Enroll in Our Schools


Enrolling in the District

Welcome to Dilworth Glyndon Felton School District! We are proud of the excellence that exists in our schools. District employees are committed to assuring that each student develops to his or her maximum potential, and there are numerous indications that DGF students are excelling.

DGF Schools strive to meet the individual needs of all our learners. We encourage you to become familiar with the teachers, principals, curriculum and programs. Interested parents are vital to a student's success in school. DGF Schools look forward to a rewarding partnership with you as we work together to prepare your child for the future. Contact your principal for more information about how to become involved.

General Enrollment Information

Students moving into the district during the summer may call the district office at 218-477-6800 to register. Students who move into the district during the school year should contact the appropriate school to enroll. The enrollment form is available for download at the bottom of this page.  A student is required to attend elementary school in the attendance area in which the family resides unless the proper attendance area exemption forms have been completed and approved.

In addition, students enrolling in a Minnesota public school for the first time must provide the following:

• Proof of age (kindergarten only)
• Updated record listing state required immunizations by day, month, year of vaccination

DGF Enrollment Packet 

Children must reach their fifth birthday on or before September 1 of the school year to be eligible to attend kindergarten. Kindergarten registration forms are mailed to students who are included in the district census prior to kindergarten registration each year. The completed forms should be returned during the registration times.

Immunizations

Minnesota law requires that students must provide verification that these immunizations have been completed before starting school. Each student's immunization records remain in the school system once enrolled. Each time the child receives another immunization, the health file should be updated.

All kindergarten, first-grade and second-grade students are required to have the DPT, polio, Hepatitis B, and measles, mumps and rubella vaccines. A tetanus/diphtheria vaccination must be given at or after age 11, prior to grade 7. A total of two MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccines must be given before grade 7. Some children received this at kindergarten. Seventh-graders and eighth-graders are required to have the series of Hepatitis B vaccines.

Parents may get a legal exemption from the school law for medical reasons or conscientiously-held beliefs.
