Gladbrook-Reinbeck Community School parents will receive “mail-in” registration information for the 2022-2023 school year via the US Postal Service around July 15, 2022. This packet will include information on how to register school-aged children. For the 2022-2023 School Year, parents may register online, by mail, or in person during the “Walk-In” registration day.

Online registration

In an effort to simplify the registration of your child/children for the 2022-2023 school year, G-R is offering online registration through your JMC parent access. Just go to the G-R website at

www.gladbrook-reinbeck.k12.ia.us. Click the “JMC Access” button under the “QuickLinks” column, log in to your JMC parent account and follow the registration instructions.

The process of updating contact and demographic information, allow permission for internet, field trips, medications, etc. can all be done electronically within the JMC system to eliminate completing multiple paper forms.

You may be directed to a few forms that the school requests parents to print off, sign and return to the school prior to the Registration Deadline. These forms include documents such as the free/reduced lunch forms and Athletic Pre-Participation forms (optional).

Mail-in registration

Download, print and complete all the applicable forms and mail in along with a check, or pay online. All the forms are available on the G-R website at www.gladbrook-reinbeck.k12.ia.us. You will see the link for registration materials displayed prominently on the front page. If you do not have access to the website please call 319-345-2712, or stop by the district office and we will provide you with a packet of the applicable materials.
