● HCPSS staff can be vendors but have to cover the time from their school contract
hours to when the program starts. Staff members can not make money during their
contractual hours. This program is completely separate from Lisbon Elementary
and is run through the PTA as vendors. On checks/payment “Lisbon” can’t be in
the memo line, program name should be used. PTA will not be held liable if staff
member violates this policy.
● Children shouldn’t bring money/cash to give to an outside vendor. Payment needs
to be done via check, venmo etc. The vendor should provide an address to send
payment to if needed. All payment must go to Ms Giro via Venmo or outside of
school and has nothing to do with Lisbon Elementary or PTA and this is the same
for every vendor.
