Big picture

Have you registered your child for the 2020-21 school year?

Registration continues to be open for In-Person Learning with modifications. This option places a priority on creating a safe learning and working environment for staff and students. Based on the activity of COVID-19 in our community, In-Person Learning students may experience periods of:

  • Hybrid (limiting capacity) Model: In the event that state or county health officials enact gating criteria to reduce total building occupancy, Blue Valley would move to a hybrid model. A hybrid model combines the In-Person Learning with Modifications model and at-home learning. In this model, students would follow an AA/BB schedule. Learn more about this model on the Hybrid web page.

  • Distance Learning: In the event of school or district building closure, learning will move to an online format and there will be a period of Distance Learning. This experience will be different than the spring and more comparable to the full Blue Valley experience. Learn more on the Distance Learning web page.


Please note the In-Person Learning is the default option during registration. For more information, visit the Back to School registration web page or to begin registration visit the Registration web page.

VirtualED to welcome 6,000+ students for 2020-21 school year

Updated schedule, information about Hybrid Model

In the event that state or county health officials enact gating criteria to reduce total building occupancy, Blue Valley would move to a hybrid (limiting capacity) model for In-Person Learning students. A hybrid model combines In-Person Learning with Modifications with at-home learning. In this model, students would follow an AA/BB schedule with a distance learning day for all In-Person Learning students. Families can anticipate further communication about this model from principals to assist with preparation if the district were to utilize a Hybrid model to limit capacity and reduce overall in-person student attendance.


New! Based on feedback, an adjustment was made to the Hybrid Model schedule to provide more predictability for student attendance days. The updated schedule will allow families to plan for attendance days, at-home learning days and distance learning days. The new Hybrid schedule for students will be as follows:


GROUP A: LAST NAMES A-L

***Based on the last name of the oldest child in the family

  • Monday: In-Person Learning
  • Tuesday: In-Person Learning
  • Wednesday: Distance Learning for all students
