Parents should bring a copy of their child's state issued birth certificate, social security number and immunization record along with proof of residency. The immunization record has to be documented by the child's doctor or county health department. Any child not having met the state's immunization requirements will be excluded from school. If you have questions about Missouri immunization requirements, check with the child's doctor or with the county health department.

A birth certificate should be on file before the child enters school in the fall. Birth certificates may be obtained from the Marion County Health Department. For children born in another state, parents need to write the Bureau of Vital Records at the state's capital.

A child needs to be five years old by Aug. 1, 2019 to be eligible to enroll. All parents of kindergarten age children should enroll their child during the dates scheduled as supplies and materials for next year are ordered based on spring enrollment. Students who enroll during Kindergarten Roundup are eligible to attend the Kindergarten session of summer school which runs mornings from June 3 to June 28. Enrollment forms for summer school will be available during Kindergarten Here We Come, the evening of April 16 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Palmyra Elementary School and also during Kindergarten Roundup week.
