Resource: SOMSD Special Services Contact List, Summer 2022

Summer 2022: SOMSD Special Services Staff

Note from Susie Budine, SOMSD Assistant Superintendent of Special Services:
Please see below the appropriate staff to contact for the summer. Also, kindly note that the district is on a skeleton crew from mid-August until school starts in September. You may experience a longer than usual delay in response during this time, but someone will get back to you as soon as they can.

IMPORTANT: Please choose a contact based on your child’s 2021-2022 school placement, NOT the school they will attend in the fall.
