Vision Screening for Trailside Elementary

Vision screenings for Trailside Elementary students will be between October 20th-22nd and they will be conducted by the school nurses. If a student does not pass the screening after several attempts on different days, a letter will be sent to parents recommending an evaluation by an eye doctor. If you do not want your student vision screened, please send a note to your student's teacher before the screening dates!

For questions please call Anne Alexander RN at 645-5680 ext. 4614. Thank you!!

If you have not made an appointment by October 1st, teachers will pick a time for you and notify you in a take-home note just prior to the conference period.

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.

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.


Dual Language Immersion

We have an excellent elementary DLI program and we need to build on this into the Middle and High School. We have excellent traditional elementary and secondary programs.
