Long-time Belmont schools chorus teacher Sean Landers has died, according to an email from Isaac Taylor, Belmont High principal.
“Our school community was saddened to learn of the death of chorus teacher Sean Landers. Sean was a teacher in the district for twelve years, teaching at the middle and high schools. Our community will all miss him very much and will spend many difficult moments grieving his loss,” wrote Taylor.
Landers was one of the capstones of the musical education department, leading choruses that won many awards and prepared individual singers to gain entry into district and state choral groups.
Isaac said that should students wish to process this news in the coming days and weeks, “please encourage them to seek out a guidance counselor, the school nurse, the school resource officer, or a trusted adult in the building. If you as a parent have questions, please feel free to reach out.”
