As a parent and principal, my top priority is providing the best education possible in a nurturing environment for our students. I encourage you to explore our website and access the individual links to learn more about our facility, staff, programs, curriculum, activities, partnerships and other informative topics. We have provided e-mail addresses for all staff in order to be readily accessible and responsive to your concerns.

We want the parents and guardians of our students, like the students themselves, to feel at home at Red Trail Elementary School. It is important that our students feel proud of who they are and believe that they can accomplish anything they desire.
