Will Belair Middle School Be Able to Open On The First Day of School?


The Richmond County School District announced possible delays in opening the new Belair Middle School for the 2024-25 school year, citing unforeseen construction setbacks.

🏫 Why It Matters: This delay could impact hundreds of students and families, potentially requiring last-minute adjustments to school assignments and transportation plans.

🚧 What’s Happening:

  • The new Belair Middle School, located at 150 Potential Way, may not be ready for students by August 6, the first day of school.
  • The district is preparing contingency plans to temporarily relocate students if necessary.

📅 Catch Up Quick: Belair Middle School is set to serve students from:

  • Bel Air K-8
  • Copeland Middle School
  • Langford Middle School
  • Rising 6th graders from Sue Reynolds Elementary

🔮 The Big Picture: While the district remains committed to opening Belair Middle as planned, they’re balancing optimism with pragmatism:

  • A final decision will be communicated at least two weeks before the school year begins.
  • District officials are coordinating with transportation staff, cafeteria workers, vendors, faculty, and principals to ensure a smooth transition regardless of the outcome.

The Richmond County School District emphasizes their commitment to providing the best possible learning environment for students, even if it means temporary adjustments. Families are encouraged to stay informed through the district’s website and official communications as the situation develops.
