Wellington School Student and Parent Handbooks

Dear Wellington Elementary School Families:

Welcome to a new school year! This handbook is designed to be used in conjunction with the Wellington Elementary School Student Handbook that is sent home with each child on the first day of school. These two documents address the expectations and routines that govern our day-to-day practices at school as well as many of the district-wide policies that we implement throughout the Belmont Public Schools.

Our staff works hard to maintain a positive, inclusive, and supportive school culture. We recognize the importance of building a community in which all members feel a true sense of belonging and are enabled to achieve and to grow. In order for this to occur, it is essential that we all understand the expectations and responsibilities that guide our community. It is also important for all of us to accept responsibility for our choices, and to understand the role of our actions in developing and nurturing successful relationships.

Please take some time to read this Family Handbook and to discuss the Student Handbook with your children during the first few days of school. We hope that you will engage in dialogue with them, highlighting what is expected and why these choices and actions are important. This process will strengthen the students’ home-to-school connections and will encourage them to carry over the positive attitudes and behaviors that you have taught them at home to their time at school.

Thank you for your on-going partnership and for helping us to maintain a supportive and respectful community at Wellington Elementary School. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.


Dr. Heidi Paisner, Principal
