Student health and safety is the primary concern for all Blackie School staff. In events of severe weather students will be permitted and/or required to stay indoors during regularly scheduled outdoor activities (recess or lunch periods). The decision as to what constitutes severe weather is at the discretion of the Principal.
Families are expected to send their children to school dressed appropriately for the weather and the duration of time spent outside (20 minutes for lunch recess/ 40 minutes for outdoor phys ed). Unless an indoor recess is called students will be expected to take part in outdoor activities. Typically, students will be outside in cold weather up to and including -20C (including the windchill) but each instance is looked at with a variety of factors involved.
Notes on Translation
The electronic translation service is hosted by Google Translate. The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 50 languages, although an impressive number, this does not capture all languages or dialects. The basic translation’s goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material.
The Cobb County School District does not guarantee the quality, accuracy or completeness of any translated information. Before you act on translated information, the District encourages you to confirm any facts that are important to you and affect any decisions you may make.
The Cobb County School District is committed to parent, family and community engagement, and it is our hope that by providing this tool on our website that we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English and thereby enabling better engagement in public education.
