Our Vision

We strive for 100% success for every bearcat. We aim to get there by creating a welcoming school culture with high expectations and offering instruction at a level that will guide each student to success. Together with families and our community, we aim to meet the needs of all learners in order to get outstanding academic results.

Reopening for the Fall

At Valley View, the health and safety of our students, families and staff members are our top priority as we return to school this fall. BCPS will begin the year with in-person instruction for grades K-5, where we feel risk can be effectively reduced with added health and safety measures. We believe our reopening plan represents the best possible balance between ensuring that your student can continue to learn and minimizing the risk of the spread of COVID-19 in our community.


The Virtual Academy Option

All enrolled students have the option to sign up for an all-virtual school option called the BCPS Virtual Academy. (If your student is new to BCPS, click here to enroll first.)

This option is for families who would prefer that their children participate in school online only for the entire first semester of the 2020-21 school year. If you'd like to opt your student into Virtual Academy for the first semester of the 2020-21 school year, please sign up by Friday, August 14 so that we can make the proper arrangements for the school year!


At Home Newsletter Information

We are very excited to kick off our virtual learning opportunities for our students. All students will login through their assigned Google Classroom. Please find the classroom code for your child's homeroom teacher and login to see what work for the week is included. Your child's teacher will be in contact with more information. You may not recognize the phone number, since they are calling from a Google Voice number from home. Here are the class codes for Google Classroom:
