During conferences, our encore teachers and middle school administrators, and student services team will also be available. Please click the link here to access their signups.

KMMS Registration

Thanks to those of you who were able to join our virtual Open House for next year's 7th and 8th graders. Our school counselors Mrs. Cowan and Mr. Korb will visit our 6th and 7th grade classrooms to help them enter their course choices for next year. You can do this at home through the Infinite Campus Portal. The registration deadline is February 28th. 

All the information you'll need for next year's registration can be found at

Helpful hints from Student Services:

  • Student completes course selection entries
  • Parent approves Academic Plan in the Parent Portal by checking the "I approve" box and click SAVE.
  • There will not be a confirmation message or email.

It is still WINTER...

Please help us be sure that our students are dressed appropriately for the cold weather. Next week we will be having a Fire Drill. Coats, hats and gloves/mittens will help make the time outdoors more comfortable.

Important Information Regarding COVID Testing
Dear KM Families,
There has been some confusion about PCR vs. antigen testing for COVID-19. 
If a child stays home OR has been sent home with symptoms of COVID-19 and you wish to have them tested, KMSD requires a negative PCR test, which follows the CDC and Waukesha County guidelines for schools. This is for children with symptoms. 
Not every doctor’s office automatically does PCR testing. Please verify the type of testing before having it done. 
Documented proof of a negative PCR test is required before a child is allowed back in the classroom along with the child being symptom free for at least 24 hours without the use of medication.

Feel free to email your health staff or call the COVID-19 RN or Health Hotline, if you have any questions.
* District COVID-19 RN-Direct line: 262-968-6300, ext. 5334
* KMSD Health Hotline 262-968-6369
(District Nurse, Patricia Schuetz RN & Jenny Pick, RN)
Thank you!
