School Office Information
School office information- Naches Trail Elementary office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. If you would like to contact a member of our staff outside of these hours, please call the school at 253-800-8700 and leave a message for that person on the office answering machine.
Students will not be allowed to change their normal end-of-day routine without a note or phone call from the parent or guardian before 2:30 p.m. The office staff are busy with end-of-day routines and cannot always reach the teacher/student in time to relay dismissal changes after that time. We will not pull students off buses at dismissal time.
If you need to contact a teacher during the school day, the best way is by sending an email. If you call the school, you will be transferred to the teacher’s voicemail. This helps avoid disruptions to the learning environment.

Expectations and Student Management
Systems of positive supports- Naches Trail subscribes to a Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework. PBIS is a multi-tiered behavioral framework with a continuum of support for improving academic and behavioral outcomes.
Our purpose is to enhance academic and social emotional learning by creating a positive learning environment. Naches Trail staff will teach, model, reinforce, and recognize the positive behaviors of all students by being consistent with our expectations, language, and follow-through.
School-wide expectations- The Big 3!
- Be Responsible: we take ownership over all of our actions, both positive and negative
- Be Respectful: we use appropriate words and demonstrate appropriate actions
- Be Ready to Learn: we enter school with an open mind in order to understand new concepts
Common area expectations- The following expectations are to serve as a guide for all staff members and students:
- Level 0: Silent
- Level 1: Whisper (Only one person can hear you)
- Level 2: Normal conversation voice
- Level 3: Presentation voice
Assembly expectations- Classrooms will enter the gym at a level 0-1 and sit with their classmates in a designated grade-level location. Students will sit on the floor, facing the presenter. Students will track the speaker, take part when asked, and listen attentively. Students will use a voice level 0 during the duration of the assembly unless otherwise specified.
Bathroom expectations- Students will use the bathroom at a voice level 0-2, flush the toilet when done using it, wash their hands with soap, and throw away their paper towel in the trash can in a quick and timely manner.
Cafeteria expectations- Students will enter the cafeteria at a voice level of 0-1 from the gym entrance. They will wait in line at a level 0-1. All students will have a lunch card that they will scan which will ensure the line moves quickly. Students will pick up their tray, milk, utensils, and choose at least two items from the salad bar. Students then progress to the main dish serving area. They will walk to the condiment table and on to their assigned tables. Students will stay seated and converse at a level of 0-2 while eating.
At a signal from the lunch supervisor, students will be excused to clean their trays. Each student is responsible for keeping his/her table and surrounding floor area clean. Students will only touch their own food and use school appropriate language while eating. Due to severe allergies, the peanut table is reserved for students with peanut allergies. Students may line up for recess or to return to class only when an adult dismisses them and must be supervised at all times.
Hallway expectations- Students are to walk silently on the right side of the hallway in single file. Students should keep hands and feet to themselves while transitioning. If another class needs to pass, they should pass to the left. When students are transitioning to the bathrooms or other classrooms alone or in small groups, the same expectations apply.
Bus expectations- Teachers will walk with their students to the bus/car pick up areas at dismissal. When exiting the building to line up for the bus, students will walk in order to make the dismissal process safe for all. Students must line up in a straight line until the bus driver indicates it is time to board the bus. When entering the bus, students will use a voice level 0-2 and will sit in their assigned seat (subject to bus route). Students will refrain from eating and drinking on the bus and will have electronic devices safely stowed in their backpack.
*Failure to obey these rules may result in the loss of bus riding privileges. Rules are in accordance with Washington State Law: WAC 392-145-035.
Classroom expectations- We work with our students to advance the social and academic learning of our students. We believe that students do contribute greatly to a positive learning environment. In accordance with board policy, we expect our students to be active participants in their learning. Students will show respect for their peers, themselves, and all adults. Students will strive to do their best at all times and challenge themselves to persevere, even when the work is difficult.
Recess expectations- Students will follow rules for games as stated by recess supervisors. They will listen to all adults and speak kindly and respectfully to each other. Students will keep their hands and feet to themselves and use playground equipment appropriately. When students hear a long whistle, students on the black top must freeze. If they are on the grass, they run to the edge of the blacktop and freeze. When students hear 2 whistles, they must walk safely to their line up spot. Students holding the equipment will walk and put it away after “freezing”. No food or drink is allowed on the playground. Only authorized adults are allowed to be on the playground at any time.
Specific behavior expectations-
- Use school-appropriate language.
- Students will keep all body parts and objects to themselves. Fighting is not allowed. If a student is hit or treated in a disrespectful manner, the student is expected to walk away from the situation and get help from an adult immediately. Hitting back is not acceptable and will result in consequences for both students.
- Toys of any kind are not allowed at school. This includes trading cards (i.e. Pokemon), electric devices, scooters, roller blades, skates, or skateboards. Items may be taken to the office for pick up by a parent or guardian.
- Electronic devices such as cell phones, cd/dvd players. hand-held video games, mp3 players, etc. are discouraged at school and not allowed out of a backpack. These devices must be stored in a backpack and turned off upon arriving at school. If a staff member hears or sees a device, it will be confiscated. Naches Trail is not responsible for the loss or damage of any of the above items if a student brings them to school. If a student needs to contact home, he/she will notify a teacher so he/she may call home from a school phone.
Dress code- Dress and appearance that cause disruption of the educational process or present health or safety concerns will not be permitted. Some examples that are inappropriate for school include:
- Tops or bottoms that inadequately cover students while participating in school activities
- Bandanas, chains hanging from pants, sagging pants, pajamas, unsafe jewelry
- Clothing with inappropriate language, offensive slogans or symbols, suggestive designs
- Clothing items showing alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drug messages
- Shoes that are “cleated” or that have “wheels”.
- Flip flops or heels
- Hats and hoods (need to be off while in the building)
If a student wears an inappropriate clothing item parents will be contacted and he/she will be asked to turn it inside out or put on donated clean clothing from the health room.
Student management- At Naches Trail Elementary, we are committed to student learning and achievement. We passionately believe that children learn best in a structured environment with clearly communicated expectations and consequences. Staff will invest time at the beginning of the school year teaching your student the expectations for conduct. Although we emphasize a proactive approach to discipline, we also believe that teachers need access to immediate and meaningful consequences. Students who fail to choose to conduct themselves appropriately will be retaught, redirected, and may have a consequence such as lunch and/or recess detention, in-school suspension, or out-of-school suspension. Consequences will be communicated to families and based on the severity of the infraction.
Harassment/Bullying- Bethel School District Policy Number 3207- Students are expected and taught to refrain from intimidating or bullying another student verbally, physically or through written or technological means. This includes on school grounds, school transportation, and school functions/activities. "Harassment, intimidation or bullying" means any intentional written message or image-including those that are electronically transmitted verbal, or physical act, including but not limited to one shown to be motivated by race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation including gender expression or identity, mental or physical disability, or other distinguishing characteristics, when an act:
- physically harms a student or damages the student's property; or
- has the effect of substantially interfering with a student's education; or
- is so severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating or threatening educational environment; or
- has the effect of substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the school.
We teach students that bullying is when someone says or does something intentionally hurtful; they keep doing it even when asked to stop and it is one sided. Students often confuse mean or rude behavior with bullying.
Cases of bullying are to be reported immediately to the school Counselor, Sarah Avila. The Counselor will investigate the incident to determine the nature of the behavior and report details to administration and parents. Administration will then determine consequences or supports needed and report these to the parents involved. If you feel your student is being bullied and you would like to make a report please contact the school directly at 253-800-8700 or go to the Bethel School District website at www.bethelsd.org.
Attendance policies and procedures- Regular attendance is important for students’ social, emotional, and academic successes. Per Washington State law, if your student misses 3.25 hours or more of the school day, they are considered absent for the entire day. Please take a moment to visit the following OSPI website for attendance laws www.k12.wa.us/attendance/
Please report an absence as soon as possible. To report an absence you can do any of the following:
- Call the attendance office at 253-800-8793
- Email Christine Kelley (attendance/ health clerk) at email@example.com
- Log into Family Access and submit an absence request
Naches Trail daily schedule-
Bethel School Board Policy 3122- Excused and Unexcused Absences Excused Absences- Regular school attendance is necessary for mastery of the educational program provided to students of the district. Students at times may appropriately be absent from class. The following principles shall govern the development and administration of attendance procedures within the district and are valid excuses for absences:
- Participation in a district or school approved activity or instructional program;
- Illness, health condition, or medical appointment (including but not limited to medical, counseling, dental, or optometry) for the student or person for whom the student is legally responsible;
- Family emergency, including but not limited to a death or illness in the family;
- Religious or cultural purpose including observance of a religious or cultural holiday or participation in religious or cultural instruction;
- Court, judicial proceeding or serving on a jury;
- Post-secondary, technical school or apprenticeship program visitation or scholarship interview;
- State-recognized search and rescue activities consistent with RCW28A.225.055;
- Absence directly related to the student’s homeless status;
- Absences related to deployment activities of a parent or legal guardian who is an active duty member consistent with RCW 28A.705.010;
- Absence resulting from a disciplinary/corrective action (e.g., short-term or long-term suspension, emergency expulsion); and
- Principal (or designee) and parent, guardian, or emancipated youth mutually agreed upon approved activity.
The school principal (or designee) has the authority to determine if an absence meets the above criteria for an excused absence.
Unexcused daily absences- Any absence from school is unexcused unless it meets one of the criteria above for an excused absence.
Becca Bill- The “Becca Bill” (SB 5439) is our state’s truancy law. Unexcused absences/tardies are subject to a BECCA conference. The BECCA Bill supports the state mandate for students to attend school regularly. When a pattern of attendance concerns become evident, the family will be contacted to determine an attendance plan moving forward. The school can file a petition with the court if a student misses 7 or more days of school in a 30 day period or 10 days in a school year.
Make-up work- The student will be permitted to make up all missed assignments outside of class under reasonable conditions and time limits established by the teacher.
Tardiness- Late arrivals interrupt everyone’s education. Therefore we expect your student to be on time to school each day. If a student is late, they need to go immediately to the health room to receive an admit slip. Students are required to make-up all work missed when tardy.
Students on transfers- It is the responsibility of the parent to provide adequate and timely transportation to ensure that the student attends school regularly and on time. Excessive tardiness, early dismissals, and/or absences may result in re-evaluation of the transfer as outlined in Bethel School District Policy 3131.
What you can do to improve your child’s attendance-
- Set a regular bedtime and morning routine.
- Prepare for school the night before, finishing homework and getting a good night’s sleep.
- Don’t let your student stay home unless they are truly sick. Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home.
- Avoid appointments and extended trips when school is in session.
- Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or another parent.
- Talk to your student about the importance of attending school.
Getting To and From School
Notes from Transportation- Our mission is to provide safe and efficient transportation, which enables student’s access to the educational environment and affords them the opportunity to reach maximum potential.
Please arrive at your bus stop at least 5 minutes ahead of the scheduled time. DO NOT wait on the porch, in the house, or in the car--drivers cannot see you, which is especially difficult for substitute drivers.
Helpful hints for bus riders:
- Please label your student’s backpack.
- Teach your student their bus route’s color designation.
- If your student needs assistance, please encourage them to speak to the driver.
- Basic rules for the bus:
- Kindergarteners sit in the front
- Use quiet voices.
- Toys should stay at home.
- No eating or drinking on the bus.
- Know your bus driver’s name.
- Sit quietly, no standing or moving between seats.
- Be respectful.
For any and all bus/transportation issues, please call the Transportation office at 253-800-5900 or at 253-800-5901.
Bus information for kindergarteners- A designated adult with identification must meet your kindergartener at the bus stop at the scheduled drop-off time. If there is no adult waiting, your child will stay on the bus and be driven to a Bethel School District elementary school. A parent or emergency contact will be called by Transportation. A release form must be completed for Transportation indicating all who are approved to meet your student at the bus stop. Kindergarteners who have the proper forms completed will be allowed to exit the bus with siblings. BE PREPARED, the bus driver will ask for identification.
Arrival/Dismissal procedures- Due to a small parking lot and heavy traffic, we highly recommend utilization of the school bus for your child’s transportation. If you will be driving your child on a regular basis, the following are some important points for our parent drop-off and pick-up loop to run smoothly:
- Please notify the office by 2:30 if you would like to make any changes to how your child goes home. We will not take children off the bus once the buses have been loaded. The buses are on the other side of the building and staff in front for pick-up cannot easily get to them.
- The entrance on the south end of the building is used when entering the Naches Trail parking lot and the north end is used for exiting. Driving or parking on the south side of the building near the playground is not permitted.
- We will be using the entire loop for parent drop-off and pick-up. Please pull as far forward as you can to keep the line moving smoothly and as quickly as possible. If your car is in the loop, your child can unload or load using the passenger side of the car only. Once they have cleared, or are secured in the car, you may pull out to the left and proceed out of the loop.
- For everyone’s safety we highly encourage you to stay in your car and go through the car loop. Due to the high level of parking lot activity before and after school we do not allow parent walk-ups.
Walking or riding bicycles to school- is not permitted at Naches Trail due to the heavy traffic and lack of sidewalks in our neighborhood.
Leaving during school hours- Parents requesting to pick up their student prior to the end of each day will be required to sign their student out from the office and present picture identification. The student will then be called from his/her classroom to meet with the parent/guardian in the office area only. You must complete a Student Pick Up Authorization every school year if someone other than the parent will be picking up your child and make sure that person has picture identification with him/her. The office will not release any student to an unauthorized person.
Emergency dismissal- In the event of a sustained power failure or other unusual circumstances, it may be necessary to dismiss school early. Parents and students should formulate emergency plans in the event school closes early and there is no adult at home. Parents will want to make sure their student knows what to do and where to go in advance. Please make sure your student’s enrollment form remains current with emergency names and phone numbers.
Building Policies and Procedures
Enhanced security- During school hours, all school doors will remain locked and access will only be available through the main entrance at the front of the school. To gain access, parents and visitors will have to press a buzzer outside the school. School staff will then use a camera and intercom system to help identify visitors and grant access to the facility. The system is designed to better protect students and staff from potential threats and intruders. Please have photo identification on you so that we can quickly process your access into the building.
Volunteers and visitors- Parents are encouraged to become active participants at school. To volunteer in a classroom, Parents must communicate and coordinate with the teacher. According to Washington State law, all parents MUST complete an online volunteer application to visit or assist in the classroom. The volunteer application is located on line in the Resources section of the Bethel School District website. Filling out an online application grants permission for a Washington State Patrol Criminal History check. For safety reasons, authorized volunteers, as well as visitors and parents, are not allowed on the playground. All volunteers must report to the office to sign in and pick up a badge to wear. The badge indicates to staff members that it is okay for you to be here, and assists staff in maintaining a safe learning environment. Please do not bring siblings when you are volunteering. Your approval is good for one year. School based volunteering may also be available by working with our Naches Trail PTA.
ParentVue- We hope you will find this electronic application helpful in working with the district to provide the best education possible for your child. Please take a moment to read about what you can accomplish by using ParentVue. To obtain your ParentVue password, call the office at your child’s school. As a reminder, each parent/guardian and student has their own unique login and password. For security reasons, these should not be shared.

School breakfast and lunch- Naches Trail Elementary operates a breakfast and lunch program as part of our educational program. For the 21-22 school year breakfast and lunch will continue to be at no charge (free). Students who bring their lunch from home can get milk also. Breakfast is served from 8:20-8:35 a.m. daily. You may view the menus on the Bethel School District website (click on the Child Nutrition link) at http://www.bethelsd.org.
Health and safety- Our school has a registered nurse who visits on a regular schedule. A health clerk is present on a daily basis. Screening tests are given to students for hearing and vision throughout the school year as needed.
Students come to the health room for a variety of minor injuries or ailments. In the health room, students will be given ice packs, a bandage, or have their temperature taken when feeling ill. Office personnel staff the health room, with a school nurse on call if needed. Parents will be notified with a note/phone call as needed for injuries or concerns if the health clerk deems it necessary. Please keep your telephone numbers and emergency contacts current in our files. Office staff members are not allowed to “treat” a student illness or diagnose illness in any manner.
Typical health room concerns:
- Fever – if a child has a temperature of 100.4 or higher they MUST be sent home. Temperature should be normal for 24 hours before returning to school.
- Vomiting – Parents will be contacted and the child will be sent home if they vomit at school.
- Head Lice/Nits – Bethel School District has a “no nit policy”. This means that students with head lice (live or nits) will be sent home and will be checked upon return to ensure there are no nits before returning to class.
- Head injuries – if your student has a head injury, you will receive a phone call from the Health Clerk. This is a precautionary step to inform you of the injury.
- Bathroom accidents – the health room has a limited supply of clothing. If you think your child may have an accident at school please keep extra clothing in their backpack. Students that get wet from playing at recess will need to call home for a change of clothing.
All medication is kept locked in the health room including over the counter medication such as cough drops or Chapstick. In order for a student to use medication at school, the nurse must have an Authorization for Medication at School form filled out by the doctor and parent. The medication must have the prescription label on it. ***If your child has a life-threatening illness or allergy, medication and an emergency care plan from the school nurse must be on file BEFORE he or she can start school. ***
Immunizations- Children under 18 years of age are required to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases as a condition for attending public and non-public schools and licensed day care centers in Washington. State law requires parents to submit proof of immunization status to the school by the first day of attendance. Those children who are not in compliance with the law will not be allowed to enroll or participate in school until evidence of compliance is presented. Once proof of full immunization has been presented, no further proof shall be required.
Lost and found- Please make sure all items of clothing, bags/backpacks and lunch boxes are marked with your child’s name. Properly identified items are much easier to return to students when found. The lost and found is located in the hallway near the cafeteria. We display all items left in lost and found. Unclaimed items are taken to charity on the last school day of each month.
Student parties and balloons- The school should not be used as a means of distributing private party invitations. If your child would like to bring invitations to school they may hand them out before and after school. Balloons and flowers will not be delivered to the classroom for two reasons: they are a disruption and they are not allowed on school buses. If you want to celebrate with your child, please contact the teacher to verify classroom allergies. Cupcakes or other items of food must be store-bought.

NTE 2021-22 Covid Protocols
How are the protocols established?
Naches Trail safety protocols are informed by the Department of Health, Center of Disease Control and Prevention, and the Department of Labor and Industries. Additionally, all of our protocols follow the following guidelines:
- Keep ill people out of school.
- Physical distancing.
- Hand hygiene.
- Protective equipment.
- Environmental cleaning and disinfection.
What are the mask expectations?
All students, staff, and visitors must wear face coverings at all times while in the buildings, with few exceptions.
Students may remove their masks outside as long as they are in the designated Mask Break Zone and can socially distance from their peers.
What will lunch and recess look like?
Students will remain in their classrooms to eat lunch. Students will remain in their cohorts while outside for recess. Each class will have a designated zone on the playground to have recess. Each zone will have its own game (i.e. tetherball, switch, three-line basketball, etc.) that students may participate in before being assigned a new game later in the week.
What will the classroom be like for my student?
Students will be expected to social distance while in school. Teachers have set up their classrooms to ensure all students are at least three feet apart while seated. Additionally, teachers will be going over all Covid-related expectations at the beginning of the school year. This will ensure that students have a clear understanding of how they can stay safe and keep those around them safe while at school.
Do I need to do a weekly attestation this year?
No. At this time, there will be no attestation. However, it is imperative that you are monitoring your student for any Covid-related symptoms (see list below).
- Fever (100.4°F or higher) or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
What do I do if I suspect my student has Covid?
Please keep your student at home if he/she has any of the symptoms listed above. This helps reduce the chance of the virus spreading to other individuals.
What happens if another student at school has Covid?
In the event that someone in our building (staff or student) tests positive for Covid we will work with our District Nurse and Risk Management to do all contact tracing. If we believe that your child has come into close contact with someone who is Covid-positive you will be notified immediately. If your child was not in close contact but still in proximity, you will receive a letter to let you know of the possible exposure.
