Employee Services

Welcome to Employee Services

This page contains useful information for district employees and those interested in becoming part of the Lake Shore family, and will be updated regularly with important information for employees during the school closure.  

COVID-19 Closure - Employee Compensation Information 

During the state mandated school closure, please note the following regarding compensation:  

  • Effective 3/23/20 and until further notice AFSCME staff must record hours that they work onsite on this timesheet:  Onsite Timesheet for Custodians, M & O, and Food Service. This timesheet is for hours worked onsite from April 4, 2020 through April 17, 2020. 
  • Custodians, M & O, and Food Service will be paid straight time for the remaining hours on their schedule.  
  • Effective 3/23/20 - LSFSS staff will be paid their posted hours.  No time sheet is required.  You will receive an email and be asked to confirm your hours.   
  • Teachers, administration, admin support, admin non-unit, and Adult & Community Education employees will be compensated as usual.  No additional action is needed on your part.   
  • Staff employed through EduStaff who are in long term and district/building sub assignments, will continue to be compensated while buildings are closed.  EduStaff subs in long term assignments should work on facilitating online learning for their students, and district/building subs should remain in contact with their building administrators to determine how they can be of support during the closure.  
  • All staff who are on leave, will continue under the terms of their existing leave until it expires.  If your leave is unpaid, being covered using banked days, central sick, etc., this will continue.  When the leave ends, and the employee is released to return to work, regular compensation will resume. 

Please email George Lewis (glewis@lsps.org), or Misty Blaesing (mblaesing@lsps.org) if you have questions or need assistance.
