Wendell Watson Elementary School, in partnership with family and community, will provide rigorous instruction for ALL students as we prepare them for a successful future. The Mission of Polk County Public Schools is to provide a high quality education for all students.
No Backpack Ban
Polk County Public Schools will NOT be imposing a districtwide ban on backpacks and lunchboxes, and will NOT be requiring clear backpacks or lunchboxes for the 2018-19 school year.
We hope this information will be helpful for families as you shop for school supplies and prepare for the new school year.
Please know that we will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to keep our campuses safe. For more information on our new School Safety Guardian program, please visit https://tinyurl.com/yc6pr3qw
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.

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.
