bloomfield school district lockdown August 23, 2019

Dear BSD Parents/Guardians,


Shortly after 12:00 PM today, Friday, August 23rd school administration was notified by Bloomfield Police Department of an attempted abduction of an adult female walking within town. Upon notification and as a precaution, school administrators placed our campus on an external lockdown.  Students at recess and also our seniors attending a lunch in the park were brought back inside the building. Students needing to leave will be escorted to their vehicles and parents needing to pick up their student will be required to contact the respective school office and their student will be escorted to the parent/guardian.


We would like to reassure parents our school was not targeted and our students and staff are safe.  Bloomfield School District will continue to follow our lockdown protocol through the end of school today.


Thank you for your time.

Welcome to the Bloomfield School District.  We serve grades PK-12 on one campus – which includes Bloomfield Elementary School (PK through Grade 6) and Bloomfield Jr.-Sr. High School (Grades 7-12).  Our students are pushed to learn and achieve academically through a variety of core curriculum and support services that meet the unique educational, social and emotional needs of each child.  Our faculty and staff work with students and their parents to provide quality educational opportunities in a structured, safe and supportive learning environment. 

As superintendent, I am proud of the opportunities our district continues to provide for our students. Last Fall, we launched our Engineering is Elementary curriculum in the Elementary School as we wish to inspire innovation in today's classrooms to engage students in discovering their inner engineer as they become lifelong STEM learners.  Bloomfield Jr.-Sr. High School was recently recognized as an Early College High School by the Center for Excellence in Leadership of Learning at the University of Indianapolis. Our students have an outstanding opportunity to earn college credits for little or no cost to parents. In August we will issue all students in grades 7-12 Lenovo 11E Chromebooks as we begin the 2nd year of our Digital Learning Initiative.  We support an active FFA which participates in state competitions, as well as a world class NJROTC program that was recognized as a Distinguished Unit for Area 3 during the 2018-19 school year.  

These are just a few examples of the wonderful activities taking place in our schools.  If you are interested in joining the Bloomfield community, please contact me directly at (812) 384-4507.  I would love to share with you all of the reasons why Bloomfield School District is a very special place. 

Educationally Yours,

Jeff Gibboney, Superintendent
