Welcome, please come and browse the newsletter.

John P. Phelan, Superintendent of Schools

In every entry you will find news from the schools as well as entries that will be staples in each edition, such as Teaching and Learning, School Committee Updates, and Good News.  We hope to highlight our staff, students, and this amazing community we are all part of.  There is a tremendous amount of activity in every school in Belmont, and we are proud to share it through this newsletter and the BPS website.

This is our last newsletter of 2020. We hope you have a wonderful holiday and new year and a restful winter recess. The last day of school before the break is on December 23, and we resume classes on January 4.

Please see the Winter Holiday Guidance and other information in the last Town weekly Friday update. We know this holiday is very different this year, with beloved family traditions needing to change in order to stay safe.

If you missed this in your mailbox, there was an email sent on December 14 that gives information on procedures and expectations, hybrid and remote learning, and snow days.
