Please remember to follow IDPH guidelines when in attendance at any extracurricular activities. If you are unable to maintain a distance of 6 feet from those not in your household when you are outside, please wear a face mask. This reminder comes now because we were notified of a spectator from another school who has tested positive for Covid-19. It is in the best interest of our student athletes, for all spectators to follow these guidelines so that it does not jeopardize our ability to continue playing. As always, if you are not feeling well or develop symptoms, please stay home and away from others.

Regular school dismissal will be 3:10 pm. Car rider pick up will be similar to last year in that you will enter from Chestnut Street (around the curve). One difference is that we are going to have two lanes of traffic. Those picking up students in grades K-2 will be the inside lane which will be closest to the school. K-2 students will be coming out the doors on the west end of the building, so you will stop at the sidewalk by the corner of the building. Those picking up students in grades 3-5 will use the outside lane. Students in grade 3-5 will be walked out the front entrance by the elementary gym that we have used in the past. These lanes of traffic will will continue down the front of the building. There will be a staff member outside directing traffic. If you have a child in grades 6-8, please park in the lot closest to the grade school office and those students will make their way out to the car. Those picking up high school students should park in the angled parking in front of the high school entrance. If you have multiple grade levels to pick up, get in the line of the youngest child and please tell a staff member so they can direct you where to go next. Please be patient with the process as we adjust and work keep the kids safe through the dismissal process. #herewego

As we are about to begin a new school year, we have no idea what the future may hold. We have very strategic plans in place to limit they amount of contact any child will have with another. Parents, rest assured as your children would most likely be exposed to more people in a grocery than throughout the day at school. All of this is to help ensure proper social distancing. As we begin Monday, we hope our plan will allow our students to attend in person because feel that is vitally important for children. However, if at some point we are forced to shift to remote learning, we are much better prepared than last time. At the opening staff meeting, I shared a new moto with the staff for the year, #herewego. We don't know what the future holds but, #herewego.

I wanted to pass along a quick update with our meal program. We are scheduled to wrap up the "school year" program with our last delivery on Wednesday, May 20. This day will include six days of meals (20, 21, 22, 25, 26, & 27). We had intended to begin our summer program with a pick up on Mondays. However, due to available food deliveries, the first day for summer meal pick up will be Thursday, May 28. From there moving forward, we will receive our food deliveries on Wednesdays, so meal pick up will have to occur on Wednesday each week beginning at 11:00 on June 3. If this causes an issue for you, please let us know. Also, if you would like to still sign up, please call the school or complete this form. https://forms.gle/LX78fD44XPcHnMmq6

We received the following information from ISBE: I am passing this along for any families who may want to take advantage. With our CEP program (free breakfast/lunch) all families who live in the Bluford school district would be eligible for this. Pandemic EBT Application Available The Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) launched the Pandemic EBT application for families on May 1 at https://abe.illinois.gov/abe/access/. P-EBT is a new special benefit that can help families buy food for their school age children who would normally receive National School Lunch Program (NSLP) free or reduced-priced meals when schools are in session. All families with school age children who attend schools approved for Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) are eligible for the benefits as they receive NSLP meals at no charge. Families that currently receive SNAP benefits do not need to apply for P-EBT benefits. These additional P-EBT benefits will be loaded into Illinois LINK EBT accounts along with regular SNAP benefits. Families who do not currently receive SNAP benefits but do have children who receive NSLP free or reduced-priced meals will need to apply directly with IDHS. The fastest way for families to receive benefits is to complete the application for P-EBT available online (Click “Apply for Benefits” at the link.) A paper application in English and Spanish is also available and can be submitted by email to DHS.FCS.PEBT@illinois.gov. IDHS created a flyer to help families with the application process. We are asking NSLP sponsors to share this flyer with their families.

For many of us with younger children at home the thought of "teaching" reading is scary. The link below provides a short framework to help with the disruption we are experiencing. One thing to remember is as your child is reading to you don't let them guess words. Have them implement the phonic strategies their teachers have taught them. They can go back and sound it out. If they can't, simply say the correct word for them. https://righttoreadproject.com/2020/04/07/the-abcs-of-teaching-reading-at-home/

The high school cheer coach position has been posted since October 15. As of now, we have not received any interest in the position. The boys basketball season begins on November 11, so we are nearing the point at which we would not be able to offer the cheer program if we do not have a coach. If you have any interest, please contact the school at 732-6121.

Parents: We have continued to follow up with our photo company in regards to the grade school pictures from August 23. The company has a technical glitch which they are trying to fix. We have been informed that the company is going to process refunds tomorrow and has remained committed to still printing the photos which have been ordered. Unfortunately, they do not have a timeline for when the photos will be printed. If you have issues receiving your refund, please let administration know and we will continue to pursue that. Hopefully soon, they will figure out how to print the photos and we will receive those as well.
