2020-2021 HPSD Student Registration

The 2020-2021 Hattiesburg Public School District (HPSD) Student Registration window is July 1, 2020 - July 31, 2020. HPSD uses the online registration process available via ActiveParent. Many families already have existing ActiveParent accounts; however, those families without ActiveParent accounts must set up accounts in order to complete student registration and enrollment. Additionally, this year HPSD families will have the ability to scan and upload registration documents directly into the ActiveParent system for school site review and final verification. To use this feature, parents must have access to a computer scanner or camera from an electronic device/smartphone to use to upload the documents. To access the HPSD ActiveParent online portal, visit the website link: https://mshattiesburg.activeparent.net/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fDefault.aspx. If you are the parent/guardian of a 2020-2021 HPSD RETURNING student with the SAME address, go to the HPSD ActiveParent online portal and start the 2020-2021 online registration process; click the pen/pad icon in the upper right-hand corner of the ActiveParent page, enter your account login credentials, and ensure that the upcoming year 2020-2021 is selected. Follow the instructions and complete all student and family information accurately; you may scan and upload into your account all proofs of residency and immunization records (incoming 7th graders and kindergarteners). Be mindful to enter and verify the correct home address to ensure the accuracy of your child’s bus assignment. Note: Additional details regarding transportation and student class schedules are forthcoming.

If you are the parent/guardian of a 2020-2021 HPSD RETURNING student with a NEW/DIFFERENT ADDRESS and/or a RETURNING STUDENT WITH AN AFFIDAVIT, after entering your registration information and uploading your documents online via the ActiveParent portal, contact your child’s school to schedule an in-person final verification Registration Appointment for Monday - Friday during the hours of 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Note: For ALL individuals requesting affidavits, BOTH the parent/guardian of the registering student AND owner/leaseholder of the home must come together in-person to the school site with appropriate documents (i.e. two proofs of residency documents, valid/state-issued identification, etc.).
