The first day of school is Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2022 and staff are excited to welcome students back into the buildings! Hear a message from Superintendent Dr. Tonya Merrigan welcoming back families for the 2022-23 school year!
“To really see the whole community come together and do something big like this, it just reminds me of what a great school district this is… How in it we are together.”
Blue Valley hosted its annual Rally in the Valley Friday, Aug. 12. Rally in the Valley brings all staff together and energizes them for the return of our students. Our staff is beyond excited to have students back in the buildings starting Aug. 17, evident by the energy during the day!
We are better when we’re #BVTogether and this year's Rally in the Valley showed us why! Experience the atmosphere and hear from staff members in the video.

Game day atmosphere
Blue Valley high schools are excited to have your families come to support their high school activities and athletics this school year. We are asking our parent community to partner with us as we work to encourage a positive atmosphere for our high school games or events.
Sportsmanship/officials: We want to give our student athletes the opportunity to play as many games as possible and we need officials to make those games happen. With a local and national shortage of officials, we want to make sure officials continue to choose to work Blue Valley events. The number one way we can create a welcoming environment is for spectators, coaches and student athletes to be courteous and respect the official’s decisions.
Tailgating: Tailgating before games has become a tradition for many students and families. We love to see our community gathering together to enjoy food and tailgate games in our parking lots. As a reminder, alcohol and tobacco are not allowed on district property including parking lots.
Elementary and middle school students: We are asking that all elementary and middle school students enter the game with an adult and sit with that adult throughout the game. Please do not drop your child off at a district event without supervision as they will not be allowed to enter. It is challenging to monitor and keep all students safe without the help of our parent community.
Thank you for your help in making our district events a great experience for all who attend. We hope to see your family cheering for our Blue Valley teams this school year.
Join us in the classroom, in the lunchroom and in our schools to help us provide the best learning experience for our students. Blue Valley is seeking applications for the following support roles within our district:
Food Service workers
These positions offer flexible schedules, full benefits and retirement plans. If you are looking to make a positive impact in your community and in the lives of our children, we encourage you to apply for one of these support opportunities in the district, or share this information with someone you think would be a good fit to join our team. For more information and to apply for school-level openings, visit the Blue Valley employment website.
