Superintendent's Update Extension of School Closures: March 25, 2020

Dear Families and Staff:

I hope this email finds you and your family in good health.

This afternoon Governor Baker has extended the school closure until May 4. Please see that information here: Boston Globe: Coronavirus Latest Updates.

As you are aware, professionals in the Belmont Public Schools have been working to ensure the well-being of our students. Our teachers and administrators are engaged with our students to check-in with support, while providing online opportunities in this new learning environment.

During this timeline extension, we look forward to hearing guidance from the Commissioner of Education on Friday, March 27, 2020. While waiting for further guidance from the state, our leadership team, inclusive of our educators, we will continue to discuss and plan strategies to further engage our students in remote learning.

We will be providing more information on this and other important subjects over the next few days.


John P. Phelan
Superintendent of Schools
Town of Belmont
