Beginning of School Important Information

  • Student Drop-off - Students who are being dropped off via car should be dropped off in the cafeteria lot near the end of the building.  Please do not drop students off near the picnic tables.  Please pull forward towards the end of the building where students should enter near the gym.
  • Parents and students are advised to review the policies and expectations found in the PCHS Student Handbook.  The student handbook is reviewed with students on the first week of school and also within their Advocate classes.
          Items to pay particular attention to:
    • New Student Dress Code
    • Attendance requirements
    • Graduation requirements
    • All general rules
    • School Bus Conduct
    • SMART Period Procedures and Expectations
  • Changes to Tobacco/Vaping Policies - Polk County High School and Polk County Middle School are taking a "zero tolerance" stance against the use/possession of tobacco or vaping products on school grounds.  If found to be in possession of tobacco/vaping products, all items will be confiscated and the student will be subject to suspension from school for a period of time.  Parents, please take the time to educate your students as to the changes to this policy and to the dangers of both tobacco and vaping use.  A free community workshop will be offered by Polk County Schools at a date to be announced in order to provide more educational information about emerging research on vaping and other teen risk behaviors.
