Welcome to the CLASS OF 2033!
Dear families of future DVES Kindergartners,
We are so excited to have your child attending our school starting in the fall of 2020! Upon the recommendation of Governor Noem, we will not be holding Kindergarten Round-Up in person this spring. While we would love to meet our future Panthers, the safety and health of our community members and families is our top priority.
To secure your child’s spot in kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year, please register by completing the process described below no later than April 22, 2020.
HOW TO REGISTER YOUR CHILD FOR KINDERGARTEN
STEP ONE: Click the link below and click on "Kindergarten Round-Up" which will add you to our list to begin the enrollment process for your child, it will not be an appointment that you attend.
(If you have already done this prior to April 9, 2020, you do NOT need to sign up again)
