Skyward Report Cards
Parents - We are now using a new feature in Skyward. Approximately 2 weeks after a quarter ends, we will send the report cards out to your Skyward account. You can view the pdf version of the report card by logging into your Skyward account. After you log in, select the Portfolio tab on the left-hand side. If you have more than one child, select the appropriate child with the drop down at the top. If you need help getting into your account, please call the school office and the secretaries can help you get your username and password.
New Website - The school district has been working on a new website. It is still being updated but it is ready for you to take a look and see if anything that you use off of the current website is missing.
Open eBooks -
Students in grades 3-12 now have access to eBooks online. Currently, the system only has mobile apps. That means that the app can be downloaded and used on a tablet or smartphone. Once the app is installed on the mobile device, the student can open the app. Select to log in using Clever. Search for their school by typing in Pine River-Backus and selecting Elementary, Secondary or ALC. Then login with their email/Google information. There is also a second way to log in using FirstBook. This method was distributed last May to students. For parents of K-2 students, the teachers have access to the codes and can share that with you.
