Our mission is to provide a high-quality, comprehensive, and meaningful education for all students. Each student will be treated as an individual, given the tools to be a lifelong learner, and taught to function as a member of a group and as a productive member of society.

Trailside Elementary School’s vision is to promote collaboration between school and community so that students are empowered to achieve academic excellence and succeed in a globally changing world.

Our faculty will use our professional learning communities to examine our data to help inform our goals for Language Arts, STEM, and positive student supports. We will also work collaboratively with our school Community Council to align our goals.

Important update from Health Department

Most of you are aware of the Pertussis Outbreak currently affecting our community. The Summit County Health Department appreciates the efforts of parents, local physicians, and school district employees (especially the school nurses) for their efforts to protect the unvaccinated children in our community and our vulnerable populations, including infants.

The Summit County Health Department tracks all confirmed cases of Pertussis and where the case attends school and/or daycare. The number and distribution of confirmed cases in the Trailside Elementary School has reached the level for the Health Department to enforce the Utah School Vaccine Exemption Rule, and exclude children who have an exemption to a pertussis containing vaccine.

The parents of these children are currently being notified to pick up their child from school. There are two options concerning their child(ren) returning to school:

Stay out of school for 21 days after the last confirmed case of Pertussis is diagnosed.
Complete a course of antibiotics, typically a 5 day course of Z-Pack, and return to school after antibiotics are complete.

Please contact the Summit County Health Department for questions.

Thank you,

Carolyn Rose, RN, MPH
Nursing Director

Parking Lot Procedures for Drop-off and Pick-up

Our goal is to move vehicles through the procedure quickly, but not at the expense of safety. It will take several minutes to get in and out of our parking lot, and it all moves more quickly when everyone follows the procedures.

Please remember that at any time, and especially before and after school, there may be children in the parking lot. Drive slowly and without distractions.

Please use the drop off lane. Children may enter and exit vehicles at the curb where there is a double red lane. Please have them use the passenger side of the car only. There will be no drop-off or pick-up from the driving lane. If you choose to park in the parking lot and walk your children, cross only at the crosswalks. Please model proper behavior for our children.

Due to the presence of busses entering and exiting, we cannot allow students to be dropped-off or picked-up in the bus/faculty parking area.

Thank you for your patience and courtesy in what can easily become a frustrating task.

We evaluate standardized testing results, help formulate the school improvement plan, make decisions regarding LAND Trust funds, and provide oversight in a number of other ways. SCC consists of parents, teachers, and the principal. We meet monthly from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. If you're interested in serving our school community, this is a way to have significant impact with a relatively small time commitment. Each year we elect four new parent members to our School Community Council. Each parent elected serves for two years. The elections will be held during August registration. If you are interested in submitting your name for this upcoming election, and you will have a student at EHMS for the next two years, please fill out the section below and attach a short bio (200 words or less) and return to school by June 6th.
