We invite all incoming freshmen to Blackford High School Freshman Orientation on August 7, 2018, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. We are excited to welcome the Class of 2022 to BHS! 

We Are Switching to Gmail

Over the summer, BCS finalized a move from Outlook e-mail to Google Mail (Gmail). Students currently have access to both Outlook e-mail and Gmail.

Outlook will be available until August 31, 2018. Gmail will not have any old e-mail from Outlook. If students have any important information, they should download any important attachments and copy/paste any important e-mails into a Google Document.

  • Outlook Log In
  • Student Gmail = gmail.blackfordschools.org
  • Username = Skyward username
  • Password = Skyward password
