****Important update from the Superintendent - 1-17-22**** Hi Blue Valley families, School will be closed on Tuesday the 18th and Wednesday the 19 due to COVID-related issues. We will return to school on Thursday the 20th. This will allow us to get a handle on this situation. We currently have several student and staff member positive cases and many more close contacts that we are trying to manage. COVID has put a strain on us at work and home. No one can escape it. Please remember to be kind when responding to emails and texts from staff. We are doing the best we can with case management and communication to make everyone aware of what is going on. We will continue to play in the TVL high school basketball tournament as long as we can safely do so on our part. Please contact your coaches for details regarding information for student participation and testing requirements in the tournament.

Good Morning Ram Fam! We would love to pack the gym tonight with BLUE! Come out to support the HS basketball teams against Onaga and do some early (or last minute) Christmas shopping. The students of MES, BVMS, and BVHS have done a great job of creating and donating items for baskets. We have something for everyone! Dog Lovers, Movie Night, Game Night, Baking, and BBQ baskets. There will also be a 50/50 raffle by the MES STUCO. There will be taco salads and soft tacos being served at the concession stand by the HS Girls basketball team! All proceeds from the evening will go to help the Montgomery family with medical expenses from a recent accident. JV Boys will tip off at 4:45 p.m. in the Old Gym followed by 2 quarters of C-Team. Varsity Girls will begin in the New Gym at 6:00 p.m. followed by Varsity Boys.

****Message from the Superintendent***** 12-2-21 Good afternoon, I wanted to follow up about the concert tonight and the student’s wearing masks during the concert. I watched the rehearsal of each grade today and some songs were clear, and some were not. I asked Nurse Emily to come over and watch and advise on this as well. In order to give the kids and parents the best experience possible, we came up with a compromise on when to mask and when to not mask. While the kids are singing or speaking, they may take their masks down so they can be heard. When they are resting or waiting to perform, their masks will be up covering their mouth and nose. Bringing their masks down to perform is optional. Thank you for your continued support. See you tonight at the show! #RAMFAM
