The late winter storm set to arrive in eastern Massachusetts on Tuesday, March 14 and stay until Wednesday, March 15, has already had an impact on Belmont:
Students coming home after lunch Wednesday
Belmont Public Schools will hold school on Tuesday, but students will be dismissed after lunch at the usual Wednesday earlier release time.

Additionally, all after-school and evening activities are canceled. The elementary and middle school after-school programs will contact families regarding changes to the structure of their day.
Superintendent candidate public interviews moved back two days
The inclement weather and possible traveling difficulties, the superintendent finalist district visits have been postponed to Thursday, March 16, and Friday, March 17.
The Belmont School Committee is erring to allow maximum community participation at the public forums and interviews rather than risking inclement weather preventing anyone from attending.
The new schedule is:
Thursday, March 16
3:30-4:30 p.m.: SC Interview with Dr. Jill Geiser
4:45-5:45 p.m.: SC Interview with Dr. Carlee Simon
