A new Dubuque Community School District event will help give families a jump-start on preparing for kindergarten.
The Kindergarten Kick-Off, scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 16, gives families the chance to drop-in between 3:30-6 p.m. at 12 of Dubuque’s public elementary schools. At the event, families will complete initial kindergarten paperwork, receive a packet of paperwork to take with them, and have a chance to meet school staff. As a charter school, Prescott Elementary School will begin kindergarten sign-up during its enrollment period in late February.
Registration for free four-year-old preschool in the Dubuque Community School District will begin on Monday, Feb. 1. This includes Dubuque’s 12 public schools offering preschool through the Statewide Voluntary Free Preschool Program.
