Lunchtime provides your child the opportunity to socialize with his/her peers as they eat independently. It is also a wonderful extension of the classroom where social learning takes place. In order to allow your student this social success at lunchtime, VISITORS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT LUNCH or RECESS unless approved by the classroom teacher and the administration on a special occasion circumstance. Please be aware that the more time you spend with your child during their lunchtime, can affect how they interact and behave with their peers. It may increase separation anxiety with your child as well as inhibit them from socializing with other students. Our number one focus is on your child’s education and social/emotional development and therefore it’s imperative that you encourage your child to be independent and learn how to eat and socialize with their fellow peers. We have ample coverage at recess and lunchtime, so your child is in good hands. We understand that it can be difficult to allow your child this independence, however we firmly believe the more you allow your child to eat on their own and socialize, the more they will begin to navigate social situations and feel a sense of empowerment. Please note this new policy will go into effect December 12, 2016. If you have any questions please feel free to stop by the office. We love seeing you on campus and there are many ways that you can get involved. If you would like some ideas about volunteering or other opportunities to support our campus please come to the front office. Thank you so much for your continued support of Blackford and our students.

To help with safety and the flow of traffic in the parking lot after school, please make sure to adhere to a few guidelines. Please do not park and wait for your child(ren) in the yellow zone during the 2:50 dismissal time if you have a child(ren) with a release time of 3:00. This is significantly impacting the flow of the pick up lane. Please do not park and leave your car unattended at any time in the yellow or red zones. Please do not double park next to the cones at any time. Please make sure to stay in line in the pick up lane if you are coming around to the yellow curb to wait for your child(ren) to get in the car. Please do not pull around in the drive through lane and then cut over into the pick up lane, this is significantly impacting the pick up process and is dangerous. Thank you so much for following these guidelines in an effort to make sure all of our students at Blackford stay safe.
