Kindergarten Registration

Students qualify to attend Kindergarten if they reach the age of 5 before July 31st. If you have a child who meets this age requirement and have to reached out to the school please do so at your earliest convenience. Registration paperwork was sent out to all known children within the Doniphan-Trumbull school district. If you did not receive this paperwork please notify the school and it will be provided to you.

Doniphan-Trumbull registers students according to the Nebraska State Laws. You will need to meet each regulation before your child will be considered to be registered.

  • You must bring a certified birth certificate from the state. The hospital copy is NOT valid. 

  • If you do not already have a certified copy, you may order the state birth certificate by downloading  Birth Certificate Application.pdf and mailing or can go online to the state's vital records.
