Students, Parents, and Fans,

With the recent Executive Order from Governor Walz, we now have a date for the return of in-person sports and activities. Monday, January 4, 2021, has been established as the date for schools to begin in-person practices for sports and activities. Athletic and Activity programs will initially be limited to practice only with the start date of competition yet to be determined. Spectator guidelines are yet to be determined as well.

Parents and students, please make sure you are registered for your respective sport/activity. Students cannot practice until they are fully registered. A physical must be on file before registration can be completed. Registration can be completed at this site- Any questions regarding registration can be directed to:

Emily Gallus-High School Main Office (, 763-262-5183)

Schedules are currently being revised to meet MSHSL parameters. They will be shared and up to date on “click Big Lake High School” and “view schedules”.
