American Drug and Alcohol survey to be conducted

On March 31, students from grades 7-12 will be participating in the American Drug and Alcohol Survey in cooperation with the Tri-Ethnic Center of Colorado State University.

The funding for the administration of the survey comes from a federal grant awarded to the Tri-Ethnic Center, which allows the survey to be conducted at no cost to the school. Participation in the ADAS is voluntary. Parents that wish to withdraw their child from participation may do so by contacting Principal Wendy Templin at 835-5210.

In addition, a copy of the survey is available at the school for parents who would like to review it.

Blackduck High School believes that the participation in this survey will assist the school in planning, funding and evaluating drug and alcohol prevention programs.

Kindergarten roundup

The Blackduck School will be having their Spring Kindergarten Round-up and Registration March 25 from 10 a.m.-5: p.m. in the Elementary School, Room #10.

In order to enroll in Kindergarten for the 2011/2012 school year, a child must be five years old by Sept. 1, 2011. Please bring in a birth certificate to verify the date.

Minnesota Law requires a complete record of a child's immunizations to be on file at school before the child begins school. Please bring your child's immunization record with you when you come in for Kindergarten Round-up and Registration.

Minnesota Law also requires each child entering Kindergarten to have a developmental screening completed before starting Kindergarten. If your child has not been screened or if you are unsure, call the number listed below to set up a time during Kindergarten Round-up. An extra hour will be needed to do the Screening.

Anyone with a child in this age group who will be attending Blackduck School next fall and did not receive the Kindergarten Round-up letter, please call the Elementary office at 835-5300 or bring your child to the Kindergarten Round-up March 25.
