As I am sure you have seen throughout the country, we have a lot of job openings that we are struggling to fill. Below is an email we sent to retirees that had emails listed on file. Would you be willing to post something on the PLSAS retiree page as well? Any help would be greatly appreciated!


 Thank you!!

Subject: PLSAS Retirees! Want to Rejoin the Team?


 Are you looking for a way to reconnect with your students....to stay active for a couple of hours a day?  Do you miss your school community and would like to come back in a different role?


 Our child nutrition department has a variety of openings that you may be interested in!  Duties include preparing cold and hot food for the students, serving students, and general cleaning.  In child nutrition, we believe that part of our role in nourishing bodies is to help students create lifelong eating habits.  To that end, we have eliminated high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, and colors, and highly processed foods from our main menus. We believe that it is important to teach kids where food comes from so we also have a farm-to-school program, school gardens, and do as much learning in the lunchroom activities as we can.


Child nutrition subs:


Wages starting at $15.99/hr and work when you are able.  The day usually starts between 9-10am and goes until 2pm.  You may be called on the day needed, but also could be scheduled for future dates.


Child nutrition permanent positions:


Wages start at $16.50/hr and are student days only.  You will receive paid sick time and also paid personal days!


 Want to rejoin the PLSAS Team? Click here to apply for the child nutrition openings or another opening in the district.
