Update from Superintendent 8-26-2020. Hello everyone, I have decided to cancel middle school and high school football practice until we receive further results from ongoing testing. We are doing this as a precaution at this time. The Health Department has provided guidance as to proper procedures in this situation and we are taking their advice. I will keep you posted.

UPDATE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT 8-26-2020 Hello everyone, This is not the way we wanted to start the year, but it is the time in which we are living through. We had a confirmed case of COVID in the Blue Valley School District. A staff member notified me this morning that they tested positive. I am sending out this message to let everyone know that we have cleaned and sanitized the areas where the staff member had been. The staff member indicated there was no direct contact with anyone within the 6 foot social distance guideline for longer than 10 minutes. As a precaution, we have made phone calls to those who may have had extended time with the staff member to monitor for symptoms. This message is being sent as part of the guidance from the Riley County Health Department. Please monitor for: Fever (100.4 or higher) Chills Muscle aches Fatigue Headache Sore throat Difficulty breathing Loss of taste or smell If you have or someone in your family has symptoms, contact your doctor immediately and then the Blue Valley District Office at 785-293-5256.

UPDATE FROM SUPERINTENDENT'S OFFICE 8-25-20 School Starts tomorrow the 26th!!! We are so excited!! With that come a few reminders or updates. Buses: If you ride the bus, your driver should have made contact with you with details of the route. Because of COVID and bus requirements, students that live in the City will walk to school or be a car rider. Preschool students should be dropped off by their parent/guardian unless arrangements have been previously made with the school. The doors open to the buildings at 7:45. Remember there will be a screening procedures in place when entering the building. Make sure to leave yourself plenty of time. See You Soon!!! GO RAMS!!

Here is a link to the full document that was sent out yesterday. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yjLRycH3CpU0ztYEY5gP_TGjjVZ5h6XW/view?usp=sharing We are doing our best to send out information as quickly as we can and sometime the media gets the information out before we can.

UPDATE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT 8-18-2020 Hello Blue Valley Families, I want to bring everyone up to speed. I have heard the rumors and false reports about COVID-19 as it relates to USD 384 Blue Valley Schools. In an effort to be as transparent as possible, I want to let you all know that we have had positive cases in our District. Those cases have been identified, tested, quarantined and all close contacts with those cases have been notified either by email or by phone. The Riley County Health Department has been contacted and given us guidance every step of the way. The District has identified areas of exposure and contact in each building. Our custodial staff continues to cleans and sanitize the buildings following recommended procedures. As we continue to work through a situation that changes daily, decisions are made everyday to make sure we are making school as safe and healthy as we possibly can. Our goal is to get school open and for it to be a safe environment for students to learn. We understand that this virus makes everyone uncomfortable at some level. I want to reassure you that we take this virus seriously, that we are as transparent as we can be in the moment and that information is being shared with the community as we can. With that in mind, because we can contact trace locations where cases have been in the buildings, we are closing those areas of our buildings so they can be cleaned and sanitized thoroughly. We will continue to have athletic practices as long as it is safe to do so. Coaches have been asked to continue with the safety protocols and procedures they have been using to ensure as safe an environment as we can have. If a student does not come to practice because of safety/health concerns, missing practice should not be held against them, but all KSHSAA guidelines for practices before playing will be met before the student athlete can participate fully. Please contact the coach to discuss any concerns you may have. We appreciate your continued support in this uncertain time. Thank you for allowing us to continue to serve the families or our amazing District. Go RAMS!!!

UPDATE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT 8-5-2020 Hi Blue Valley Community, We are getting closer to the final reopening plan being submitted to the Board for approval on 8-10. The plan has been revised several times at this point as changes have occurred. Parents will have the option of an onsite learning model or a remote learning model. A Google Form will be sent out next week, once the plan is approved for parents to indicate the learning model they want their student(s) to start the 20-21 school year in. We will continue to follow all orders and guidance from KSDE, KDHE, CDC, and local and state orders. Blue Valley is committed to ensuring a safe and supportive learning environment for all students. GO RAMS!!!!
