School Crossing Guards - Availability in the 2020-21 School Year
School Crossing Guards - Availability in the 2020-21 School Year
The Belmont Police are responsible for covering 16 crossing posts twice a day in the mornings and afternoons. Crossing Guards are assigned to each post, and we have reserve crossing guards to fill in when a permanent crossing guard is absent. We currently have three full time crossing guard vacancies as well as three reserve vacancies. We are attempting to fill both positions.

Super Heroes take on the FBE Apple Run 5K!
RUN SAFELY! Our Super Heroes have put together a fun and important video of running our 5K course, highlighting safe crossing points, and top tips on how best to run the course. We will not have police or public safety monitors on the course this year, so the FBE urges participants to beware of street traffic when running.

Belmont Food Service Updates
Belmont Food Service Updates
While the start of the school year looks a little different for everyone, I wanted to share with you some good news that schools nationwide recently received. The USDA extended a waiver that allows schools to serve free breakfast and lunch to ALL students, as late as December 31, 2020 or as long as funding is available. We are thrilled with this news as it means that we will be able to provide all Belmont students with nutritious and nourishing food for free that will support them, both in school and at home. Here are the multiple methods in which meals will be available.

Superintendent's September 18, 2020 Newsletter

John Phelan, Superintendent of Schools

Welcome back to students and families to the beginning of school year 2020-2021. The first few days of school are behind us, and we thank you for your patience as we work out the challenges that come with using this new technology in our classrooms. This is the first Superintendent’s newsletter of the year, which is published monthly to give you news from the district. During this year, we will also continue to issue Superintendent’s Bulletins as necessary to give you important information that may need to be delivered in a timely manner pertaining to COVID or operational news.
