  • Hello Stead Families,


    We are in uncertain times with the Coronavirus and are still learning a lot about it. If you would like to learn more, please visit: https://www.washoeschools.net/covid19


    Virtual Learning begins on Wednesday, April 1 and staff members will be reaching out to you via email, phone calls, DoJo, Remind, Bloomz, snail mail, and more to ensure we have constant communication with our students and you.


    Please visit this site for the digial learning opportunities by grade bands (K-2, 3-5, 6th, etc.): https://www.washoeschools.net/Page/14430


    For families who do not have internet services, the community has a few ideas to help - please see this list: 






    • Sprint Sprint (Links to an external site.) is following the FCC agreement, providing unlimited data to existing customers, and, starting Tuesday, 3/17/2020, will allow all handsets to enable hot spots for 60 days at no extra charge.


    • T-Mobile T-Mobile (Links to an external site.) is following the FCC agreement, plus unlimited data to existing customers, and, coming soon, will allow all handsets to enable hot-spots for 60 days at no extra charge.


    At this time, we are unable to check out student devices to students - I wish we could! We just don't have enough for everyone. If you do not have access to the lessons digitally, that is okay. Paper packets will be delivered on Friday, Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday via Transportation. You will see school buses at the winter bus stops on these days for about an hour. Students and parents can walk to the bus stop and pick up a grade level packet. Even if you don't ride a bus, you can pick up a packet. 


    Paper packets are also available at the following locations/times - families can pick up from any of these locations: https://www.washoeschools.net/Page/14392


    Please know our hearts are with you during these challenging times.

  • Online Registration is Open


    Our goal is to have 90% of families registered for next school year by March 13, 2020.


    Current Progress (as of 2.28.2020): 40%


    Classes with 100% of students who complete online registration will earn a reward.

    The first 75 students who return the online registration slips will get a Nacho Party. This originally was the first 50 students, but there were so many we extended it to 75 students. The Nacho Party was the last week in January. 

    All students who return the online registration slip will get a $5 Stead Buck.
