This number is for NON-EMERGENCY calls. If you have an emergency, call 911. 
In an ongoing effort to promote a safe learning environment, the district is providing the community with an anonymous tip line phone number. The purpose of the tip line is to allow the community the ability to share information anonymously regarding issues that may put others’ safety in danger.  Community members can report information about drugs, weapons, alcohol, violence or any threat to safety.  While this can be done anonymously, the more information given (including one’s name), the greater the ability the district has to do a complete investigation and resolve the situation quickly.

Cougar Pride Band goes to DISNEY WORLD!
The Blackhawk Cougar Pride Band traveled to Florida this past week, as is customary every three years. In addition to enjoying time in Walt Disney World and at Cocoa Beach, the band represented Blackhawk with pride on the world's stage as they marched through Epcot on Thursday morning. The guard was treated to an invigorating clinic for dance, flag, sabre, and rifle work that was topped with a special visit from Goofy! The instrumentalists attended the "You're Instrumental" Workshop, where they worked on their performance skills with Disney Clinician and famed composer/arranger Allen Gray. The band learned a little Disney magic, and recorded the soundtrack to Tarzan, synchronized with scenes from the movie, as well as "The Imperial March" from Star Wars with special voice over and sound effects by their directors. Can't wait to go again in the 2020/2021 school year!
