Mission

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.

Volunteer Background Check Fee to Remain at $25 Through End of 2018

The Polk County School Board has decided that the fee to cover volunteers’ background checks, as well as their badge and handbook, will remain $25 through the end of the calendar year.

Polk County Public Schools will be using more extensive volunteer background checks as part of our security measures to protect students and staff. The district will incur an additional charge for the statewide and national background checks.

However, through the end of 2018, the cost to volunteers will remain $25. We are exploring other funding sources to help offset the cost of background screening for volunteers on an ongoing basis. More information will follow.

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.
