• The safety of Blue Valley students and staff continues to be a top priority. In an effort to keep our school communities fully informed, the district will provide weekly updates indicating confirmed positive COVID-19 cases as reported to the school/district by school, as well as a district overview. The district works closely with the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE) to determine next steps when cases arise in a school/building.


    • Dashboard data is collected at mid-day on Wednesdays. The information reflects district-wide and school-specific data from the prior week (Wednesday to Wednesday).

    • In order to best protect privacy, we will combine student and staff data and will not include identifying information about the individuals who test positive.

    • A web page is dedicated to each high school feeder area that includes individual school data.

    • Blue Valley’s COVID dashboard only reflects confirmed positive COVID-19 cases. Presumed positive cases are not be reflected in dashboard numbers.


    Between the dates of June 22 and August 31, Blue Valley’s total number of COVID-19 positive cases was 40.


    Blue Valley will update the number of new cases by school and the district as a whole on Fridays. The data reflects the number of reported and confirmed COVID-19 positive cases.
