Polk School District has been monitoring the condition of the roads all afternoon and evening. We have been in constant contact with public works, 911, and the Polk School District Transportation Department, and will continue to do so through the early morning hours.
Due to the possibility of the roads in many parts of the county already unsafe or will become unsafe for school transportation, we will be delaying school tomorrow by two hours. The delay will allow our buses to pick up students during daylight hours. Good road visibility will be necessary for drivers to determine whether the use of an alternate road on their route would be a safer option for our students when they encounter an excess of water on the road.
Should conditions worsen throughout the night, we will make a school closing determination by 6:00 am. This announcement will be provided through the various media outlets, including the PSD Facebook page, Website, Reminds, and One Call Now phone system.
