Reminder to Students-No Trespassing on The Railroad Tracks

The [MBTA] project would like to remind residents that ALL TRESPASSING ACTIVITY [on the railroad tracks] between Channing Road and the High School properties must cease IMMEDIATELY. Trespassing is on the Commuter Rail Right Of Way is Illegal and highly dangerous. The MBTA Police will be working with local administration, school, and public safety officials to ensure that this activity ceases. In addition to this being an active high-speed railroad right of way, it is also currently an active construction site. Improvements at this location will include a remotely operable movable point heated rail switch which will present additional hazard to trespassers.

Weather Advisory

The weather forecast is predicting very cold temperatures tomorrow. Please make sure your student wears a warm coat, hat, and gloves to school. We have had discussions with our Facilities Director and have decided to leave the heat on through the night so students will be warm upon arrival at school. Our bus company has also assured us that the buses will be ready to transport students in the morning. Parents should know that although school will be in session, you always have the choice to keep your student home if you are uncomfortable about sending them out.

BHS Homework Free Weekend (1/23 – 1/25)

BHS Homework Free Weekend

January 23rd – 25th

The intent of BHS homework-free weekend is to be a

gesture and acknowledgement of the stress placed on everyone.

It is not meant to be a cure for the problem, but merely an

attempt to reduce the stress level of the faculty, staff and students at Belmont High School.

(weekend is subject to change due to snow days)
