Child Care


Child Care for Health Care Professionals & First Responders

In response to the Governor’s call to action on March 12, 2020, Dieringer School District has worked with the Department of Children, Youth, & Families (DCYF) and the Department of Health (DOH) to be a childcare provider of last resort for first responders and medical professionals.  Our goal is to do this safely for staff and families, so individuals crucial to slowing the spread of COVID-19 can still go to work and not be forced to stay home and care for their own children.  Childcare is available for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade beginning Monday, March 23, 2020 continuing until further notice. If you have a student in Kindergarten through 5th Grade and would like child care, please click the link below to access the DSD First Responder-Healthcare Professional Childcare registration forms.  Please call (253-670-0398) or email: or for more information.
