Do you have a child or know someone with a child starting kindergarten in the fall? We are now taking kindergarten information for the 2020-21 school year for children who will be five years old on or before July 31 this year. Please call the UC office and let us know!
Enrollment and residency verification began April 1, 2020. Information will be located on the Park Hill website, www.parkhill.k12.mo.us under parent resources. Please note that current UC families with an incoming kindergartner will add this child to your parent portal during the verification process; you will not complete the enrollment process, only the verification process.
