Belmont schools will begin the summer recess this spring.
At the Belmont School Committee’s meeting on Tuesday, April 26, Schools Superintendent John Phelan thanked residents and students for their “understanding” for trudging through a few heavy snow days this winter as the administration decided against declaring a snow day.
And since the district only cancelled classes once due to weather, the reward is that school children will begin summer break on one of the earliest dates in memory.
The Committee voted unanimously to approve Thursday, June 16 as the final day of the 2015-16 school year.
The day will be an early release day for students and a full day for staff.
