Registering for Schools

All students entering Belmont Public Schools must meet the immunization requirements set up by Chapter 76, Section 15 of the General Laws of Massachusetts. Proof of immunization must be presented to the school nurse when registering for school. Failure to comply with this ruling will result in exclusion from school. 

Each School has a Health Clinic operated by a registered nurse whose time may be shared with other schools should the need arise. When a student becomes ill at school, a parent or guardian will be notified and expected to pick up the student as soon as possible.  Each parent or guardian is asked to provide the school with the names of two (2) alternate persons who may be contacted in the event that a parent/guardian cannot be reached. Persons listed must be local and have access to transportation.  Please advise the school office when any name or number changes.

Complete information with regard to required immunizations and physical examinations, medication administration during the school day and when a child should be kept home due to illness, etc. can be found on our website.
