Blue Valley is looking forward to welcoming students back to school. Student health and safety are top priorities this fall. The information provided here gives details about the modifications to the in-person setting students and families should expect this fall. While comprehensive, this information is also subject to change based on local health officials’ guidance.

  • As the year progresses and based activity of the COVID-19 virus in our community, the in-person setting may adjust. Students in the in-person setting may also experience three recommended learning modes—In-Person Learning, Hybrid (limiting capacity) and Distance Learning.

    In-person school will be with modifications to the physical space and learning experiences.

    High school students can take virtual courses in conjunction with their in-person courses as they have in the past. Students who choose this option should be aware that enrollment will be limited by the space available at their home school and within the VirtualED courses. For detailed information, go to the registration page or click on the information button below.

    In the event the Blue Valley is in the yellow gating criteria level or orange gating criteria level, the hybrid (limiting capacity) could be used as a learning mode. A hybrid model combines the In-Person Learning with Modifications model and at-home learning. Students enrolled in VirtualED will continue with VirtualED. For more information about the hybrid model (limited capacity), go to the hybrid web page.

    In the event that Johnson County community transmission rates are in the orange gating criteria level, the distance learning model is the suggested learning mode for grades 6-12 in-person learning students and in the red gating criteria level the distance learning model is the suggested learning mode for all in-person learning students (PK-12). This experience will be different than the spring and more comparable to the full Blue Valley experience. Students enrolled in VirtualED will continue with VirtualED. During periods of distance learning, students will be in the same courses with the same teachers as their in-person schedule. More information about Distance Learning
