***Polk County Public Schools Will Use Remaining Early Release Days to Make Up Storm Days***

In consultation with the Polk Education Association, Polk County Public Schools will use its six remaining early release days for the 2017-2018 school year to make up instructional time lost due to Hurricane Irma.

“There will be no more early release days for students for the rest of the school year,” said Superintendent Jacqueline M. Byrd. “However, this will spare students, teachers and other employees from having to lose precious time during the holiday seasons, or extending the school year to make up instructional time. We feel this option is the best compromise to keep our students in class without giving up important time with loved ones.”

The scheduled early dismissal days that are now full instructional days are:

Oct. 11, 2017
Nov. 15, 2017
Jan. 24, 2018
Feb. 7, 2018
March 14, 2018
May 16, 2018

Child Safety

The most common preventable ways babies and young children die are from drowning, preventable crib death, and being left with caretakers that have anger management issues and are not suited to caring for a child.  In the past three years in Polk County, we have had 36 children die due to unsafe sleep (17) or drowning (18).  Each year, these deaths account for more than 50% of all childhood deaths, both preventable and non-preventable.  This is very eye opening.

DCF has a provided a great brochure for preventing the three most common causes of preventable childhood death:  water safety, safe sleep, and controlling emotions/anger in caretakers.  Click here for the brochure in English or here for the brochure in Spanish.  Click here for a brochure on summer safety.
