Learning Environment Change Request Period Began on January 4

A link to a change request form has been shared via Infinite Campus January 4, and requests will be open through Sunday, January 10th. Look in your "Inbox" in Infinite Campus to find the message.

If you plan to make a change, please consider the impact a potential quarantine might have on your family in the coming quarter/term and select the correct environment. Due to staffing needs and configurations:

Changes at the elementary level will likely cause reassignment of your child’s teacher and class configuration, regardless of your family's decision. In addition, changes in either direction will not be honored after Jan. 10.
KM will not be able to honor changes at the middle and high school levels from distance learning to face-to-face learning after Jan. 10. 
At the high school level, selecting distance learning may alter your student’s term three course selections.
The final opportunity to request a change will occur before the start of term four, which begins on March 30.

NOTE: This change request form is only necessary if you want to change your environment for the third quarter/term, which begins Jan. 26.
8th Grade Students & Families

Dear 8th Grade Families, 

This is a reminder that students who are interested in a charter school for high school should apply by Friday, January 22, 2021 at Noon.

Here are links to apply:

Families will be notified of acceptance by charter schools no later than January 27th. 

For students who will be attending Kettle Moraine High School, please mark your calendar for the Virtual KMHS Course Information Night on Monday, February 8, 2021 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. This evening, attend sessions with teachers about courses that will be offered in the 2021-22 school year and get information and support with the course registration process. This is not a required event but rather another way to offer support throughout this process. Details about the virtual program will be shared out in upcoming communications.

Information about high school choices is available at www.kmsd.edu/hschoices. If you have any questions, please contact the KMHS Campus Counseling Center at 262-968-6273 ext. 4025.
