Skyward

Skyward is the student information system for the district. Parents/Guardians have an account that is tied to each student that they have in the district. (Link to login site.) If you do not know your account information, you can call the school office and they can get you your login information. Once you are logged into your account, you can access the following information:

  • Your child's attendance records.
  • NEW - 2-3 weeks after a quarter ends, the report cards will be posted to your Skyward account. Click on the Portfolio tab.
  • Your child's food service records. What school meals have they eaten and what is their balance? If you set it up, you can also put money into your child's food service account using a credit card. Check the Food Service page for more information.
  • You can check and make sure the school has the correct addresses and phone numbers for contacting you.
  • You can go to the Skylert tab and control the email and other notification. More instructions are listed below.
  • You can see your child's current grades. Click on the Grade book tab. Then you can click on the letter grade and see a list of assignments/activities. Each grade/teacher grades differently. If you have questions about the grades, please first contact the teacher.
    • Some grade levels have a paper rubric for sharing your child's progress (K-1).
    • Some grades/classes are using standards-based grades.
    • Teachers communicate to the students how they grade at the beginning of a class. They will be happy to share that information with you. This information is often posted on the teacher's website. To see if they have a class website, enter the teacher's last name in the search box at the top right where it says "Search all sites".
  • Students in grades 5-12 also have their own accounts so that they can check their own grade book and attendance records.

Skyward Navigation

1. Change students if you have more than one in the district. If a student is in more than one school, change the school to Pine River-Backus Elementary, or High School. These are the only ones that have email notifications.

2. The Account Info button brings you to this screen where you can check and make sure that your contact information is correct. You can add or change your email address from the Account Info screen. If an address or phone number is incorrect, please call the school office.

3. Click on the Skylert link to get to the Notifications screen. You can get email notifications on attendance, grades and low balances in the food service account. (Low balance notifications are only sent to one parent. To make sure that it works, please make sure that both parents have an email address set up in their own accounts. Another option is to have the office check and make sure that the parent with email set up is the first in the list for email notifications.)

School Phone and Email Notifications for Parents:

Parents can control what notifications they want to receive from the school district. There are two places to make changes once you log into your parent account.

For phone calls, click on Skylert on the bottom of the left-hand side. Then you can check or uncheck the options for each phone that you have in the system. (Please call the school office if the numbers are no longer correct.) You can make these changes for each child individually.

For email notifications, click on My Account at the top right-hand side of the screen. You can then update your email address and the types of emails you would like to receive (attendance, grades, progress report and food service balance.)

If you want to get notified when your child visits the school nurse, you need to check the Receive Health Office Visit Notifications.
