Pine River-Backus School Board sets revised calendar
The Pine River-Backus School Board approved a revised 2013-14 school calendar to make up for school days lost to cold or snowy weather at the regular meeting Monday, Feb. 24.
The revised calendar extends the school year to June 4. Earlier ideas for making up lost days included scheduling school makeup days during spring break. Some board members, teachers and residents agreed with that idea, but Superintendent Cathy Bettino said there was nearly a 50 percent split on the subject.
