FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL – School begins at 8:35 am and ends at 2:50 (for TK, Kinder, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade) and 3:00 (for 4th and 5th grade). Wednesdays are minimum days at Blackford. TK through 3rd grade will be released at 1:50 and 4th and 5th grades will be released at 2:00.
COFFEE AND KLEENEX –At 8:50 am, after you have dropped off your child in the classroom, feel free come to the Multi-Use room to meet other parents and hear from the Principal and Assistant Principal. This is very informal and is an opportunity to meet and greet as we know sometimes the first day of school can be hard on parents with saying goodbye to their little ones.
