Belle Plaine Public Schools are continuing to work with the Minnesota Department of Education, Department of Health, and the CDC.  The health and safety of our staff, students and families is the top priority. Please check back to this page for the most recent and updated information regarding the 2020-2021 School Year. 

As directed by the Minnesota Department of Education, we have been preparing for three school scenarios for the 2020-21 School Year: Face-To-Face, Hybrid and Distance Learning. Each of the three forms of learning could be used in response to various conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the school year. 



  • November 23rd & 24th - NO STUDENTS - Planning transition days (no student classes...required to give transition days per Gov. Walz executive order)

  • November 30 - December 22 - Distance Learning for all students K-12

  • December 23-27th - District Leadership Team meets with the Regional Support Team to review numbers and make recommendations on a possible return.

  • December 23 - 27th Superintendent communicates to parents about Learning Model for January 4th
