The Belmont Police are responsible for covering 16 crossing posts twice a day in the mornings and afternoons.

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.
