Update on Belair Middle School Construction

Belair Middle School. We have an important update for upcoming Belair Middle School Families

The Richmond County School District is committed to keeping families informed about important developments that may impact the upcoming school year. We are writing to provide an update on the construction of the new Belair Middle School, located at 150 Potential Way, Augusta, GA 30909.


Due to unforeseen construction delays, there is a possibility that Belair Middle School may not be ready to accept students by the first day of school on August 6. We are making this announcement now to ensure families have ample time to prepare for any potential adjustments.


** Key Points: **


- The plan remains for all students to attend Belair Middle School next school year. However, if construction delays prevent this from happening, we are prepared to temporarily send students to another school until Belair Middle is adequately prepared to accept students.


- We are actively coordinating with transportation staff, cafeteria workers and vendors, and faculty, teachers, and principals to ensure a smooth transition, regardless of the circumstances.


- We are working diligently to meet our goal and will do everything possible to adhere to our ambitious timeline. In the event that we determine Belair Middle School will not be ready for students at the beginning of the 2024-25 school year, we will notify all affected families with at least 2 weeks' notice.


-We understand the importance of this new facility for our students coming from Bel Air K-8, Copeland, and Langford middle schools, as well as rising 6th graders from Sue Reynolds Elementary School. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to provide the best possible learning environment for our students.
