Belmont Update on School Closure

Dear Families, Faculty, and Staff –

After much consideration and discussion we will be closing  all Belmont Public School buildings starting tomorrow, Friday, March 13, 2020. There is no school tomorrow.

This decision was made in consultation with the Town of Belmont’s Department of Health.  Belmont is one of several neighboring districts taking this step together. These districts have issued a joint press release to their communities.

As stated in the press release, all schools will be closed from Friday, March 13, 2020 to Friday, March 27, 2020.

During this time teachers will not be assigning work. As such, students do not need to return to school to gather materials until further notice.

As soon as we have additional information to share we will provide updates via email to our school community.

Please read the joint Press Release on our website: Schools to Close through at Least March 27

The Town of Belmont has set up an Information line for residents to call with any question regarding COVID-19. If you have questions you are encouraged to call 617-993-2222.

We appreciate your support and trust during this challenging time.


John P. Phelan
Superintendent of Schools
Belmont, Massachusetts
