Have a student starting kindergarten? We are excited for you to join the Dubuque Community School District!

How to Get Started

Complete the following if you have NOT completed a Kindergarten Enrollment Form or attended a kindergarten welcome session.

For Your Information

  • If your child requires medication to be administered at school, the Request for Medication to be Given at School Form is available in your school’s nurses office.

When do you actually register?

You will receive a registration packet from the district in late summer with instructions on how to officially register through the district’s online student information system.

Remember that by Iowa Law, all children to be enrolled in Kindergarten for the 2023-2024 school year must be age 5 by September 15, 2023.

Families wishing to have a student attend kindergarten at a school other than their home school may apply for in-district transfer between January 15 and March 1. For more information or to apply on or after January 15, visit www.dbqschools.org/in-district-transfer.
