This is just a reminder that Polk County Public Schools is still requiring masks or other approved face coverings for all K-12 students.
Many of our eSchool students will be returning to campuses for the second quarter of the year, and parents have been inquiring about our mask policy. In addition, we have received questions from families at a time when some cities have been discussing or rescinding their mask ordinances.
PCPS mask requirements remain in effect on our campuses and properties, regardless of local ordinances.
We continue to work with the Florida Department of Health in Polk County to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our schools. We are following CDC-recommended guidance from FDOH-Polk calling for the use of masks or other approved face coverings. Please understand that we are taking these measures in an effort to help protect our students and staff.
