Grade Music, and a teacher for 7th Grade Homeroom and Athletic Director.
IMPORTANT - Before and After School Policy
AS STATED DIRECTLY FROM THE HANDBOOK ...
School office hours: 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM (Monday - Friday)
Kindergarten through Grade 8: 8:25 AM-3:35 PM (Now 3:40 PM to make up weather days)
Pre-Kindergarten: 8:25 AM-11:30 AM and 12:30 PM-3:35 PM
School doors open at 8:15 AM. All children are to go directly to their respective classrooms. All children arriving before 8:15 AM or staying after 3:45 PM will be sent to the Extended Hours Program (EHP).
EXTENDED HOURS PROGRAM (262)844-1962
This program provides adult supervision for all children arriving between 7:00- 8:10 AM and staying after 3:45 PM. Adult supervision of all children on our campus meets the liability needs of our insurance carrier. The school’s cell phone policy (see below) also applies while the children are in the Extended Care Program (EHP). Parents are billed in quarter hour increments. All children must be picked up by 6:00 PM. Additional fees will be applied if children are not picked up by 6:00 PM.
$160.25 is the amount needed in your student's lunch account to take hot lunch each day for the rest of the year ( March 7th - 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!
YEARBOOK ORDERS - DUE NOW!!! DO NOT WAIT!!!!
PLAN NOW TO GET THESE RETURNED IMMEDIATELY!
The cost of each Yearbook is $10. You may pay by cash or by check payable to TLS.

There will be NO Yearbook orders accepted after the cut off date on the paper form.
