From the Principal
Greetings Trailside Families;
It is hard to believe that we are over halfway through the first quarter of the school year. I can't believe the amazing fall weather we have been able to experience. The colors have been bright and the brisk days are here. Encourage your child to check lost and found once in a while if they are missing anything. Also, please make sure your children have warm clothes, as we will be heading out to recess at all temperatures.
There is an in-service day for the teachers on October 18th so that means the students do not have school on that day.
October News you can Use
We are excited to have the PTA putting on the Fall Festival for our community. I am so happy to be a part of this. It is going to be my first Fall Festival at Trailside. I encourage your family to dress up and enjoy the time with the Trailside community. I hope to see you on October 25, 2019, at 5:30-8:00
Parent-teacher conferences are also this month. October 23rd and 24th will be 1/2 days of school. Students get released at 12:30 and then teachers hold parent-teacher conferences in the afternoon and one evening. Please click on the link below to sign up for conferences with your child's teacher online...
There is no school for students on the 25th of October due to Parent-Teacher Conferences.
Throughout the next month, the State will be calculating our average daily attendance, which will be used as a primary consideration for education funding for next year.
Trailside would like to make sure we maximize our ability to have funding that is needed to educate our students. Please work to have your child at school throughout this count period. I understand that things come up and illnesses happen. Please just be aware of the count period for the month of October.As always, it is my pleasure to work with the Trailside Community in all areas of the school. If you have questions, ideas or concerns please don't hesitate to contact the office. We are here to help!

Student Council has there Elections coming up!
Good luck to all the students running for office!
- If you are headed out of town on vacation please remember to notify your student's teacher and the office via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Late/Tardy/Sick Please call the office 742-5500 to let us know your student will be out
Message from Mrs. Donaldson in the officeA small change to the way we excuse vacations.You will see a "P" for excused Pre-Arranged Absence instead of "E", ignore any notes of unexcused when you see "P".The "P" lets us know the student was on vacation not sick.Also, please wait a few minutes to see if your children or teacher leave a message when calling you instead of calling the school right away.All phone calls out show the main office number and the office does not know why your child or teacher is calling and we are trying not to interrupt classrooms during the day.
