A Blue Valley student is calling for the school district to take more strides toward positive inclusion of Jewish and other minority students in response to antisemitic and racist graffiti found spraypainted on Blue Valley High’s football stadium on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Blue Valley senior Emma Sandler, who is Jewish and also a youth leader with local nonprofit SevenDays, says she wants more education and discussion in schools about antisemitism and racism, which she says have been a long-standing problems not only in the Blue Valley School District but in the surrounding community, as well.
