Busing for Rural Route Students:
The transportation information within the online registration system is not performing the way we were anticipating.  If you do not live in town, and anticipate your student may ride a rural route, please submit your information again. This information is critical to ensure our bus routes are correct.  We apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for your understanding.
If your student rides a rural route, please click on this link to fill out the following form:‚Äč  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfKIjyD8oHIc2yIKlQ1W6y1jBL2jUCbmIv1SqsRMUgvqWduQA/viewform?usp=send_form
Payment of fees
Instructional fees can easily be paid on your parent portal once your registration application has been submitted.  If however, you do not wish to make a payment online, you may submit your payment to a building or to the District Office. 
Family Lunch Accounts
If there is incorrect data in your family lunch account, please notify your building secretary, or email Food Service Director Carrie Nachazel at carrie.nachazel@grinnell-k12.org  
Thank you to all parents who have contacted the District informing us of errors in your household.  We are working diligently to resolve all household issues.  Thank you for your patience.  
Parent Gender and Birthdate
Parent Gender and Birthdate are required fields, as a way to differentiate between duplicate parents. The system is set up so that in the event that duplicate information is discovered, it will be obvious whether there are two different people in the system, or if a parent has been entered twice. 


After using JMC for years to manage student date, the District has chosen a new provider, Infinite Campus. This change will impact all student and family records, as well as the registration process.

The district hopes to provide a smooth transition for all, but we ask for additional patience and understanding during this transition period.  Any efforts on your part to return requested information or follow instructions will aid in this processes. Please contact the District Office if you have any questions. Thank you for your cooperation!

Registration for the 2016-17 school year will be held online. On Tuesday August 9 an email was sent out to families providing directions for how to register, and a link to begin the registration process. This email also has building-specific documents attached. ***If you did not receive that email, we apologize.  Please find a link below to update your contact information. 


Please find detailed instructions for the registration process here: 16-17 Registration


For parents who do not wish to register in the convenience of their home, beginning Friday August 12, kiosks will be available in each building until school starts.  If you wish to register at a building, please plan to arrive no later than 3:00 p.m. Please also keep in mind school buildings close at 4:00 p.m.
