Student Early Dismissal Days

In consultation with the Polk Education Association, the Polk County School Board have decided that the six remaining early release days in the 2017-18 school year will be extended to full instructional days.

The remaining early dismissal days are: Oct. 11, 2017; Nov. 15, 2017; Jan. 24, 2018; Feb. 7, 2018; March 14, 2018; and May 16, 2018.

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

In order to create uniformity throughout Polk County Public Schools, school bell schedules for all of Polk County Elementary Schools will have a start time of 8:00 a.m., and an end time of 3:00 p.m.
