Parents will be billed by TES at conclusion of course. The first meeting will be on 9/19 and will meet for 5 consecutive Tuesdays (9/19-10/17).

A note from Mrs. McLain in the Front Office:
If a student has not been picked up prior to 3:15 pm, they will automatically be taken to Extended Day. The front office does not need to be notified if you are running late and your children needs to go to Extended Day.
As per the handbook, page 20 " Trinity strongly urges parents NOT to bring "fast food" lunches for their children, unless there is an emergency. Children should bring a sack lunch or purchase lunch." The front office will be happy to give your child an "emergency lunch" if needed.
