An education rally will take place in Tallahassee on Monday, Jan. 13.
Teachers from across the state are planning to participate. As a result, school districts throughout Florida are preparing for higher than normal teacher absences.
Polk County Public Schools is closely monitoring this situation. Substitute teachers have been secured for the majority of expected absences, and district-based staff members are being assigned to schools to provide support.
At this time, we expect school will be conducted as normal on Monday, Jan. 13. However, school transportation may be delayed. You can find the most up-to-date bus information at polkschoolsfl.com/busdelays.
Any necessary updates will be issued via the automated telephone calling system for parents and guardians, the district’s website, and social media.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
