Reminder: PCPS Schools Are Open Tomorrow (Monday, Jan. 13)

Polk County Public schools news release graphic.

Dear families,

Please be advised that our schools will be open tomorrow (Monday, Jan. 13).

We are anticipating higher than normal teacher absences due to an education rally in Tallahassee. Our most recent update shows that approximately 1,500 teachers have indicated that they will be absent. This is lower than previous forecasts.

We are monitoring this situation closely, reviewing staffing plans school-by-school, and will cover absences with a combination of substitute teachers and district staff. We are also working closely with our law enforcement partners to provide additional security on campus.

 For more information, please visit our Facebook page, which includes a video of a news briefing today that outlines our plans for Monday. Thank you.
