The Viking View - Families

March 1st

From the desk of Principal Williams


We hope you all are well at home. There has been so much happening here at Steele Lane. We have a new office manager. Lizbeth Angeles Hernandez started today and is off to a great site. Also Daisy Roman is our new Family Engagement Facilitator, and Adam Bates will be our new Restorative Specialist. I am excited for these new additions and changes for our school community.

We are also moving forward with the return to in-person learning. Our office staff has been calling and will continue to finish tomorrow with any families that we have not confirmed a learning option. It is important for us to confirm with you so we can finalize our classroom rosters. Please see the letter below in both Spanish and English that I sent home last Thursday via Parent Square.

Lastly, It is extremely important that you get connected with the Parent Portal and Parent Square to receive all information coming from our school and district. Please look in the section below for Parent Resources regarding these.

With much gratitude,

Mrs. Williams

From our Music Teacher Ms. Barron

3/4 Grade students

Hello All!

I am writing to let you know that there are bags for your students with a recorder (an instrument) and packets. Each bag has your child's name on it.

Please come pick that up because I want to start teaching them how to play this fun instrument by next week.

The bags are in a box with Mrs Sapp's or Mrs Klosevitz’s name on it. Some of you have already picked one up from Mrs Dean's and Mr Mensch’s classes, but if you haven't yet, please come get the bag!

If your child already owns one or is using one that was already at home, you still need to come to school to pick up the packet we will be using.

Thanks in advance for helping your child succeed in music class.

First Graders

Hello everyone!

I am the Music teacher at Steele Lane Elementary School.

Thank you for helping your child become music makers by having picked up the bags with musical notes in them.

Now they are ready to go even further in their musical adventures.

There are boxes with bags of instruments for each child in first grade. They are near the front door of the school.

Please help them remember to keep the instruments in the bag when we are not using them in class, or only take them out if they are doing a music assignment in SeeSaw.

I want to start using them next week, March 4, 2021.

Thanks in advance for supporting your child's music making.

We need students enrolling at Steele Lane!

Thank you for those of you that have contacted our school about registering for Kindergarten or Kinder Academy. This is helpful for our planning for next year! Please continue to help us spread the word about Kindergarten registration. If you have or know someone who lives in our attendance area and has students that are kindergarten age please encourage them to register. This will help our school know more about how many students will be attending so we can staff our school appropriately. Here is the link with all of the information for registration. We look forward to adding your students to the Steele Lane Family!

Materials to pick-up

Some of the teachers may reach out to you to pick-up materials. Please park in the yellow loading area in front of the school and walk in the gate. Use hand sanitizer upon entry. One of our yard duty or office staff will be inside the main hallway to retrieve and place your materials on a table for you to gather. We are making this change for pick up to minimalize contacts and help stop the spread of COVID 19. If there is not a staff member at the door please call the mainline at 707 890-3945 so we can support you. You can come to pick up materials during office hours between 8 and 2:30 pm. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding with the update.

When you are on campus

As we welcome families/students to campus for our various material distribution, we'd like to remind you of a few health and safety protocols.

1. Please stay home if you or your student:

  • exhibit COVID-19 symptoms (i.e. fever of 100.4°F or higher, cough, shortness of breath, new loss of taste or smell, etc.)
  • tested positive for COVID-19, and are within the 10-day isolation period
  • have had close contact (longer than 15 minutes) with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days
  • live or cohabitate with a person who exhibits COVID-19 symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19
  • traveled outside of the state (specifically to high-risk areas) within the past 14 days

2. While on campus, please respect social distancing of 6 feet and wear a mask at all times. We recommend sanitizing your hands prior to and after the event.

Nominate one of our Steele Lane Teachers!

Nominate a special public school or public charter school teacher in your life with the form below. Each month we’ll review the submissions and choose one teacher to honor, based on the number of individual nominations they receive as well as the quality of teaching described in the nominations (details about amazing teaching strategies, stories about how the teacher went above and beyond, etc.) The lucky teacher will receive a plaque in recognition of this award and $500 school supply gift card!

All you need to do is tell us who you think is the Teacher of the Month, right here...
