DMPS OPENS HOTLINE to answer questions from families

Des Moines Public Schools has set up a hotline for the families of students to call with questions they may have about distance learning, technology, graduation, support services, or any school-related issue.

The number for the DMPS Family Call Center is 515-242-8221.

With school buildings closed, and no staff present to answer phones, the new call center will serve as a clearinghouse for parent and family inquiries of the school district.

The hours of operation for the month of May will be:
• Monday-Wednesday-Friday: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
• Tuesday-Thursday: 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM
