We know that navigating this pandemic has been incredibly difficult for families. We recognize that parents and guardians across our state and nation have been presented with heart-wrenching decisions, not only having to consider the best ways to protect them from the unseen threat of COVID-19, but also supporting and nurturing their mental wellness and academic growth during this difficult time.
The Boulder Valley School District has put our students and families at the center of our efforts.
Since the beginning of the crisis, we’ve served more than 800,000 meals, thousands of backpacks full of supplies, students who needed it got computers so they can learn from home and have worked tirelessly to ensure that everyone has internet connectivity. Even during this difficult time, our focus has been on equity, to ensure that our students in need receive the support they need. You can learn more about our response at
This school year, we have taken a slow and careful approach to returning students, basing our Back Together BVSD reintroduction plans on the best advice of our partners in public health. We have a layered approach to health precautions, which are outlined at bvsd.org/health-precautions.
Our priority has been protecting our students and staff, while also opening opportunities for in-person learning – knowing how important that in-person instruction, support and interactions are for our students.
BVSD’s outstanding and innovative educators are doing an excellent job of meeting the challenge during this crisis, whether they are teaching students in-person, remotely or, in some cases, both. And even during this crisis, they have continued the work outlined in our All Together for All Students strategic plan (bvsd.org/strategic-plan), which aims to Ignite our students’ passion for learning through challenging and relevant educational opportunities, Equip students who may not have the skills or access to opportunities needed to succeed, so that they can Soar regardless of what pathway they take after school.
This Open Enrollment period will be unlike any other. Due to the pandemic, our schools will not be hosting their typical in-person tours. Instead, they are ready and excited to meet prospective students and families and will be offering virtual opportunities to get to know the school and their teams. We encourage you to check out their websites and contact them for more information. The contact information for every Boulder Valley school is at: bvsd.org/our-schools.
Our team is here to support you throughout our open enrollment period which goes from Monday, November 2nd through Wednesday, January 6th.
