Testing and Vaccination Update
As we approach Labor Day weekend we wanted to provide you an update on two important health mitigation strategies that support a safe opening of school. The Belmont Public Schools applied for and received approval from the state for Routine COVID Safety Checks (formerly referred to as Routine COVID Pooled Testing) and Test and Stay (close contact testing).  We are partnering with Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) for these testing programs.

Superintendent's Newsletter June 11, 2021

John Phelan, Superintendent of Schools

Congratulations to our high school seniors who graduated on June 5. This year, we had graduation outside on Harris Field rather than the BHS Field House. It was a beautiful day, and it was wonderful to be able to celebrate this event and be together. We wish our graduates well in their future endeavors. We also want to congratulate and recognize our eighth grade class who move up to the high school, and our fourth grade class who will move up to Chenery.
