Mustang Trails Families, Today we kicked off our virtual fundraiser! Your child should bring home a 1 page guide to online sales. All money is collected online and all items are shipped directly to the person purchasing. We cannot ship frozen items such as pre-made cookie dough. There are non frozen cookie dough options to purchase. We are also accepting online donations. Students will receive prizes from sales. These prizes will be delivered to your child at school. All money made from our PTSO fundraiser will be used to purchase items for students and teachers during the 20/21 school year. Thank you for your support, Mustang Trails Elementary

Trails Safety Plan 20-21

Hello Trails Families,

Welcome to the 20-21 school year!  We hope you are doing well and we hope we get to see you soon! This has been and continues to be a challenging time for all of us.  Over the last months, we have worked diligently to study the guidance from national, state, and local officials, as well as seeking input from parents and stakeholders. We have used this information to create our district Health/Safety Plan. Once this was approved at the district level, we moved forward with creating a plan that was specific to our site. 

We have done our best to use a common-sense approach for the development of our Trails site plan for our traditional school model. Keeping our students and staff as safe as possible is our top priority. Our plan addresses all areas of the building and our daily activities from arrival to dismissal. Even if you do not agree with every point in our plan, we hope you know that we care deeply about your child.  Every decision was carefully thought out with input from our building leaders. Decisions were made based on space, building layout, class size, and what was best for students and staff. Details in our plan may change over time depending on what is changing around us, but we will always make the best decisions we can. Our Mustang Trails Site Plan can be found here Trails -Health and Safety FAQS Elementary (1).pdf  Everyone has their own opinions and concerns about returning to traditional school. If this model is not comfortable to you, please check out our district virtual options found at http://www.mustangps.org/MORSEY.aspx . The district has worked hard to come up with an option for everyone. 

Even though this is not a typical year and will be different than any year we have ever had, we will provide a high-quality education for our students. We will build relationships, have fun, be creative, and make memories to last a lifetime. We will take this experience and not only make the best of it but will learn and grow through it. Our theme this year is #BETTERTOGETHER.  We can always do BETTER when we work TOGETHER. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue this journey together.  Our students and families are what makes Trails a great place to learn and grow!

Christina Holland
