Student Services

Welcome to the Urbandale Community School District Student Services section. Student Services provides a variety of support services for students including:

Summer Meal Program

The Des Moines Public School District is sponsoring a Summer Food Service Program. Free meals will be made available to ALL children 18 years of age or under; children do not need to attend Des Moines Public Schools to participate as ALL children 18 years of age or under are welcome. Most sites will serve lunch; some sites will serve breakfast and lunch. Meals will be available on most weekdays except Monday, July 4, 2016. Please check with each site for their summer schedule.

We’ve developed a “Parent Guide to Community Resources” to provide families with information about a number of local organizations that can help support daily living needs. To view the Resources Guide, click here and select the PDF on this page.
