Kindergarten Registration Event Being Held for Ottumwa Schools

OTTUMWA—Ottumwa Community Schools will host a registration event for students entering kindergarten for the 2019-20 school year on Thursday, March 7 beginning at 6 p.m.


The district’s Kindergarten Registration will be held at Douma, Eisenhower, James, Horace Mann, and Wilson Schools from 6 -7 p.m. Parents are asked to contact their neighborhood school to receive a registration packet prior to attending if they haven’t received one. The packet contains several forms to complete and return during registration. Forms include a student enrollment data form, certificate of immunization, and proof of birth. Iowa law requires that all students must be five-years-old on or before September 15 in the year they enroll.


Prior to the first day of school, students will also need to return the pre-enrollment physical examination form, certificate of dental screening, and a student vision card. These forms are in the enrollment packet.


For questions regarding kindergarten registration, please contact an elementary school secretary or go to the district’s website at
