Back to School Update (NEW)
With yesterday's announcement that we will be starting school in a distance learning mode, I am sure you have many new questions. Please watch for more information to follow in the upcoming week that will apply to all students (those who selected the in person or virtual option).
I will be sharing important information regarding when and how to access student schedules, pick up Chromebooks (for new students and incoming 6th graders), pick up school supplies that were ordered from EPI, and much more.
Remember that with the adoption of new gaiting criteria, families may elect to change their mode of learning (in-person or virtual) from Monday, August 24th to Wednesday, August 26th at 4 PM. This is a strict deadline so please do not miss out on this opportunity. Contact the school directly by calling 913-239-5400.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Dr. Trent Stern

6th Grade Orientation (UPDATE)
Please Pay Student Fees to Complete the Registration Process
Families, please remember to complete the registration process by paying student registrations fees. This is a critical step to ensure we have the appropriate staffing for both in-person and virtual education.
Completing registration now confirms that your child will attend school in September. Thank you for providing important information and parent permissions as part of the registration process. For more information about registration, visit www.bluevalleyk12.org/registration
PE Clothing Update
If you have already purchased clothing, please hang on to these in the event that things change; otherwise, do not purchase PE clothes for your child. Regrettably, we are not able to offer refunds at this time.
If you have questions or concerns about this current change, please reach out directly to Dr. Stern. Thank you for your understanding and our apologies for this change.
School Supply Lists (UPDATE)
The school supply lists are included for your convenience. If you have not yet purchased school supplies, I would encourage you to wait until after the first couple days of school to see what supplies your child will need, particularly with the news that we will start in a distance mode. I would offer the same advice for students who have selected VirtualEd.
