Kindergarten

Have a student starting kindergarten in August? 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 New Student 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.
