In the coming weeks, you may see increased law enforcement to check school zone speeds and ensure proper use of the following areas:

  • Passenger Loading Zone (PLZ), on Leigh Ave., is only for dropping off or picking up students while the drivers/parents remain in their vehicles

  • The 15-minute parking zone, (On Leigh;  Prior to the Passenger Loading Zone (PLZ) by the bus loop), is for drivers/parents who prefer to leave their vehicle and walk students to/from the campus. 

With your help, we can keep our students safe as they travel to and from school and keep traffic flowing well in our neighborhood.

We would like to thank Mrs. Emerson and Ms. Enfantino for their years of service and dedication to the students of Blackford and CUSD.

Both Mrs. Emerson and Ms. Enfantino have each taught over 23 years in the district.  They have given countless hours to planning, collaborating, designing, creating, teaching, assessing, nurturing, guiding and loving students and their profession.

Ms. Enfantino is finishing her career teaching TK, our youngest learners.  Mrs. Emerson will finish her career teaching Kindergarten.  They each have been instrumental in shaping the lives of our youngest learners.  

We are happy for them both and know they are both looking forward to traveling in their retirement!  Please join us in wishing them well in their retirement.
