• What's Howling at Trailside?

  • From the Principal

    October 28, 2020


    Dear Trailside Families,


    Below you are going to find a few links you will want to check out.  First, I have a video of me explaining some of the requirements for starting back face to face on November 16th for our Preschool through 2nd-grade students.  I review the key points of the procedures we have in place and I also provide you with information pertaining to our full document regarding returning to school in the face to face setting.  I realize most of my conversation is about PreK-2nd grade, but it also pertains to our 3-6 grade students.  These documents will be used and refined for when all students are back in school. 


    I would ask that you do the following:

    1. Watch the video
    2. Look at the bullet pointed list of items LINK
    3. If you want more information about our smart start document with all the detailed procedures we have in place, it is at this LINK or you can click the link at the bottom of the bullet point list of items above.


    I also want to remind all Preschool through 2nd grade families of the survey that was sent out to you to help us plan for the return to face to face instruction on November 16th.  Please complete that survey and also let your classroom teacher know how your child will be getting home after school.  This information will help us prepare for dismissal at 3:00 each day. 


    The link to the survey for Preschool – 2nd grade parents is HERE, and it closes on November 3rd.


    Thank you all for providing us with the information we need to plan and prepare for the return to face to face instruction.  We know that the procedures we have in place may need adjustments based on students, staff and family needs. I ask that you are patient as we work through this re-entry and share your thoughts, concerns and ideas so we can best serve the community and students.


    I know you have a tough decision to make which is why I wanted to get this information to you sooner than later.  If you are undecided, please watch this video to hear more about ASDVirtual changes and review the face to face guidelines above to help you make your decision. Please let me, the office or your teacher know if you have any questions. 


    I hope you have a great day, I look forward to having students back in the building learning from our team of amazing educators.
