Dear Parents,

I have been made aware of a threatening social media post. The threat is to BHS. However, after investigating, it appears to be a recycled threat from New Mexico. See link below:


I am still working with the Belding Police and the FBI to verify this is not meant for Belding.

I will keep you posted.


Brent R. Noskey,
Belding Area Schools



Belding Area Schools will be on a two hour delay Wednesday, February 21st. No morning Heartlands or Preschool. 



Belding Area Schools will be closed Monday, February 12th.


Monday Feb 5th: High School match is on and middle school games are canceled

Belding Area Schools will be closed Monday February 5th. 


To limit confusion, we will only travel roads we traveled in the a.m. for our p.m. bus run.

Due to the condition of the back roads our buses will pick up on main roads only.


Due to no heat in ONE WING of Ellis Elementary we are canceling afternoon classes for ECSE, Headstart, and GSRP. All other classes are on a normal schedule.

Due to weather conditions, ALL after-school activities for BAS have been canceled. This includes practices, rehearsals, meetings, games, and any event involving our students both home and away.



We will be dismissing our high school and middle school students 15 minutes early today due to our buses needing to take it slow on the roads this afternoon.  This will allow us to stay close to schedule for our elementary routes.  There could still be buses a bit later than normal to our elementary stops.



You may have noticed that many area school districts are going to have a half day tomorrow.  This is due to these districts having buildings that do not have air conditioning.  Fortunately, we have air conditioning in all of our buildings, so we will remain open for a full day tomorrow.

We will be keeping our students in for our p.m. recesses.  We will also monitor rooms (like some of our gyms) that do not have direct air conditioning within them.  If it becomes too warm in these classrooms, we will move these classes to rooms that have direct air within them.

Due to several county districts going to a half day, the ISD programs of Freedom Acres, Heartlands, and Transitions will be a half day.  GSRP will follow a full day normal schedule.





Today’s Middle School Home Track Meet has been rescheduled for May 15th.


-8:40pm – The issue at Ellis has been resolved. School will go on at Ellis Friday as normal.

Either way, we will have school for all students tomorrow. If needed, Ellis students will be at Woodview and the high school. Another update ASAP.

– Due to the sewer issues at Ellis, Students will be heading to the high school for the remainder of the day.  We will dismiss from the high school at regular time.
