News and Announcements

Guidelines for home football games

Blackwell CISD is asking all people who voluntarily attend Hornet athletic events to abide by the Governor's executive orders.

Hand sanitizer and wipes will be available for usage and located at the concession stand. Blackwell CISD staff will not be policing masks or social distancing but rather, asking adults to be responsible in their choices for themselves and their children.

In accordance with UIL guidelines, only essential people are allowed on the track or field of play. Essential means coaches, players, managers, and cheerleaders. Parents are not allowed onto the field after the game.

Blackwell School App

We have started to use the School News app by Edlio, an activity feed for consuming alerts, news, and events for participating schools. It’s a simple way to view the school’s news feeds and calendars, and also receive push notifications directly from us.
It’s free to download to your iOS or Android phone and quick to set up:

Go to the App Store or Google Play and search for “School News by Edlio” to install.
Open the app and search for the school; tap “Add School.” If you have kids in other Edlio-powered schools, add them to the app too.
Enable push notification by going to the Alerts tab and tapping “Enable Notifications.”

All of the news and events posted to our website are posted here for easy access. You can also add multiple Edlio-powered schools to gather all news, events, and alerts in this one app. We’ll send push notifications out to keep you updated on urgent news.
