Many staff, students, and parents have inquired about makeup days for Hurricane Irma. We are following the plan for Polk County School Board.

The six remaining early release days in the 2017-18 school year be extended to full instructional days. The early release dates that will be extended are: October 11, 2017, November 15, 2017, January 24, 2018, February 7, 2018, March 14, 2018, and May 16, 2018.

By extending the early release days, we will ensure that we meet state-mandated instructional time requirements without extending the school year.
