Volunteer Clearance Process
If you would like to volunteer at Nesbit, we are highly encouraging parents to get fingerprinted at the UPS store on the corner of Wessex and Old County by September 30. If you get fingerprinted by September 30, BRSSD will pay for the costs.
To get more information on the volunteer clearance process, go to http://brssd-ca.schoolloop.com/volunteer_info.
Don't delay, do it today and bring a smile on your child's face when they see you volunteering at school.
Use this map to help orient yourself to where your child's class will line up for Morning Gathering.
If your child would like to participate in an after-school flag football league, click here for more information and to sign up for tryouts.
Nesbit PTA hosts two fundraising events per year.
These fundraising dollars pay for Back-to-School supplies, Music for Minors, Art in Action, Technology, Assemblies, Field trips, curriculum materials plus a host of community events!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
A quaint school with a bright future opened its doors in 1953 with only five classrooms and almost 200 students. On January 28, 1954, this school was named after Mrs. Mae Nesbit. Mrs. Nesbit came to Belmont in 1932 as a teaching principal. She then became a supervising principal and in 1942 she was appointed superintendent of Belmont Elementary School, now Nesbit.
In 1996, Nesbit received its first California Distinguished School Award.
In 2004, Nesbit celebrated its 50th birthday.
In 2008, Nesbit was honored for a second time with a California Distinguished School Award.
In 2014, Nesbit was honored for a third time with a California Distinguished Schools Award.
In 2015, Nesbit was honored with a San Mateo County's School Board Kent Award.
Nesbit has come a long way since it first opened its doors. There are now over 575 students in TK - 7th and SDC classes, as well as, 50 staff members who call Nesbit School their home.
