The Viking View - Families

Monday December 14th

From the Desk of Principal Williams


From the bottom of the Steele Lane Staff, we would like to thank you for being partners in your student's success. I can't believe it is already Winter Break! Just think back and reflect for a minute where we all were in August. The teachers, staff, parents, and students have all grown so much.

On Friday we will be having an assembly to celebrate our Scholars of the month and to have a Winter Sing-a-long. We look forward to seeing your students on Friday from 8:30-9:15 am. Watch the video below to hear the names and see a glimpse of the prizes to choose from. The link for the Zoom will be sent out to students from their teacher. I will also be sending out the link via Parent Square.

We will also be having a school-wide distribution drive through on Friday from 10-12. It will be similar to the Halloween drive-through. We look forward to seeing you there to pick up materials from your teachers. Please connect with your teachers to ensure they have materials for you to pick up.

Lastly, We are having challenging times with our attendance on Wednesdays. Please remember that there is school on Wednesday. Students are expected to connect with their classroom teachers, complete work, and attend their PE and Music classes.

Please take care of yourselves during the break.

Thank you very much,

Principal Williams

Thank you Dutch Bros

Dutch Bros Santa Rosa did a drive thought fundraiser for us earlier in the year. All of the prizes for Scholars of the Week and the Scholars of the Month have been purchased with that money! Thank You Dutch Bros!

Daily Work

  • Please be sure your child is checking their platform each day. We use Seesaw and Google Classroom.
  • Also, all students will benefit from doing 15-20 minutes on Lexia (Core5 for grades K-5, and PowerUp for grade 6) and LGL Math and Language Arts. These programs can be assessed through ClassLink.

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.

Winter Break

We will have no online classes during the Winter Break. Winter Break is Dec 21st-Jan 4th. Our first day back after the Winter Break will be Tuesday, January 5th in the year 2021.

We saw that many of our families had a hard time getting back in the routine after the Fall Break. We recommend getting your student back onto their school sleep schedule at least 4 days before we start back up.

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!
