Broken Device?

We can fix it! Minor problems with keyboards, trackpads or the operating system/software will be fixed free of charge. Accidental or intentional damage will be charged at the rates shown. 

Bring your device to the tech office in the high school first. We may be able to fix it for free. 

Checks should be made payable to Pine River-Backus Schools and should be given to a school secretary. 

Are you using your own laptop or phone?

Students, staff and guests may use their own devices on our wi-fi network. 

  1. Select the student network (or guest for guests outside of school hrs.)
  2. Go here  and follow the directions to install a school internet certificate
  3. Staff and students will have to login to the wi-fi once per day here
