Big picture

BV COVID Dashboard is LIVE!

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 provides weekly updates indicating confirmed positive COVID-19 cases as reported to the school/district on the BV COVID Dashboard. Cases are reported by district and school. In order to best protect privacy, we will combine students and staff data and will not include identifying information about the individuals who test positive.
