Please note: The Online Enrollment Application will open for families on August 5. To help ensure our students, families, and staff are safe, MMSD is supporting existing and new families of elementary, middle, and high school students to complete the enrollment process 100% virtual. You must enroll each child every year. This is the designated time for schools to be available virtually to families. If you are not available on these days please reach out to the school regarding an alternative time.

All MMSD school buildings are closed to the public during registration week and enrollment can be completed 100% virtually. Contact your school during August Enrollment Dates to schedule an appointment to verify your student's enrollment. Access your school contact information here.
