Midland Trail Elementary School
Parent Teacher Conferences!
As a building, our goal is to meet with 100% of our parents each Fall and Spring during conference week. This gives classroom teachers, intervention teams, and special services the opportunity to share the success of each student and set goals for the remainder of the school year.
We are available for conferences in person, by phone, or through ZOOM! If you need to change a conference appointment, please get with your child(rens) teacher. We look forward to see our the week of February 13th.
KC Spirit Week!
Look for more information on our Facebook page and from you child's teacher for a Chiefs Spirit Week!!!
Valentine's Day @ MTE
Classroom teachers will have Valentine's Day activities and a party for students. Please get with your teacher to find out about sending treats or volunteering to help. As a REMINDER: All adults entering the building must have a valid state ID. This is district policy. For classroom parties, we ask that no more than 2 adults attend per child attend classroom parties.
Celebrating a Birthday?
If your student wishes to celebrate a birthday at school, please get with the classroom teacher before treats are sent. Treats must be commercially made and packaged. No adults or guests will be sent to classrooms. Treats will be left in the office and delivered to the classroom at party time. Thank you.

Join PTA! Our PTA needs YOU! We need more support in order to keep PTA moving forward at Midland Trail. The commitment is small. We meet once a month, after school, for 30-45 minutes. We plan a few activities each year: Back To School, Classroom Parties, Teacher Treats, Candy Sales, and our biggest event is the MTE Carnival. We cannot do this without more support. Please consider joining PTA and offering to help out once a month.
Low Lunch Account Balance!
Students will begin receiving low account balance notices from food services. If you have not signed up for Free/Reduced Lunch, you may click the link below and apply.
There is an important change coming to school meals for the upcoming 22 – 23 school year. The USDA program that has provided free school meals to all students during the COVID-19 pandemic is ending on June 30th.
We encourage you to complete the free/reduced meal application for the 22 – 23 school year as you may be eligible to continue receiving the free meal benefit.
Families who receive benefits through SNAP, TANF, or the foster care system are already enrolled in the free school meal benefits and do not need to submit an application
The free meals, which are safe, nutritious, and delicious, help extend family food budgets too.
For more information, contact Megan Rabun, Food Services Coordinator, at (913) 288-4141.
TUSD Transportation ~ Bus Cards
Bus Rider Families,
As you are aware, our transportation department utilizes Traversa Ride 360 for our bus tracking platform. This technology allows parents/guardians to see information about their student's route, including the times that their student gets on and off the bus.
In order for this platform to work correctly, students are issued a bus card that they must scan when they get on and off the bus. Unfortunately, students are reporting losing their bus card or leaving it at home. This causes disruptions and delays to our transportation routes and also creates a safety issue when we are unable to verify when students get on and off the bus.
Students have been made aware of the expectation that they have their bus card on them when riding the bus. Starting second quarter, students who do not have their bus card on them when riding the bus will be given three chances before being referred to an administrator as they would for any bus discipline issue.
Please talk with your student about this expectation and help them make a plan to ensure that they always have their bus card on them while riding the bus. If your child does not have a bus card, please have them notify their school secretary.
If you are not familiar with Traversa Ride 360, you can find more information here: https://www.turnerusd202.org/departments/transportation
Thank you for your help in this matter.
