Welcome to Pembroke Elementary!

Pembroke Elementary is located in southern Christian County just south of Pembroke on Highway 115. While located in a rural community, Pembroke Elementary has a widely diverse student population. Some of our students come from the city of Pembroke and the surrounding farming community. The remainder of the student population comes from nearby Oak Grove. Our proximity to the Fort Campbell military base means we have the privilege to educate a large number of students whose parents are serving our country.


Transportation changes will not be taken over the phone. You must send a note with your child to school (preferred way), or send an email to: pembrokeowls18@gmail.com before 1:30 pm.

Doors open at 6:50. Student's need to be in their seat and ready to begin school by the bell at 7:20 or they will be tardy. Student's must be checked in by an adult when arriving after 7:15.

When checking out a student, you MUST SHOW ID. Anyone checking out a student must be listed on that student's emergency check out list.

If your child has been absent, please send a parent/doctor note to school within five days of the absence, or email kerri.vanderkolk2@christian.kyschools.us      *Excuses have to be in writing.* They will not be accepted over the phone or by word of mouth in person.                                                                                                                                                                                   *If a note is turned in after the 5th day, the absence will not be excused.

Each student enrolling must present the following:

Students who are enrolling in public school for the first time must provide proof of an eye examination – not an eye screening – conducted by an optometrist or ophthalmologist prior to the first day of school. All students must have on file an up-to-date immunization certificate. All transfer students must present a completed medical examination form and a Kentucky immunization certificate. Parents/guardians of transfer students should sign a release form in order for the school district to obtain records from the school previously attended.

Those students entering the sixth grade must have a second varicella, TdaP, meningitis shot, as well as a recent physical examination.
