Morning Care for our Students
The Rise and Shine Club provides safe and structured supervision of Palmer students from 7:00 am until the start of the school day. Our staff will provide a safe and happy environment for the children of working parents in our PCA family. Drop off must be between 7:00 am - 7:15 am at the back of the school via the parking lot located on the right side of the building. For late arrivals, past 7:15, you may attempt to drop off at the back door. If there are already cars lined up for carpool, you must remain in the carpool line. You may not create another lane and drop off.

Florida law (Section 1003.21(1)(a)2, Florida Statutes) specifies that children who have attained the age of five years on or before September 1 of the school year are eligible for admission to public kindergarten during that school year based on rules prescribed by the school board. Students are eligible for kindergarten attendance provided they meet the age requirement.
Pre-Kindergarten or VPK must be 4 years of age on or before September 1 of the school year.
First Grade must be 6 years of age on or before September 1 and successful completion of Kindergarten.
Students transferring from other schools must have complete and up to date transcripts documenting all school years completed, standardized test results, health records, and, if applicable, IEP documentation, 504 plans and/or educational psychologist reports documentation. If the student was homeschooled, we need documentation that they have successfully completed the prior year and have been promoted to the next grade level.
The Catholic schools in the Diocese of St. Augustine admit students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities accorded or made available to students at the school. They do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious affiliation, national or ethnic origin in administration of educational services and policies, and admission policies, etc. Final acceptance for admission and re-admission rests with the principal and the pastor.
