(Parents/guardians should receive an email on or around that date.)
 
A few Registration reminders:
  • Existing Families: If you are requesting an address change within the Pewaukee school district, the PHS office will need verification of the address. Please bring your lease, purchase agreement, or utility bill to the main PHS office.
  • Please do not add contact information in Comments sections.  These requests will be denied.  (Adding phone numbers or email addresses in the Comments sections can cause confusion and/or delay in the event we need to contact you.)
  • If you submit a change request that is denied by PHS, your registration will be marked as incomplete.  (An explanation will be provided as to why the change was denied.)  You will need to log back into Family Access, review the denied change, and complete the step and registration again.
    • Change requests where contact information is being added in Comments sections will result in the change request being denied.
