Electronic Device Return

Greetings Horizons Hawks!
 
This is an important message regarding electronic device return. This message will repeat in Spanish.
 
Tuesday, May 19th through Thursday, May 21st from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM we will be collecting student computers that were distributed for distance learning.
 
Fifth grade students are required to return their devices.
 
Kindergarten through fourth grade students may choose to return their device during the afore mentioned time, or may choose to keep it for continued summer learning. Polk County Public Schools will be offering continued online summer learning for our students. Devices kept over the summer will be required to be returned at a later date, which will be communicated at the end of summer break.
 
When returning your electronic device, please come through the car rider area. Remain in your vehicle, just like you did when you retrieved the electronic device. Make sure you bring back the device and the power cord. Once you arrive, one of our staff members will collect the device, it will be scanned in as returned, and a receipt will be given to you.
 
If you decide to keep your device and you unexpectedly have to move, please call the office to set up an appointment to return the device and power cord before you move.
 
We hope this message finds you well. Have a wonderful day!
 
Saludos Horizons Hawks!

Lunches

We’re making changes to our meal distribution service and sites beginning Monday, April 13.

First, please note that meal service will not be available on Friday, April 10, since schools will be closed and staff will not be working.

Beginning Monday, April 13, we will only distribute meals three days per week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Extra food will be provided each day to make sure children’s needs are met.

Distributing meals three days per week will help safeguard our families and employees by requiring fewer trips to pick up food.

Starting Monday, April 13, we also will be making changes to the number and list of sites serving as meal distribution locations.

For a complete list of food locations and other details, please visit polkschoolsfl.com/lunchlocations.

Please note that PCPS no longer requires that children be present to receive meals. Although we prefer that children are present (to help ensure the meals are going to the right place), it is not required.

If children are not present, please bring their school ID, or be ready to provide their names/schools to PCPS staff. This is necessary for record-keeping purposes.

Families are still welcome to visit any meal distribution site to receive food. This service is available to all Polk County children, including students of public, private and charter schools, and homeschool students.

Hello Families!

We miss you all so much, and we hope you are staying healthy and well during this time.  Please find the below information that will assist you and your families this next week.

On Monday, March 30th and Tuesday, March 31st, our instructors will reach out to families to introduce their distant learning format to you.  Please understand that different instructors may choose to use different formats.  We understand that this way of learning is new for many of our students and families, and our staff will operate with a high level of flexibility as we adjust to this new learning platform.

Communication

We will utilize our school’s Facebook page and website to communicate the most up-to-date information beginning on Monday, March 30th.  The website is http://horizonshawks.polk-fl.net/.  Please follow our Facebook page and check the website for updates.

Your child’s instructors are your first point of contact for instructional-related matters as each instructor has the autonomy to use the platforms they choose and differentiate to meet the diverse needs of our students.  Please make sure you have their information and keep in touch.

Lunch

We will be offering lunch services from 11:00 to 1:00 each day.  Please ensure your children are present when you come for lunch.
