School Closure for the Remainder of 2019-2020

As previously shared, Governor Brian Kemp instituted a statewide shelter in place through April 13, 2020.  These closures generate a wide range of emotions, particularly loss for end of year traditions.  We are heartbroken for our seniors and all students impacted by this pandemic.  This has never happened before, and as such, we must all be creative in how we provide the time-honored experiences for our students, as well as close out the important efforts of education for this school year.  Polk School District is hard at work discussing these items.  A more detailed listing of information about our plans and policies for the remainder of the closure will be provided to our students, parents and employees within the coming days. Please continue to check our Facebook and Website for important information.

Polk School District still intends to honor spring break (April 6-10) as time off for our staff and families, and will not require students to work on distance learning packets next week.  We understand that this is a stressful situation for all students and families.  We encourage you to take time to rest and recoup over spring break as we prepare for the coming months.

During this shelter in place order, certain school district business must continue, such as district finances, food distribution, school bookkeeping, technology infrastructure, and maintenance.  These are considered essential services and may require employees to report to school sites or administrative offices periodically.  All other general operations will continue with staff working online.

As always, we greatly appreciate the understanding and support of all stakeholders.  Together, we will come out on top!  Stay healthy!

Sincerely,

Laurie Atkins
Superintendent
