Polk County Schools –
From the desk of Superintendent, Dr. Katie Thomas:
Polk School District will continue to monitor new and existing COVID-19 cases reported in our schools by parents, staff members, and/or the Department of Health (DPH) and continue to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment for our students.
Data is posted daily on our website under the COVID-19 tab. We ask that all of our stakeholders do their part by not sending students to school when they are symptomatic.
For attendance purposes, we will accept parent notes related to COVID-19 absences, and students will not be penalized related to truancy/attendance appeals. Thank you for continuing to partner with us in these efforts.
