Preregistration available for FDCSD Kindergarten Roundup

Preregistration is taking place for Kindergarten Roundup at the Fort Dodge Community School District.

Families can choose the session that works best for them: 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., noon to 1:30 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. The schedule is as follows:

• March 11 at Butler Elementary

• March 12 at Feelhaver Elementary

• March 14 at Duncombe Elementary

• March 18 at Cooper Elementary

The child’s home address determines which Roundup location that child must attend. If parents or guardians are unsure where a child should attend Roundup, please call 574-5679. Children must be five years of age by Sept. 15, 2019, to be eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall.

Parents or guardians who have a child ready to enter kindergarten may register their child for Roundup using the online form located at www.fdschools.org or may call the registrar at the Central Administration Building at 574-5679 to register their child into a Roundup session. The following information is needed:

• If your child currently attends preschool or TK at Riverside ELC: no paperwork is needed at this time, please use the online form to indicate your intention to enroll in kindergarten at the FDCSD.

• If your child currently attends preschool at Childcare Discovery, Community Christian, Dodger Preschool, Little Lambs or Saint Edmond: proof of guardianship, proof of address, immunization records and an Infinite Campus Parent Portal agreement (unless you already have a child in the district), please use the online form to indicate your intention to enroll in kindergarten at the FDCSD.

• If your child currently does not attend preschool: proof of guardianship, proof of address, immunization records and an Infinite Campus Parent Portal agreement (unless you already have a child in the district), please use the online form to indicate your intention to enroll in kindergarten at the FDCSD. You will then receive a link to complete the pre-registration process online prior to Roundup.

Parents and children will spend about an hour in a classroom where they will engage in various literacy, fine motor and math activities. Parents will then attend a brief meeting with the building principal, nurse and kindergarten teachers. Children will remain in the classroom during the meetings to participate in art and story time as well as have a snack.

For additional information, contact Jeri Bird, registrar, at 574-5679 or jbird@fdschools.org.
