  • Summer Assignments

    Trinity teachers post summer assignments so that incoming students can best prepare for the year.  All assignments will be posted to the website in early June.

    Students, please complete all summer assignments by the first day of classes.
  • Concussion Baseline Testing

    All Trinity student athletes are required to complete an online Concussion Baseline Test prior to their first practice in August. Please review the XLNTBrain Overview as well as the Steps for Concussion Baseline Testing with XLNT Brain. Contact Athletic Trainer Mark Hall (markhall@trinityes.org) with questions or visit the Athletic Performance and Training page of the website for more details. 
     
  • Receiving email from Trinity

    Parents should expect to receive detailed eNews blasts by email on a monthly basis. To ensure that you continue to receive important notifications, please take a moment to add the email address trinitynews@trinityes.org to your address book or contact list.

  • Purchasing Textbooks

    At this time, books are not sold from the Titan Closet. 

    The Trinity Parents Association sponsors a Used Textbook Sale in late summer. A portion of the proceeds goes directly to supporting school needs.

    You may purchase new books online through the MBS Direct online bookstore: 
    1. Select Order Your Materials from the menu in the upper right

    2. Check your course(s)

    3. Scroll down to the bottom and click View Your Materials
    If you have questions about the online bookstore, please contact francisdecker@trinityes.org.
  • Optional Lunch Delivery Program

    Families who wish to purchase lunch through the school can select from a limited number of catered options and preorder four weeks at a time by completing and returning a PDF form and check by mail or hand-delivery to the Main Office.

    Ordering options for fall 2021 will be posted to this page in midsummer. 
  • Parking and Drop-off Guidelines

    Drop-off, pick-up and parking guidelines
    In order to provide for efficient and safe traffic flow to and from campus, parents and students are asked to arrive on campus from either Cherokee Road or Wainfleet Drive depending upon the student’s grade level. This pattern is intended to minimize wait time and the need to stop traffic entering campus for those vehicles exiting campus. It is crucial — both to the timeliness of the process and for the safety of all — that all drivers follow the instructions of the traffic attendants. As always, the safety of all of our community members — parents and students, faculty and staff, drivers and pedestrians — is our highest priority, and we need your help to ensure it.
  • Daily Schedule & Late-Start Monday

    The daily academic schedule at Trinity follows an eight-day rotation: eight traditional class periods are spread out over eight instructional days, then the rotation begins again. Over those eight days, each course meets six times—with one longer period per day that a teacher may use for activities, science labs, projects or group work. A rotational schedule is not a block schedule, which has a much lower frequency of student/teacher contact. An eight-day rotational schedule gives students broader course selection while maintaining a high degree of frequency of teacher/student contact.

    The first day of school (Tuesday) will follow a modified "DAY 1" schedule. The full-day Standard Rotation of classes will begin on Wednesday, August 18 with "DAY 2;" Thursday, August 29 will be "DAY 3;" etc.

    Late-Start Monday
    Every Monday, however, Trinity follows the "Late-Start Monday" schedule, which means students should arrive to Trinity for Morning Meeting at 8:45 a.m., and will be dismissed at 3:15 p.m.

     
  • Dress Code and Approved Trinity Clothing

    The boundaries of Trinity’s dress standard are designed to promote a learning environment and remind students that they are all part of a unified community. The standard allows students the opportunity to express themselves through their dress, but it does not permit any clothing deemed inappropriate. All clothing must be clean, neat, in good condition and worn for the purpose and in the manner for which it was designed.

    Please review with your students the full, detailed Standard of Dress for 2010-21 (PDF). All dress code requirements apply to virtual classrooms as well

    The Titan Closet is the ONLY approved merchant for Trinity apparel

    Parents, please be aware that Trinity does NOT have an online school store. The only merchant that produces and sells official, approved Trinity gear is the Titan Closet, located here on campus in the Estes Athletic Center. Any merchandise or apparel purchased online is not coming from a licensed or approved source, and Trinity will not receive any proceeds from purchases made online. Please note also that official Trinity apparel (including team and club apparel) produced in coordination with the Titan Closet is the only kind of “Trinity tee-shirt” considered an acceptable part of the school’s dress code.

    As always, the Titan Closet is stocked full of attractive and school-approved apparel, with new merchandise and designs added seasonally. Please stop in, visit the store’s web page or contact store manager Wendy Williams (wendywilliams@trinityes.org) to learn more.
