Patterson Announcements
SNACK POLICY for all schools strictly enforced. PLEASE READ!
September 8, 2017

Dear Blackhawk School District Families,

In an effort to protect our students, many of whom have food allergies, we are asking that all snacks brought in for distribution to the students be pre-packaged store bought items. We are also asking that you provide the original packaging, including ingredient list to your classroom teachers. This way, the teachers can address any allergies that are in the classroom and see to it that students with allergies do not receive items that may cause an allergic reaction.

This includes any snacks that are served during the classroom parties as well. All snacks, both those served during the party or sent home must be pre-packaged store bought items.

Also, we ask that no preparation of food items be done as part of the classroom parties. Again, this is an effort to keep all students safe and protected from any possibly food contamination issues or allergic reactions.

Again, this is an effort to keep our children safe. Any questions may be directed to me at (724)846-6600 x1016 or

Cherie Fleischman
Food Service Director
Parents / Students and Staff -- please mark your calendars! The 2017-18 Homecoming DANCE will now be held on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13 and the Homecoming FOOTBALL GAME will be held on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14.

If you received a letter from the district that your child still needs an immunization or a copy of proof of the immunization - PLEASE submit this information to your child's school ASAP.

Your child will NOT be permitted to enter the school classroom on the first day of school (August 22, 2017) without written documentation.

Emergency Practice Drill Information

The Blackhawk School District is committed to ensuring the safety of all of our students, teachers, and staff. We continually update, review, practice, and implement safety procedures, security guidelines and emergency operation plans.

During these drills and any other time of the year, you will see emergency personnel at the building to ensure safety. Additionally, we invite the Police and Fire Departments to be actively involved in the school community and present in our building.
