Parent Portal

Parents can now access their student’s information from any computer with an internet connection. The MyPolkSchools Parent Portal allows parents to check current grades, obtain immunization status, learn if their child had any recorded discipline or attendance issues throughout the day, check their child’s current lunch account balance, and even see what their child purchased in the lunchroom – all before their child comes home from school. Click HERE for more information on this exciting new service!

Lunchroom

If you want to have a school lunch with your child, please notify your child’s teacher by 8:30 am so that it can be included in the lunch count for that day.
