April 8th, 2021. Hello Blue Valley Families, I need to apologize for the short notice on this, time has gotten away from me. I wanted to let you know that we will be having an Archery Club meeting for the kids, today after school from 3:30-4:30. I know this is short notice and if the kids can't attend it is not a big deal. I went through the classrooms this morning to share the opportunity with the kids and asked them to reach out to parents because there is no transportation home after the meeting. We will be sending out a schedule once we can talk about dates. Archery is not in competition with other school activities such as track, robotics or scholars bowl. It is meant to be a fun activity for kids that they can participate in while they are doing the other activities. Our plan is to have Archery one (1) time per week and maybe a Saturday morning as well so those who do other activities can still participate. Please contact me with any questions you may have.

MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT March 19, 2021 Good Morning Blue Valley Families, I received an email this week from KDOT that will impact transportation to and from school starting April 5th through the June 1st. Here is what I received: KDOT has a contractor that will be milling and overlaying K-16 and are planning to start the project April 5th. The contractor’s plan is to start at the US-77/K-16 junction (Randolph) and proceed east toward Blaine, KS. The project should be completed around June 1st timeframe. The contractor will be using a pilot car with flaggers, for traffic control purposes through the work zone. A typical work zone is roughly 2.5-4 miles. There will be delays to traffic up to 15 minutes. I will send updates as I received them.

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT 2-10-2021 Hello Blue Valley families, I hope everyone is staying warm. We recently completed a survey of leadership in USD 384. I wanted to share the results with you. The staff had the opportunity to rate the building level leadership as well as district level leadership. A survey was also sent to the community to rate district level leadership. After the results were compiled, I reviewed the data and shared it with the Board of Education. I am pleased with the results. There is always room to improve and get better. The feedback we received will be used to make adjustments and get better. Overall the Middle/High School Leadership survey had 6 responses with an average leadership rating of 4.25 out of a possible 5. The Elementary School Leadership survey had 8 responses with an average leadership rating of 4.28 out of a possible 5. The District Level Leadership survey completed by the staff had 23 responses. The ratings were Excellent, Good, Needs Improvement and Unacceptable. The survey results were 28.96% Excellent, 64.25%, Good 6.75% Needs Improvement and 0 Unacceptable. The District Level Leadership survey completed by the community had 44 responses. The survey results were 35.9% Excellent, 50% Good, 13.64% Needs Improvement and 0.46% Unacceptable. (The link for the results is at the bottom of this message.) As you see we are doing pretty well with areas that need improvement. This year has been challenging on many levels. I feel very confident as we move forward, we will get better and make Blue Valley USD 384 the best it can be. Thank you all for your support this year. IT’S A GOOD DAY TO BE A RAM!! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1FFDOOEb0BsuUkX2LG2ssaeSUd4q_oDd8SN52xc1Fm4o/edit?usp=sharing
