A Message from the Superintendent Regarding Extension of School Building Closures

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Staff:

This afternoon Governor Baker announced school buildings will be closed for the remainder of the school year in Massachusetts, and remote learning will continue for the remainder of the academic calendar.

In his press conference today, the Governor stated that we are still very much in the grips of a pandemic in Massachusetts, and cannot ensure the safety of students and staff if schools were to reopen.

Given this new information and updated status, the district will continue our remote learning plan as we continue to learn the strengths and growth areas in our current program.   

The extension of the school closure will come with many questions, and we will continue to work collaboratively with our educators and School Committee to provide you with those answers as soon as possible.


John P. Phelan
Superintendent of Schools
Belmont, Massachusetts
