7-12 in Distance Learning

Starting Wednesday, February 24th, grades 7-12 will be following our Remote or Distance Learning schedule. All students should log on to Schoology for synchronous Google meets and/or directions from each teacher in their schedule. Attendance will be taken so the expectation is for all students to attend virtually in the google meet format during the time of their subject in the daily schedule. We will be following this schedule for the next couple of weeks and will plan to return to in-person learning for grades 7-12 on Monday, March 8th. In the meantime, work hard, do your best and live up to your full potential! We will be back together soon! GO TIGERS!

Feel free to contact the high school office or your individual teachers for clarification that may be needed.

Sports Spectator Guidelines for Winter Sports

As the winter sports season gets underway, here is an update regarding spectators at winter activities.:

Home Sporting Events at Pine River-Backus High School

  • Pine River-Backus High School will be allowing two spectators per team member (no exceptions) and is asking for home spectators to enter through Door #17 on the north side of the school. Visiting spectators are asked to enter through Door #34 on the south side of the school. Doors will open one hour prior to game time. No admission will be charged.

  • We will not accept walk-ups to competitions; all spectators need to pre-register to be on the approved list. By pre-registering they will also provide contact information (phone number & email address) which is required in case contact tracing needs to occur.

  • Spectators are required to wear face coverings at all times and maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet between household/spectator groups and 12 feet between the area of competition.

  • For indoor events where 12 feet can’t be maintained between participants and spectators, participants must be included in the total capacity count.

  • Spectators must not congregate and are encouraged to leave as soon as possible upon the completion of the event that their student-athlete is participating in.

  • Spectators are only allowed at official events; they will not be allowed to attend practices.

  • Restrooms will be available, but concessions will not be offered per MDH and MSHSL guidelines.

The new guidelines are based directly on recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health, Minnesota State High School League, and from the Minnesota Department of Education.

All home competitions will be broadcast on our school YouTube Channel.
