The Mid-Prairie Community School District announces preschool enrollment for 4-Year-Old Preschool and 5-Year-Old Alternative Kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year. The enrollment process begins on Monday, January 14th, 2019 and continues through Thursday, February 28th, 2019.

This enrollment process takes place online. To enroll your child for a reserved spot in the preschool program at the Mid-Prairie Community School District, please go to the MPCSD district website at and click on “Shortcuts” in the upper right-hand corner of the main district website. Then click on “Preschool Registration.” Then, finally, click on MID-PRAIRIE COMMUNITY SCHOOL DISTRICT PRESCHOOL ENROLLMENT FORM & WAITING LIST.” Please fill out the form completely as all of this information is necessary and make sure you press the SUBMIT button before leaving the site.

If you do not have access to the internet, you may stop by Mid-Prairie East Elementary in Kalona or Mid-Prairie West Elementary in Wellman during school hours to complete the form. Please note that this is for 4-Year-Old Preschool OR 5-Year-Old Alternative Kindergarten ONLY. Children must be 4 years old by September 15th, 2019 in order to enroll for the 4-Year-Old preschool and 5 years old by September 15th, 2019 in order to enroll for the 5-Year-Old Alternative Kindergarten. 3-Year-Old preschool information and enrollment will be released at a later date after a determination has been made to offer this preschool programming.

Please be aware that MPCSD only provides transportation during the midday bus route for children who attend a registered daycare provider within the school district. Before and after school transportation will be on the regular bus routes with all ages of children, while the midday route is for preschool children only with an adult chaperone/supervisor.

Enrollment signifies the holding of a spot in one of our preschool centers for an AM or PM session. You will be contacted later to complete the online registration process by one of the elementary school secretaries for the 2019-2020 school year. At this time, parental requests for AM or PM sessions are not possible. Students are placed at one of the centers: Mid-Prairie East Elementary in Kalona or Mid-Prairie West Elementary in Wellman. Parent requests for preschool placement sessions are not available. Preschool students are placed at the centers to maintain a balance of students at each attendance center.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Robin Foster, MP-East Elementary School Principal at (phone 319-656-2243) or Bill Poock MP-West Elementary School Principal at (phone 319-646-2984).

Mid-Prairie Students Seek to Offer Hurricane Florence Relief
Kristi Strickland

We are excited to announce our newest project. The Mid-Prairie Hurricane Florence Relief Project seeks to offer our At-Risk students the opportunity to find academic success by giving back to others in alternative ways. 

At Mid-Prairie, we believe in raising successful, well-rounded students to become productive community members.  Our students will travel to Beaufort, North Carolina to help families in need repair and rebuild their houses that were damaged in the wake of Hurricane Florence.  We will take a group of 22 adults and students to North Carolina from February 10th -16th. Money raised will be used for gas, food, and safety materials for our trip.
