The FBE is thrilled to announce two new Rapid Response Grants have been awarded to the Belmont Public Schools totaling $1,775. One RRG is for Wellington Elementary, for flexible seating to assist with COVID learning. The other is for Winn Brook Elementary, for wireless keyboards for teachers enabling more flexibility to move around the classroom when teaching remote and live learners at the same time.

The FBE has partnered with Jayne’s Flowers to spread a little sunshine throughout Belmont. For the month of April, you can order a beautiful bouquet of daffodils, and FBE volunteers will hand-deliver them anywhere in Belmont. What a great chance to spread some cheer and let a special person, family, school, or business know that you are thinking of them. Not only will you  brighten up someone’s day, you will be supporting FBE grants, programs, and services in the process.

Support and Solidarity

Support and Solidarity

Dear Belmont Community, The Belmont Public Schools Equity Team and all BPS educators and staff are saddened and disappointed by current events targeting Asians, Asian-Americans, Pacific Islanders. Six Asian-American women were brutally murdered at work in Atlanta. This is one very jarring example that comes during a year of increased scapegoating and racism against the Asian community. We won’t tolerate this in our schools or in our community and will work against it. We stand up against all types of racism and stand in solidarity with our Asian community.

Message from Superintendent Phelan - Return to In Person Learning Working Group Update

date 3/4/2021
I am writing with our weekly update on the Return to In-Person Learning Working Group, and to share some thoughts on this very challenging year. I want to recognize that this has been a difficult year for students, as well as for parents and families. It has also been the most significant challenge our educators have ever faced. There are no easy answers as we battle COVID-19. I want to personally thank Belmont Public School educators for their tireless and extraordinary work on behalf of our children. I also want to thank the families of Belmont for the grace they have shown--and continue to show--as we work through this devastating public health crisis.
