PCPS Monitoring Tropical Storm Idalia
Posted on 08/27/2023
Storm Information

Polk County Public Schools is monitoring the path of Tropical Storm Idalia, which could impact Central Florida this week.

At this time there are no changes planned to the school schedule; classes will be in session tomorrow. However, our staff will continue to monitor the weather and work with Polk County emergency management personnel to be prepared in case this storm impacts our area.

Even if Polk is not directly affected, there is always a possibility that our schools will need to serve as shelters for evacuees from other areas.

Please continue to follow our website and social media accounts for updates. In the event we have to close schools or alter our operations this week, we will send automated calls and emails to all PCPS families. Please make sure your school has your correct contact information on file for SchoolMessenger communications.

PCPS will provide another update tomorrow via email, our website and social media.
