Welcome to Trailside Elementary School.

COVID-19 Resources

The district is posting frequent updates on COVID-19 on its homepage at pcschools.us, along with important resources from the Utah Department of Health and Summit County Health Department.

Home Learning Packets

Park City School District has prepared Learning Packets for K-5 students to ensure continuous learning at home. Daily learning activities should engage students for 4 hours per day. View the Home Learning Packets here.

El Distrito Escolar de Park City ha preparado Paquetes de Aprendizaje para estudiantes de K-5 para asegurar un aprendizaje continuo en el hogar. Las actividades de aprendizaje diarias deben involucrar a los estudiantes durante 4 horas por día. Vea los paquetes de aprendizaje en casa aquí.

Laptop Repair Center

The Technology Department will be opening a computer repair center at McPolin Elementary starting on Monday, March 30.

This repair center will be available to help with hardware issues for all students and staff.

It will be open weekly on the following schedule:

Monday: 9 am – 11 am and 12 pm – 2 pm

Thursday: 9 am – 11 am and 12 pm – 2 pm

Closed for Spring Break April 6 – April 10th

The repair center will only have loaner laptops, and for the foreseeable future we will not be doing any hardware repairs. Students and faculty will be issued a freshly imaged loaner laptop. For this reason, it is critical to have your files backed up, or stored on Google Drive.

Student Laptop Connectivity Issue (computer not getting correct time)

The primary issue we are seeing with elementary laptops is that if they were not charged when they got home, the correct time will not sync using the home wifi network. To solve this issue:

  • Come back to any district school with the laptop, park outside, and just reboot the computer.
  • Once the computer is reconnected to the school wifi (PCSD-Secure 19/20), the time issue will be corrected.
  • As long as the computer stays charged at home, they should not have the problem again so it is important to keep the laptop charged.

Communication During School Dismissal

During this period of at-home learning, email and texts to parents will be the primary method of school communication.  Due to increased email load, please be patient and allow 48 hours for teachers and staff to respond to email.

Durante este período de aprendizaje en el hogar, el correo electrónico y los mensajes de texto a los padres serán el método principal de comunicación escolar. Debido al aumento de la carga de correos electrónicos, tenga paciencia y espere 48 horas para que los maestros y el personal respondan al correo electrónico.

TSES News and Information

Parking Lot Procedures for Pick Up and Drop Off

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 buses 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.
