Back to Buildings Plan
After closing our schools in March 2020 because of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Bellevue School District pivoted to online learning for our students. Starting in September 2020, we started a gradual return of some students to our buildings. Then on January 21, 2021, we started bringing back some of our youngest learners for in-person learning. Now we plan to offer in-person learning to all our students, on a hybrid schedule, by April 19. The resilience of students, staff, and families during this last year is a testament to our community’s ability to face challenges and come together.
Our buildings are ready to bring more students and staff back. We have proper personal protective equipment (PPE) and proven risk mitigation. And for students not ready to return to the classroom, we will continue to offer remote learning.
Back to Buildings Update: This week’s message to families includes information about planning for the 2021-22 school year, the Bellevue Virtual Academy, enrolling in kindergarten and preschool for the fall, and more.
Hybrid Secondary School Schedule: We are excited to provide you with an update regarding the schedule for middle and high schools for the remainder of the year.
In-Person by the Numbers
We now have more than 4,000 students learning in-person, including students at all elementary schools and secondary students in CTE classes, athletics, band, and orchestra. Our safety protocols – masks, physical distancing, school building air flow, increased cleaning – are working.
