Superintendent's April 3, 2020 Newsletter

Superintendent's April 3, 2020 Newsletter

date 4/3/2020

My hope is that everyone reading this communication is healthy and stays healthy during this difficult time. The COVID-19 epidemic has produced such a startling upheaval to our everyday lives, and our hope is to provide some balance and support for each other as we move through this pandemic.

I would like to thank our families and students for their support and patience over the last few weeks. Our educators have been working hard to provide enrichment and support, and are now working harder as they scale up to our Phase 2 Remote Learning plan. My deepest appreciation for our educators, directors, principals, and all of our staff for their professionalism and creativity as they move forward with this new learning model for our students.

Have a wonderful winter recess.

As we reflect on what we are thankful for this Thanksgiving, I want to give my heartfelt thanks to the parents and guardians, the Town departments, our teachers and staff, and the entire Belmont community for their continued support for our students.

We also want to thank the Belmont Middle and High School Building Committee (BMHSBC) for all the work they have done this year and past years on the construction project. We are happy to report the design is 90 percent complete and is currently on budget.
