Hurricane Irma UPDATED 9/14/17

From the Polk County Public Schools Facebook Page:

Public schools in Polk County are expected to reopen for students on Tuesday, Sept. 19.

Previously, it was announced that schools would reopen for students on Monday, Sept. 18.

However, due to continued power outages and ongoing work to repair schools following Hurricane Irma, students will now return on Tuesday, Sept. 19. Buses are expected to also resume operations on Sept. 19.

Please check your school’s website to see if there have been any changes to sports schedules or other activities.

Please be advised that this decision to resume operations is not binding upon charter and private schools. Those schools should be contacted directly for more information.

The teacher work day has been moved back to its originally scheduled date, Monday, Sept. 18.

On Monday, Sept. 18, teachers, school-based administrators, district staff and all others who normally work on teacher work day will report to work as normal. Paras will return to school on Tuesday, Sept. 19.

A number of departments, including maintenance, custodial services, school nutrition, and information technology; are already back at work, preparing our schools for reopening. Supervisors in these departments will continue to communicate with their employees about when and where they should report.

We would like to thank our school administrators; custodial, maintenance and nutrition staff; as well as the Red Cross, local law enforcement, emergency personnel and all of those who helped provide support and hospitality to those seeking shelter from Hurricane Irma.
