Department of Student Services

The Department of Student Services is a 5-member committee whose purpose is to meet the needs of your student. We are here to support students throughout all parts of the high school experience. Post-Secondary and High School guidance, as well as academic and social/emotional support is offered through the Department of Student Services. Students and families may contact any DSS member or the team via email [email protected] to express their needs and we will be able to provide immediate support or direct you to the proper resources.
If you have urgent concerns, please contact the main office at 218-722-7574x0
