School Visit Procedure

Our new school has a new security system.  The front doors of the school will be locked between 9:00 am and 2:20 pm, and again at 3:00 pm.  At that time, the “Wing Door” by the main parking lot will be open for aftercare parents. 

In order to ensure the safety of all of our students, during the school day, all visitors will have to ring the bell at one of the main entrances, and be “buzzed” into the building.  It will be imperative that all visitors come to the main office to sign in and to obtain a “Volunteer” badge.  Wellington staff members will not only assist all visitors but will also confirm that visitors have legitimate business at the school.  When you leave the building, we ask that you sign out again and return the badge. 

Visitors who are volunteering for the day should go directly to the school office I realize that this is a change from our past practice and ask that you all join us in making this work, keeping us informed about who is in the building and keeping all of our students safe and comfortable!!

Transportation

Belmont School Committee policy determines the extent to which pupils in Kindergarten through Grade 12 are transported by bus. The Belmont Public Schools’ policy for providing busing will follow the State guidelines, and busing for students will be available for a fee.

  • School Crossing Guards are provided by the Belmont Police Department to assist walkers in crossing some busy streets.
  • Pupils in special education programs are also transported if an out-of-district placement is required.
  • Bus routes are published annually prior to the start of school in the local newspaper and are always available in the school offices and on the district web site.
