Effective immediately, all out-of-state and international trips sponsored by Polk County Public Schools are cancelled for the rest of the school year.

This decision is being made out of an abundance of caution for the safety and care of our schools and community.

Again, all out-of-state and international student trips sponsored by Polk County Public Schools are cancelled for the rest of the school year. The school year ends on May 29.

At this time, no cancellations have been announced regarding in-county and in-state trips. Decisions regarding in-county and in-state trips will be made on a individual basis. For questions and more information regarding your child’s specific trip, please speak with your school principal.

As we receive more information about coronavirus, additional cancellations of district-sponsored trips may become necessary.

Many of our students and families may be traveling over spring break. Please follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations for self-isolation and monitoring of symptoms. These recommendations can be found at cdc.gov/coronavirus.
