Preschool and Kindergarten Registration

Where and When:

Registration has been postponed due to the COVID-19 safety guidelines and school closures.

In order to assist Dinwiddie County Public Schools on planning for the 2020-2021 school year, please complete the following form for your child who will turn 3, 4, or 5 years old by September 30, 2020.


Note: If you have more than one child who will turn 3, 4, or 5 years old by September 30, 2020, you must complete a separate form for each child.

Thank you to all the parents that have completed the online pre-registration form.   Starting the week of May 19, 2020, the school registrars will begin calling parents to review the process for completing your child’s registration.  You will be able to send in the necessary documents by email or fax, or you will be able to make an appointment to bring them to the school during a drive through registration.

Drive Through Preschool and Kindergarten Registration will take place on May 27, May 28, June 3, and June 4 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at each school site.

This will be for any parent that has not yet registered their child for the 2020-2021 school year and for anyone that is unable to submit their forms electronically.
