Blackford students will not be required to wear uniforms for the 2016-2017 school year. Although there were strong numbers in favor for uniforms, the committee did not receive the 90% particpation of Blackford families required to move forward with this initiative. Please note there is still a dress code for our school that should be adhered to. This dress code can be found in the students handbook that will be sent home the first week of school. Please feel free to contact the front office with any questions. Enjoy your summer!
This has been an amazing year full of learning, fun, and great experiences. It is hard to believe that we are getting ready to wrap up our 2015-2016 school year. We have enjoyed each and every day with your students and have appreciated all you have done for Blackford. To those of you who will be moving on to middle school or other schools next year, we will definitely miss having you as a part of our Blackford Family. For those of you returning for the 2016 - 2017 school year we look forward to seeing you next school year. Thank you again for an amazing year. GO BOBCATS!!

We are extremely excited to meet our incoming Kindergarteners and their families for the 2016-2017 school year. On August 17, 2016, we are holding our anual Kinder Round-Up. If your child is entering kindergarten, you will be given a designated time to bring them to meet some of our kindergarten teachers and receive initial assessments in reading and math. Our PTA will be there to meet everyone as well! If you have any questions, feel free to call (408) 978-4675.
Following the Kinder Round-Up, we will hold our Kindergarten Orientation at 4:00 p.m. in the Multi-Use room (located next to the front office). We look forward to meeting you and your child!

Now all CUSD schools have digital marquee signs, like our school, making it faster and easier to share announcements with families and the community. To accommodate neighbors’ wishes, the new signs will operate from 7:30 AM to 6:30 PM Monday through Friday, and 10 AM to 4 PM on weekends. Their brightness is at 25% power, and district staff is exploring ways to make the internal fans quieter. Otherwise, as is the case for us, the signs are proving very helpful in notifying people of important dates and events at the schools so they may plan accordingly.
