Polk County Public Schools is monitoring the path of Tropical Storm Laura. At this time, there are no changes to school operations. We still expect to reopen campuses and begin classes on Monday, Aug. 24.
PCPS will continue to track the storm throughout the weekend and work with local emergency personnel as necessary. Any changes to school operations will be communicated using the district’s automated phone and email system (SchoolMessenger), as well as our website and social media accounts. Important updates will also be sent to area news outlets for broadcast.
Unless otherwise noted, PCPS will begin the new school year on Monday, Aug. 24.
