The Viking View for Families

A note from the Principal
Steele Lane Families,
We are excited to connect with you next week during conference week. Please remember that school gets out each day at 11:50 on September 26th-30th. If you have not heard from your teacher about your conference time please reach out to them via ParentSquare.
ParentSquare is our primary way of communicating with our families. If you are not set up on Parent Square please connect with our Family Engagement Facilitator, Daisy Roman 707-241-4794. If there is a concern with your student please reach out to the classroom teacher first so that they can support you.
We would like to ask for your support regarding lunches at school. Please refrain from bringing lunches to school for your students during school hours. We understand that there are times that are emergencies, but it is challenging when students are brought fast food to school. Please note below that there are free school lunches for all.
With much Gratitude,
Join me in earning cash for our school by using the Box Tops app. It’s an easy way to make a difference. All you have to do is buy Box Tops participating products (like Cheerios!) and scan your grocery receipt. Box Tops are worth $.10 each and they add up fast! Twice a year, our school receives a check to help pay for whatever we need - equipment, supplies or experiences the kids love!
Use this referral code ECHK59R2 when you sign up and you’ll get 40 Bonus Box Tops when you scan your first receipt now through 09/05/2022, while supplies last! Download the Box Tops for Education app here: https://btfe.smart.link/c2jjdifkw?referral_code=ECHK59R2
A lunch application must be completed each year to help our schools qualify for federal funding that benefits all students. For the 2022-23 school year, all students will receive breakfast/snack and lunch for free regardless of qualifying conditions. The meal application can be done by answering two questions in your parent portal during your registration process. You may also complete the application online using this link. You only need to complete this process once for your family, regardless of whether your children are enrolled in different schools. We are also happy to help our families complete the application over the phone or in person. Please call our Main Office or come by for support.
Conference week is approaching, September 26th-30th. It is an early dismissal week for all at 11:50am. Please reach out to your student's teacher if you have not already signed up for a conference time. We look forward to having the opportunity to connect with you about your student's school year.
Communication - Parent Square
As we all learned very quickly during the pandemic, home and school communication is extremely important. Please be sure that you are connected and able to access our Steele Lane Elementary School Parent Square.
It is recommended that you download the Parent Square application on your smartphone. Please give us a call for help if you need it!
