Update on Special Olympics in San Mateo County
Given the current impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, SMCOE has temporarily paused its partnership with the Special Olympics of Northern California (SONC). While SMCOE staff will not be facilitating Special Olympics events in the immediate future, SONC will be organizing fall sports, fitness events, and other opportunities that San Mateo County teachers and students can access virtually. If your school is interested in becoming a Unified Champion School this academic year, a representative from your school site may work directly with Lauren Mulhern from Special Olympics of Northern California. You can reach Lauren via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SMCOE values its long-standing partnership with Special Olympics and the work it is doing to move unified sports to a virtual environment. We look forward to renewing our collaborative relationship in the not too distant future.
