    Happy New Year Trailside


    January always brings me to a time in which I reflect back on the year and make some plans for the new year. I must say that 2020 was one that I never thought I would see as an educator. 2020 made me step out of my comfort zone and cause me to learn and step into the unknown. I am proud to be a part of the Trailside community as everyone has been flexible, willing to learn new things, and jumped into 2020 with both feet ready to do what needed to be done to teach students. It has really been an amazing year of learning.


    Personally, I had the goal to get a family picture before both my kids were out of the house. One would think that is an easy task, but it always seemed to get put off as schedules couldn’t match. I thought I would share a family photo with everyone as I am proud to say we accomplished it. Next year the kids will go out into the big world and follow their dreams!

    We have one more semester of school left this year, two quarters, or 18 weeks. This school year has been full of ups and downs but we are definitely ready to have kids in the halls of Trailside again. While zoom has been positive, school is just not the same without the giggles, smiles, and waves from kids each day.


    Dr. Bishop, ASD’s Superintendent, has announced that face to face instruction for students in Preschool through 2nd grade will begin on January 19th, 2021. A return date for students in grades 3 thru 6 has not been announced. Prior to January 19th, your child’s teacher will be sending information related to our return to each

    family. Where students will meet their teacher outside of the building, pictures of the classroom and information specific to the classroom will be included.

     School hours have changed. The school day will be from 9:30-3:00. Please don’t drop off students prior to 9:20 when we will let them in the building. The Trailside re-entry plan quick look can be found by clicking HERE. When students are back, please know we will be making changes as needed to our plan to meet the student needs within the school. At the bottom of the bulleted list of information is the link to our full re-entry plan.


    Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I am here to help and support all of you throughout every school year!
