Good Afternoon Bensley Families!

We need your help in preparing for an eventual, safe return to in-person instruction. Please read below for important opportunities for parents to provide feedback about their child(ren)’s plans.

The Chesterfield County School Board on Monday approved a virtual start to the 2020-21 school year. The Superintendent also shared a phased-in approach for the eventual re-entry of students into schools. That re-entry would be based on scientific data and public health recommendations, not previously provided guidance on how schools could run an operational aspect.

To prepare for the eventual return of students for in-person instruction, the school division requests ALL parents to update ParentVUE with several key pieces of student-related information. Parents will need to respond to EACH child they have in our school division. Please update this data by July 29. (Staff members will follow up by phone with those who do not complete this request.)

The questions include:

Whether you plan to send your child back to school when public health experts say it is safe to do so OR if your child will continue in a virtual learning environment for the entire school year even when school reopens. (Responses are binding for the first semester of school to ensure schools are staffed appropriately.)

How will your child get to school?

If your child will ride a school bus, are there alternate addresses from which they might be picked up?

The attached documents will walk you through where the questions are located and how to save your responses. Parents needing access to ParentVUE can review the attached document to register for log-in information. Parents with multiple students will only require one activation code and will see all of their students once they log in.

ParentVUE is a website or mobile app that provides parents the opportunity to update contact information, view attendance information, and access grades at the secondary level. Parents may use ParentVUE to update their email addresses and phone numbers at any time. Access to ParentVUE is available via computer at or via an iOS/Android app where the district URL is

We sincerely appreciate your willingness to help plan for the eventual return of students to in-person instruction! Updating your family’s preferences will help us expedite planning for when we are allowed to do so.

Thank you for your continued support,
