From the desk of Principal Williams


Steele Lane is such a special place. The students and staff at our school are special. Your students are happy and have so much joy on their faces. Their teachers are working so hard to ensure that they are getting what they need each and every day. Thank you for being a part of the Steele Lane Family and supporting us from home.

I am especially proud of how the students and staff have handled the rain this week. Please help us remind our students to avoid the puddles and other water features out and about around school.

If your student is placed in modified quarantine because they were a close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, your student will need to get tested 2 times with the 10 day period. Please read below about locations where you can get your student tested.

With much gratitude,

Mrs. Williams

Students may wear costumes, but must follow the following guidelines;

  • No scary masks
  • No weapons
  • No blood
  • If they have an appropriate mask it may be worn at school during the parade only
