4th and 5th grade students in the Belmont-Redwood Shores school district, have the opportunity to participate in the instrumental music program.  Classes are held once a week, during the school day.  5th grade students who participated last year, should receive the sign-up form during the first week of school.  4th grade students will be meeting with the music teachers during the second or third week of school, to hear about the program.  Students will receive written information and a sign-up form following the meeting.  The instrumental music program is an optional program.

  • Beginning 2016-17, the District will no longer offer "emergency lunches."  Parents wishing to order meals must do so online at www.choicelunch.com by 9:00 am the day before the meal is served (4 days prior for field trips).  If you do not order by the deadline, please be sure to send a lunch to school with your child.  If you order lunch, please remind your child to pick it up.
  • Lunch program information is available on the District’s website at www.brssd.org/Lunch_Program.  This includes ordering information and applications for the Free and Reduced-Price Meal Program.
  • Students who qualified for free or reduced-price meals last year must re-apply by September 16 to continue to qualify for the rest of the year.

Earlier this spring, our Board of Trustees authorized a new volunteer clearance process, which will improve student safety, reduce volunteer paperwork, and keep our practices in line with other neighboring districts, including the Sequoia Union High School District.  Importantly, volunteers who may be unsupervised with students (field trip chaperones, afterschool tutoring and clubs, playground supervision, book fair, etc.) will be required to have fingerprint clearance through the California Department of Justice and the FBI.  Fortunately, volunteers will only need to go through the clearance process once for their entire stay in our school district! 

 

Thanks to the partnership of our seven school PTAs, all volunteers who go through the fingerprint process by September 30, 2016, will do so at the District's expense.  You can complete the volunteer form online, and if you choose to be cleared for volunteer roles that require fingerprinting, you can print the necessary Live Scan fingerprint form and take it to a designated local vendor during business hours (Mon-Sat). 

 

Thank you for participating in this new process.  We're excited that this new approach will enhance student safety while doing away with annual volunteer clearance processes. 

 

Please do not procrastinate.  Starting with the 2016-17 school year, all volunteers must complete this process before they are allowed to volunteer.  To begin the clearance process, please go to the District's volunteer webpage.    

 

Please send questions to me or the Educational Services Department at edservices@brssd.org
