Superintendent's Message


The 2015 Blizzard

John Phelan, Superintendent of Schools

Dear Parents, Guardians, Faculty, and Staff,

I hope you all were able to stay safe and warm during the 2015 Blizzard. 

We are happy to announce that all Belmont Public Schools will be open tomorrow – Thursday, January 29, 2015 at our regular time.

As you know that the amount of snow was extraordinary and troublesome to plow, shovel, and remove. I would like to personally thank the Belmont Public Schools custodian and facilities department members who worked hard to ensure our schools were ready to open. Additionally, many thanks to our Director of Facilities Gerry Boyle and Assistant Director of Facilities Fred Domenici for all their hard work and leadership.

This afternoon, I had the opportunity to drive by each school and through many neighborhoods with Town Administrator David Kale, our new Director of Public Works Jay Marcotte, and Assistant Director of Public Works Mike Santoro to make sure the sidewalks and streets were ready for our students tomorrow.  Many thanks go out to our Department of Public Works team for such a well-coordinated effort under such difficult conditions.  Thank you to all our Town employees who supported this work. My  thanks also to our residents who took the time to clear their sidewalks.

As a reminder, please take precaution getting your children to and from school tomorrow and the remainder of the week. The snow banks are high and we all need to make sure we drive and walk with awareness; keeping the safety of our children in mind.

Have a wonderful rest of the week.

Respectfully,

John P. Phelan
Superintendent of Schools
Belmont, Massachusetts
