Principal's Corner

It’s Fall Y’all! I would like to thank all of our STEAM families for their continual support as we continue to navigate through this school year. It brings me great joy to see both in person, and virtual students laughing and taking part in the creative learning environment here at STEAM.


Here are a few items that would help us in making sure that your child is prepared for school each day:


  • Please make sure your STEAM student is present to school (both virtually and face to face) each day before 8:15am.
  • Make sure your student comes to school with a fully charged laptop each day.
  • Please make sure your student has a face mask each day.


I would like for you to know that your feedback is very important to me. Below I have included a form for you to ask questions or share any concerns with me.


Forward ever, Backwards never,

Noel Greenwood

We are seeing an increase in students pulling down or taking off their face coverings. Please be advised that face coverings are required on campus at all times unless directed by a teacher or administrator (e.g. mask break, eating).


Failure to comply may result in disciplinary action.

Visitors


There will be no visitors on campus at this time. Please have your child plan and prepare the night before to ensure they have all items they will need for the day. Many parents have been bringing forgotten phones, trust cards, Chromebooks, water bottles, lunch boxes, etc. Also, parents are not allowed to drop off food/drinks from restaurants. We will only be able to receive essential items per COVID-19 guidelines.
