Winter weather is here!

Winter weather is here!

  • Is your child dressed for the winter weather?  Sometimes our students like to scoot out of the door in the morning without gloves, hats, and boots.  With snowy and cold weather coming, make sure your child has a warm coat, gloves, and hat on them when they leave for school.  All students will go out for some fresh air for recess when the temperature is above zero degrees with the wind chill.  Snow pants and boots are needed if your child wants to play in the snow.  Otherwise, students will play on the blacktop that is cleared of snow.  When the wind chill index reaches below zero degrees or when precipitation causes outdoor activities to be extremely uncomfortable, recess is held indoors.  Therefore, please remember to help your child dress for the winter weather.

  • The Blackwell Family Giving Tree will be available in the office beginning Friday, November 22nd.  The Blackwell Family Giving tree will have ornaments for individual children with “a wish” gift request and other pertinent information. We ask that all gift requests taken be logged in with the secretaries, wrapped with the ornament firmly taped to the gift, and returned to the office by Monday, December 16th so families can pick them up the week before we leave for break.
  • If you would like more information about Blackwell’s Family Giving Tree, you can contact the main office at 847-357-5555 or the Blackwell Social Worker at 847-357-5548.
