"What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead."

SchoolCash: Below are directions on how to create your account for SchoolCash online. We often have people asking if they have paid for a yearbook, fieldtrip, etc. This program will enable to you to keep track of purchases as well as provide receipts. We will also be having clubs paid through this program as well. Please create your account today.


Trailside Middle School is thrilled to announce the return of our after school clubs!

Activities will begin the week of October 11th. Each club will consist of six meetings. Some clubs do not meet for six consecutive weeks. Please see the dates listed below. The cost is $80.00 per student per club unless otherwise indicated. Students may register for multiple clubs but it is not recommended to register for multiple clubs on the same meeting day, as this would cause them to miss meetings.

Clubs start immediately after school and end at 4:40. Activity buses are available for students who qualify for bus transportation to and from school. If a student is within walking distance, they may walk home with parental permission. Activity Bus Information will be shared out before clubs start. Please note, Activity Buses stop at central locations, not the same stop as AM and PM buses. Students do typically have to walk farther. Car riders must be picked up in one of the car loops by 4:45 pm. Please do not drive into the bus loop.

PAYMENT INFORMATION: An option to pay online is available (an email with payment instructions will be sent out to all registered families during the week of October 3rd), or checks should be made payable to Trailside Middle School and should be remitted by your student to their respective house secretary. Payments for clubs must be made in full prior to the start of the club. There will be no refunds once a child is placed into a club. Financial Assistance is available if needed. Please contact Lisa Figueroa (Lisa.Figueroa@lcps.org) for information.

MAKE-UP POLICY: After-school clubs will not be held if Loudoun County Public Schools are closed. Every effort will be made to schedule a make-up class.

We reserve the right to remove, for the remainder of the session, any student whose inappropriate behavior disrupts the program. No refund will be given.

REMINDERS FROM THE SCHOOL HEALTH CLINIC: School-Sponsored After-School Activities and Sports If your child has diabetes, an epinephrine auto-injector, an inhaler, or other emergency medication at school, please notify the teacher/sponsor that your child has the health concern. Also, notify the health clinic assistant/nurse 1-2 weeks prior to the event. The clinic is closed after dismissal and the nurse/health clinic assistant is not in the building. Arrangements need to be made to have medication available and to train staff. It is strongly suggested that middle and high school students carry their own inhaler and/or epinephrine auto-injector for quick access to medication. For students to carry an inhaler, the physician must complete and sign the “Asthma Action Plan,” form 11:14, giving his/her permission for the student to carry the inhaler, and the parent and student must sign the “Parent/Student Agreement for Permission to Carry an Inhaler,” form 11:14b. For students with an epinephrine auto-injector, the physician will need to sign the form 11:10 and the parent and student will need to sign form 11:10c under “Agreement for Permission to Self-Administer and/or Carry Epinephrine.” For students with diabetes to carry any of their medical supplies, the diabetes form, Part 4: “Permission to Self-Carry and Self-Administer Diabetes Care,” needs to be signed by the physician, parent and student.

Together in Education

Harris Teeter’s Together In Education program gives schools a chance to earn funds when you link your VIC card and shop Harris Teeter brands.

Harris Teeter has donated over $32.4 million to Together In Education schools since 1998! When you shop Harris Teeter brands, a percentage of your purchase is donated to the school that your VIC card is linked to.

There are NO LIMITS to how much a school can earn!

Any customer with a VIC card can link their card to a school. Customers can link up to five (5) schools to their account. The more people that connect their loyalty cards to a school, the higher the earning potential for a school.
