What's New at Marshall Elementary
Registration for free four-year-old preschool in the Dubuque Community School District will begin on Monday, Feb. 5. This includes Dubuque’s 13 public schools offering preschool through the Statewide Voluntary Free Preschool Program.
Parents and guardians may register students in person at the selected site, beginning at 7 a.m. on Monday, February 5. Proof-of-age, preferably a birth certificate, is required to register a student. A passport or signed immunization record will be accepted if necessary.
Preschools registration paperwork is available online or in-person at elementary schools.
NOTE: In the event of a weather delay on Monday, Feb. 5, preschool registration will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 6.
Free four-year-old preschool is open to students who are four by September 15. For additional registration questions, individuals should contact the site they are interested in registering at.
Space may be limited in some facilities and registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Enrollment for preschool is not based on geography and all sites are open to residents within the Dubuque Community School District.
In addition to spots in Dubuque’s public schools, a variety of community preschool partners also offer free four-year-old preschool.
The Statewide Voluntary Preschool Program for Four-Year-Old Children is funded by the State of Iowa and facilitated locally by the Dubuque Community School District.
The fall 2017 Online Student Art Gallery is now live featuring art from the district’s elementary and middle school students!
This gallery is a way to highlight the remarkable products of art education in the district. It’s a digital attempt at bringing the work of our student artists at all levels into your home – because art is created for others to take in.
The site will open at 6:00 am on Thursday, October 5, and close at 12:00 am on Thursday, October 12.
- Monday, October 16 from 4:00 pm to 7:40 pm
- Wednesday, October 18 from 4:00 pm to 7:40 pm
- Thursday, October 19 from 8:00 am to 12:40 pm
To better inform our families about schedule changes, the Dubuque Community School District will begin offering text messaging for weather-related and emergency alerts from the district. The service is offered through School Messenger, the system the district currently uses for mass email messages and automated phone calls.
HERE’S HOW TO BE SURE YOU RECEIVE TEXT MESSAGES:
- On TUESDAY, FEB. 21, between approximately 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. all phone numbers on file for families and staff will receive a text message asking them to opt in.
- If your phone has SMS or text messaging capability, you will receive the initial message.
- When you receive this text, REPLY “Yes” or “Y” to confirm that you’d like to continue receiving text messages.
- That’s it! You will then receive text messages for weather and emergency alerts.
- You can opt out of these text messages at any time by replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.
PLEASE NOTE: The district will only use text messages for weather-related or emergency purposes, not for general district information. Subscribers are responsible for any applicable text messaging charges from their carrier.
