Online payments systems inactive Feb 27th thru 29th

paymentAlert: WDMCS Online Payment System Down Feb. 27-Feb. 29

The WDMCS online payment system will be inactive from noon on Saturday, Feb. 27, to 9 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 29, as we switch to a new system.

If you need to make an online payment  for school fees or transportation fees,​ or place money in your child’s lunch account, please do so prior to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27.

​(This does not ​apply to  Kids West or WDMCS Community Education classes. The online payment system for these services will remain the same​

​ and​ payments​ for these services may ​be made online throughout the weekend.)​
The new online payment system for school fees, transportation fees, and nutrition accounts
will ​allow families to see their current account balances and also make payments
​in one location. To know more about the new online system, please visitwww.wdmcs.org/online-payments.
Thank you for your patience as we transition to the new system, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Jan 13th: Planned phone/internet outage at Operations ONLY 9am to 11am

telephone2Wed Jan 13th: There will be no phone or internet access at the Operations building ONLY, from 9am and will last approximately 2 hours.

How will that impact our schools?  During this time frame, you will NOT be able to contact Operations/Transportation via phone or email.
Why?  The City of West Des Moines is doing emergency work on underground fiber optics along Grand Avenue.  The fiber was recently damaged and is impacting city services and since we are sharing fiber in this area, our services (at Operations ONLY) will be impacted during the repair. Under normal weather conditions, this work would be done during the evenings – but with extremely low temps, the emergency work needs to be moved to the day time.
