New Student Registration 2020-2021

Welcome to Germantown Municipal School District!

We are pleased to offer Online Enrollment for parents/guardians to enroll K-12 students new to our district (this is NOT for returning students). 

Please make sure to complete the registration process in Skyward and sign up for a time to meet at your child's school to complete registration. Sign up for the appointment will be in step 6 of Skyward online registration.
  • To help slow the spread of the coronavirus, we ask that you contact the school to reschedule your appointment if you are experiencing any symptoms. 
  • The registration meeting will be limited to one parent (children not allowed).
  • Masks are required.
  • Parents will remain in their vehicle until asked to come into the building for the meeting. 
  • Please call your child's school upon arrival. 
  • You must bring all required documentation to complete registration. Your child will not be fully registered until all documents have been received.
  • If you are arriving more than 10 minutes late for your appointment, you will be required to reschedule.

If you need assistance determining which school your student is zoned to attend, please use the Zoning Map.

  • If you have a current student that will be changing schools due to the normal grade progression promotion, your student will automatically move to the zoned school and be considered a returning student.  All returning students will need to update information and complete forms for the 2020-2021 school year through Skyward Family Access during Returning Student Online Registration, beginning on July 1. If you need assistance with your login to Family Access, please contact your zoned school.
