PCPS Adjusts School Calendar for Tropical Storm Nicole Closure

Breaking news from Polk County Public Schools

Polk County Public Schools will make a minor adjustment to our 2022-23 school calendar to address last week’s (Thursday, Nov. 10) school closure related to Tropical Storm Nicole.

The last day of school for PCPS high school seniors will be Wednesday, May 17, 2023, instead of Tuesday, May 16. No other make-up days will be necessary at this time.

The state requires all public school students to have a minimum number of instructional hours each year. If PCPS seniors were to end the year as originally planned on May 16, they would not meet the state’s requirement.

The last day of school for PCPS students (other than seniors) is Wednesday, May 31.
