Since it's opening in 1993, Blue Valley Northwest High School has made a solid commitment to support drug and alcohol free programs for students throughout the year, with the major events held on the evenings of Prom and Graduation.
Here's why these parties are important. Nationally, more high school age students are injured or killed between the hours of 10:00 pm and 4:00 am in May and June than during any other time of year. These tragedies all too frequently occur after spring prom and after graduation. As you might expect, alcohol and drugs are generally involved. Since the advent of parent and community-sponsored alcohol and drug-free parties across the nation, there is clear evidence that countless tragedies have been averted. And that's not all.
The students love the parties! That's right! These big events are looked forward to with great anticipation! In fact, attendance is traditionally clost to 90%.
