Important Message on PCPS Reopening

Please be advised that Polk County Public Schools will delay the start of the 2020-21 school year at least until August 24th due to the rising transmission of COVID-19 cases in the community.

We continue to work closely with local health officials, and if the spread of the virus remains high, we can further delay the physical reopening of our brick-and-mortar schools if necessary.

We would also like to announce that Polk County Public Schools is planning to offer 3 distinct learning formats for the upcoming school year, and families will need to choose which format best meets their needs by August 2nd.
