In 2009, Blanco was closed down due to lack of enrollment and funds. This page will serve as a remembrance of our fine school.
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to our school! Please review the information in the Blanco School Guide and make a committment to become an involved parent during the 2008-2009 school year. I encourage you to take the time to volunteer in your child's classroom and to join the Blanco/Driftwood Boosters, who support many school projects and activities.
The adults at Blanco School have high expectations for all the students, both academically and behaviorally. Students at Blanco are expected to contribute to a safe, orderly and productive learning environment. Parents play a vital role in supporting our school-wide behavior management plan. Our goal is to create a warm, friendly and positive school climate by encouraging all the students to bring pride to themselves, their parents/guardians, their teachers and Blanco School.
I am so proud to be working with the finest teachers and staff, all dedicated to the well-being and education of your children.
Ruby Price, Principal
