The Red Ribbon Campaign, now the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, strives to empower students to make safe and smart decisions at all times. This year Red Ribbon week is Oct. 23-31. Red Ribbon week provides Blue Valley students and staff a great opportunity to unite to take a visible stand against drugs and make a commitment to living a drug-free lifestyle.
Mark your calendars! The Blue Valley Board of Education approved calendar modifications at its October meeting, which will ensure the 2015-16 school year ends before Memorial Day. Ensuring an end of the school year before Memorial Day has long been a desire of staff, parents and students. The changes impact the first and last day of school for the 2015-16 school year. The first day of the 2015-16 school year will be Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2015. The last day of the 2015-16 school year will be Thursday, May 26, 2016 if four emergency snow days are used. This will ensure the school district concludes before Memorial Day, May 30, 2016. No other changes were made to the 2015-16 calendar.
