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.
On Thursday, July 30th, we learned from Governor Walz and the Department of Education, the parameters and rules for the return to school. A localized approach using county-by-county metrics has been created, click on link below to learn more. The primary guidance focuses on a two week measure of COVID-19 cases. As we get closer to the start of the school year, we will receive updated data to see what learning model we will start the school year with.
