Hi Superintendent Brady Burton. This afternoon Governor Kelly announced she will be advancing the State to Phase 2 ahead of schedule starting May 22. She also announced by moving things up a week, the final Phase Out will now begin June 22 instead of June 29. So, this means we can now plan to again have graduation on June 27 at 3:00PM at the BVHS new gym. If the Governor's plan changes again, I will let you know. The graduation alternate date is still in place for July 18, if needed. Take care and Go Rams!
On Monday May 18, students will be receiving their awards from bus driver/teacher. Please return any textbooks and library books at this time. Crome books and their power cord need to be brought to BVHS on Thursday, May 21 from 6-7 pm. Thank you.
Hi Superintendent Brady Burton. Things have changed again concerning our COVID19 guidelines. Based on yesterdays Governor Kelly's press conference, she has now enacted Phase 1.5 in her plan to reopen Kansas. Basically, everything has been delayed or pushed back two more weeks. Due to this change, we will NOT be able to have graduation on June 27. Graduation will now be planned for Saturday, July 18, 3:00PM, BVHS New Gym. Please keep in mind, this could also change depending on what happens with COVID 19 over the next six weeks. Right now, the Phase Out of the COVID19 plan that takes off all restrictions is scheduled to begin on June 29. Take care and Go Rams!

Hi, superintendent Brady Burton. Today, Governor Kelly extended her "stay at home" executive order through May 3, due to COVID 19.

Families will remain in their vehicles as they do a curbside pick-up of their kindergarten information packets and meet Mrs. Dreith, Mrs. Innes, Mrs. Hoeltzel and Mr. Burton.

Hi, Superintendent Brady Burton, I hope everyone is doing well. We are into our second week of continuous learning for students and things seem to being going pretty well. A couple of reminders, since we are following our district calendar, Friday, April 10, and Monday, April 13, are NO school days. So, there will be no meals served on those two days and student learning packets will be delivered and picked up on Tuesday, April 14. I appreciate the time you are spending helping your children with their school work and making them feel safe and secure during this time of uncertainty. It truly is a family and school partnership working together to make the best experience possible for our Blue Valley kids! Take care and have a good Easter.
Hi Superintendent Brady Burton. Just a reminder we are following the USD#384 District Calendar for the remainder of this school year. We have no school scheduled on Friday, April 10 and Monday, April 13 due to Easter. So, student learning packets for that week will be picked-up and delivered on Tuesday, April 14.

Hi, Superintendent Brady Burton. Just a reminder we are back in school tomorrow, only from home!

BVMS students will each be receiving a delivered assignment packet along with information by email. The McCormick Elementary students will be receiving information through their class DOJO along with each student will be receiving a delivered assignment packet. All student packets will be delivered and picked up on Monday mornings between 8:30AM to 10:30AM to your home by our bus drivers, unless other arrangements have already been made to pick up/deliver packets to the district office. It will be the parents responsibility to help make needed resources available to help your students with their school work. Together, school and home, we will make the next seven weeks the best education situation we can for your student(s). Thank you and go Rams!
Hi, Superintendent Brady Burton. Governor Kelly announced this morning she is enacting a state-wide Stay At Home Order for all Kansas counties beginning Monday through April 19. Again, schools are considered essential, so there will be very little change in the the guidelines we are currently functioning under. Stay healthy and at home if possible.
Hi, Superintendent Brady Burton. Today at 4:15PM the Riley County Health Department issued an "Stay At Home Order," for Riley County starting at 12:01AM Sunday through April 11, to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. According to Governor Kelly's executive order No. 20-15, schools are exempted from the Riley County Health Department's order No. 3, "Stay At Home," because we are considered an essential function and a necessary activity. Our continuous learning plan and the serving of lunch will continue as it has been. Really, nothing changes for us, other than I encourage all of our teachers to try to do as much as possible to carry out our continuous learning plan from their homes. Further information on the Stay At Home Order can be found on the Riley County Health Department's website.
Just a few reminders from High School Principal Marion Mazouch: Continuous learning will start on March 30. We will have several resources posted to our district website for high school parents and guardians that explain the organization of our Continuous Learning. The resources are Continuous Learning Expectations for High School Parents, How students can log in and use ZOOM, and A Parents' Guide to Google Classroom. All students need to log into Google Classroom before March 30 and accept their teachers’ invitations to Google Classroom. Parents wanting guardian access to Google Classroom need to send their gmail address to each of their child’s teachers. If they do not have a gmail address, then they will need to sign up for one to gain access to Google Classroom. Parents not wishing to have access to Google Classroom do not need to do this. Each of your student’s teachers will be contacting you via email some time this weekend to let you know the format of their classes for March 30 to April 3. If your student is receiving a packet for any of their classes, then those will be delivered to in-district students by bus drivers on Monday morning, March 30. Out of district students will need to pick up packets from the district office starting Monday, March 30 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you cannot pick up the packet on Monday, then the district office hours are Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is a new beginning for all of us and it will take some time to get in a schedule. Please be patient as we implement this plan and provide grace to everyone involved. Stay well.
Hi, Superintendent Brady Burton. A few statewide COVID-19 updates, there are currently 168 confirmed coronavirus cases in 25 Kansas counties. The median age of those infected is age 54. It's felt we are still three weeks away from the peak cases. On the positive side we fed 208 kids lunch today and many parents and students picked up their personal items from school. Items can still be picked up tomorrow morning. Teachers are working to complete our student's continuous learning plan which will begin Monday morning with the delivery of learning packets to homes. I'm meeting tomorrow morning with our bus drivers to complete the logistics of using them to deliver and pick-up packets every Monday morning. We hope your families are doing well and staying healthy. Have a good evening.
Hi, Superintendent Brady Burton. A friendly reminder, if you plan on picking up lunch and breakfast sacks for your children at one of our pick up points, you need to email in your confirmation form each day by 9:00AM. We have been short meals due to people forgetting to turn in their confirmations. Thank you for your help with this. We will start our continuous learning plan with students Monday. Mr. Mazouch has sent out information to BVHS and BVMS students/parents about how the learning material's packets will be delivered and picked up and the MES teachers have contacted their classroom parents with this same information. The staff has put in a tremendous amount of time in developing and implementing this learning plan. There has been many obstacles and logistically items to overcome to make this successful. I hope parents will be flexible and supportive in making this work. Don't forget student's personal items are to be picked up from school tomorrow and Friday morning. Thank you.
On Monday between 8:30am and 10:30am, all ms students and any high school students not doing on line assignments will be receiving a packet of assignments for the week from a bus driver or teacher. On Monday April 6 same time, students will again be given a new packet and will turn in the packet from previous week. Thank you for your cooperation. Marion Mazouch

Hi, Superintendent Brady Burton. As of 4:00PM today, Governor Kelly is closing all public schools in the state of Kansas through the remainder of the school year. There will be a state wide continuous learning plan for all of our students starting March 30 that they will be expected to participate in for continued learning. This is being developed and I will have more information on this plan next week. All spring KSHSAA activities have been cancelled and all remaining Blue Valley trips, programs, activities, etc. are cancelled. I am also in the process of getting a KSDE waiver so we can feed our kids lunch and breakfast, Monday Thur Friday, at no cost to parents for the remainder of the school year starting March 23. The food will be picked up each day from a drive up line at BVHS and MES from 11:00 to 12:00PM. More information of this later in the week. I know everyone has questions, I will keep you informed on a daily basis and try to give you more answers as I get answers from the KSDE and as I have the time to plan things through. Thank you and hang in there. More information tomorrow.
Hi, Superintendent Brady Burton. The latest information on the Coronavirus looks like we will be out of school next week and possibly longer. The Blue Valley staff and I are going to start working on extended learning opportunities for all of our students if this happens. More information on this at the end of this week.Stay healthy and keep praying for the best. Thanks.
Hi, Superintendent Brady Burton. As of 4:00PM today, KSDE Commissioner Randy Watson, has requested all school districts in Kansas close for the upcoming week of March 16-20, for the safety of kids and staff due to the Coronavirus. So, Blue Valley schools will be closed March 16-20, only essential staff will be present. A decision by the KSDE will be made late next week about the status of school for the following week. No activities or practices will be allowed during the closing. I will keep you informed as I receive new information. Thank you and stay healthy.
Due to area school closings and concerns for COVID-19 the MS scholars bowl meets for Monday and Thursday of this week have been cancelled. The early release for HS students on Thursday March 19 at 1:53 is also canceled. Track practice is still scheduled for MS/HS students starting tomorrow after school from 3:30 to 5pm.
Hi, Superintendent Brady Burton. I just was informed the Riley County school district is being shut down until March 30 by the Riley County Health Department even though they do NOT have a confirmed case of the Coronavirus. From what I was told the Health Department has received many concerns from the RC parents and staff on their proximity to Manhattan and the decision was made for that reason.When a school district is shut down without a confirmed case of the coronavirus they will have to make up the days missed. The Blue Valley Schools remain open and the plans are to still be in session Monday morning, March 16. I will keep you updated if this changes. Thank you.
Hi, Superintendent Brady Burton. Nothing has changed with the status of school at Blue Valley, we have NO confirmed cases of the Coronavirus with either students or staff. Only the county health department, KSDHE or the Governor can order a school district to close due to a health concern. We do plan to have school Monday, March 16 and are taking every precaution to keep everyone healthy. Starting March 15, the weight room and all school facilities will be locked down for public use. Parents do have the right to keep their children home from school, but the students are responsible for picking up and turning in their homework for class credit. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter and rest assured we are following all the guidelines to keep your children as safe as possible. See you Monday.
Hi, Superintendent Brady Burton. The Riley County Health Department has decided to shut down the Manhattan Public Schools until March 30 due to their proximity to KSU and Ft. Riley and the fear of the Coronavirus. Manhattan USD does not have any confirmed cases. Blue Valley, Riley County and Rock Creek schools are not effected by this decision and all plan to have school Monday, March 16. Again, only the county health department or the State of Kansas can shut down a school district due to health concerns. As always, a parent can choose to keep their student(s) home from school but if school is in session students will be responsible for picking up and completing all classroom work. I will keep you posted if there is any new information on this matter. Thank you.
Hi superintendent Brady Burton, I want to again let everyone know, school is scheduled to resume as normal Monday, March 16. We will immediately notify you if this changes based on the direction of our county health departments and the KSDH. The Kansas State Department of Education is keeping all school districts up to date on any changes. Currently, there are zero cases of the Coronavirus in Kansas schools. If school is cancelled due to a confirmed case of the Coronavirus it will probably stay closed for 14 days but that will be up to our local health department’s guidance and you will be notified of specific plans of making up school, etc. at that time. Again, school is still scheduled to resume Monday unless notified different. Parents always have the right to keep your students home if you feel more comfortable. Thank you.
Hi, this is superintendent Brady Burton. I just finished a Zoom Meeting with the Kansas Department of Education. There are no current cases if Coronavirus in Kansas school districts. Only the County Health Department or the Kansa State Department of Health can close a school district. As of today, all schools will remain open. I will keep you updated if things change. Parents always have the right to keep their children home. For now all Kansas School Districts remain open. Thank you.
Correction to last post. Early release for HS student will be Thursday March 19 at 1:53 and not April 19. Thank you.
