The first day of school is here. There's no doubt that this year will be unique. Teachers, administration, and school staff have been working extremely hard this summer to make the transition to virtual school. We are all new to this, and we're in this together.
What do you need to know? Here is some information for you.
1. First Week Schedule
Monday, August 3 No School (Teacher Planning)

3. What is Clever? What is Schoology?
Clever is an online portal to many different educational applications. Once a student logs into his/her clever portal, (s)he can automatically get access to other things like Schoology, Teams, IXL, Flipgrid, and much more. There's no need to remember a login to all these applications if you have your login to Clever.
Schoology is the school management software MNPS will be using to conduct virtual school. You can access it directly by going to mnps.schoology.com (or you can access Schoology through the Clever portal.)
Once school gets going, teachers will give parents a parent access code to Schoology. This will give parents the ability to create their own parent account, to keep track of their student.
4. User names, passwords, and email addresses
Every MNPS student has a user name that uses the first name, last initial and the last 5 digits of his or her student number.
If John Doe's student number is 190987654, his user name is johnd87654
Passwords are case sensitive. MNPS uses the first letter of the first name (capitalized) + first letter of the last name (lowercase) + date of birth.
John Doe was born on September 8, 2007. His password is Jd090807
student email addresses use the user name and adds @mnpsk12.org
John Doe's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
4. What is the Parent Portal/Infinite Campus?
Infinite Campus is the Parent Portal MNPS uses. Here, parents can check on their students' grades, attendance and more. For more information, you can learn more on the MNPS website. If you need your access key/GUID Code to setup your portal, please reach out to one of these two people:
5th and 6th grade students: Mrs. Queen at email@example.com
7th and 8th grade students: Mrs. Butkerait: firstname.lastname@example.org
5. Who do I contact with questions?
We are so grateful to the faculty and staff at Bellevue Middle School, more so than ever this year. We know our Mighty Owls will rise to the occasion of what lies ahead. If you have specific questions, feel free to reach out the appropriate contact person below...
