Flu season is here! Polk County Public Schools has partnered with Central Florida Health Care and the Polk County Health Department for the 2019-2020 school year to provide Flu vaccines in satellite locations throughout the Polk County School district. There is NO COST out of pocket, we will bill insurance for the vaccine provided and if you have no insurance a Flu vaccine will be given free of charge. If you previously signed up electronically through Healthy Schools’ program, you will need to fill out a new consent form at the Flu clinic, as they are no longer affiliated with Polk County Schools.
These Flu vaccines are not required for school however, we strongly recommend receiving the Flu vaccine as it is a preventable illness that can cause serious life-threatening complications. Again, this is an optional Flu clinic program, but by vaccinating our population we could help in creating community immunity, protecting those at highest risk! Thank you for your continued support to keep our students healthy!

The Parent Portal is a service offered to parents and guardians for accessing certain student records. The service allows parents and guardians to access information about ALL of their students through one convenient website. This eliminates the need to visit several different websites, make telephone calls or visit the school to access records and information.
