Calendar Update - District Closed 5/27 & 5/31
Every year, the district schedules three emergency school closing days. If the district uses fewer than the allotted three days, then “give back days” are scheduled near Memorial Day Weekend.
This year, the district, so far, was only closed for one day (Monday January 25th). SOMS, however, was closed an additional 2 days due to water main breaks in the neighborhood.
Therefore, unless we use an emergency closing day in the meantime, the district will be closed for both Friday May 27th, and for Tuesday May 31st.
SOMS will have additional time added on at the end of the year to account for the two days closed for the water main breaks. An email explaining the plan will be sent directly to SOMS staff and families.
