Kindergarten Sign Up

Your child must be five years old on or before September 15th to be eligible.

WHAT DO I NEED?

Everyone is required to provide the following documents:*

  • Birth certificate;
  • Immunization records;
  • Photo ID;
  • Resident verification (may include, but not limited to: recent utility bill, current vehicle registration, recent DHS paperwork, signed lease agreement or notarized letter from your landlord.)

*All documentation must be received before sign-up can be completed.

HOW DO I SIGN UP?

Families who already have a child attending a DMPS elementary school or preschool may sign-up at Samuelson. The date will be rescheduled due to recent school closings. 

Please fill out the KDG Sign Up form HERE and email the items above to Samuelson@dmschools.org.

Families who are new to Des Moines Public Schools, or who do not have a current DMPS elementary student, can sign-up by visiting the Welcome Center at 1000 SW Porter Ave.
