The Viking View - Families

Monday, August 31st

From the desk of Principal Williams

Families,

It was wonderful to see you all during the materials distribution day on Friday. We only had about 20 bags of student's materials left to distribute. I am filled with pride knowing that our school community is working collaboratively together to support our student's success.

I appreciate each one of you and understand the difficulty of distance learning. Steele Lane staff are here to provide support.


I am honored to be your principal,


Mrs. Williams

Student Materials and Chromebooks

If you missed our distribution day last Friday we have your materials in the office. Please come to the front door and we will give you your student's materials.


If your students is still in need of a Chromebook please let your student's teacher know or call the office at 707-890-3945 so we can provide one for you. Using a district-provided Chromebook will solve most technological problems.

Attendance

In order for you child to receive their attendance mark for the day, they must attend a live meeting (eg. Zoom), submit work, log-in to a learning platform that is being used in their class, email or call their teacher, or interact with another staff member--each day!


The best thing for your student is for them to actively engage in their class meetings and complete all assignments just like they would if they were at school in person. If you have any questions about attendance, please call the office at 707-890-3945 or communicate with your teacher.
