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. 



  • January 18th, 2021:

    • All K-2nd grade students will return to in-person learning

    • All 3rd-5th grade students will return to in-person learning 

      • All students will be required to wear face-masks and teachers will be required to wear face masks and face shields when in classrooms with students

    • 6th Grade - will continue distance learning to satisfy the staggered return mandate from the state 

    • The Junior-Senior High (7-12) will return to the original hybrid model of AABBC 

  • February 1, 2021 - 6th grade will return to in-person learning

  • February: Continue to evaluate and plan for a return of 7-12 students to in-person learning.  More information will be provided as we move forward

Our goal is to welcome students back to school in a safe environment that allows for the high-quality learning environment we have come to expect here in the Belle Plaine Public Schools.  We are working on plans to begin to bring secondary grade level back full time as we move into February and March.  We will closely monitor the data and work closely with the Scott County Public Health as well as the Minnesota Department of Health.

We thank you for your patience, understanding and partnership as we work together to have a successful 2020-2021 school year!
