Get Involved!

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.

Join PTA for $8

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.

If you are not familiar with Traversa Ride 360, you can find more information here: https://www.turnerusd202.org/departments/transportation

Student/Family Changes in Informaiton

Make sure that each student has updated phone numbers, home address, and emergency contact information in Infinite Campus.
