Password Expiration on Windows take home devices:

If you are experiencing an issue where you receive a message that your password has expired on a Polk County Public School device, please following the instructions below to resolve the issue.

  • Take the device to a PCPS school site (The BusWiFi locations will not work, it must be a school site).
  • Get close enough to a building that you can connect to the PCPS-Secure network (This should occur automatically). You do not need to get out of the car, but you do need attach to the network and reboot the device in order to get the policy updated.
  • With the device powered on, REBOOT the device using the button located in the bottom right hand corner, shutting the device down or putting the device to sleep will not work:
  • Once the device reboots, it should clear the change password message and you will be able to login. If this does not work, repeat the reboot step until it does.

Walking students to class: In order to maximize instruction and continue with our safety precautions, ONLY Kindergarten parents will be able to walk their children to class on the first day of school if needed. You will need to park and walk with your child to building 2 and wait with your child.  Once the bell rings for instruction, you will be expected to let your child go into class and start learning.  We know these first days can be challenging, but starting with the “normal” routine as soon as possible is the BEST way to help your child adjust.

Birthday Celebrations: According to the PCSB Local Wellness Policy 8.012, Section 3.a.1, “Any activity during the school day, involving food and/or beverages that do not meet the District Nutrition Standards, will be limited to once per month per classroom.”  As a school we designate the last Friday of the month, at the end of the day for this celebration.  If parents want to send in a store prepared snack for the class, then they need to coordinate with the teacher prior to that day.

Eating Lunch with Students:  We love for parents to come eat lunch with our students.  Please remember to bring your picture ID with you each time and you need to be on the student’s emergency card.  We have designated the outside eating area for a “private lunch” with your child; in case of bad weather, we will designate a table inside the cafeteria. Due to safety you are not allowed to take other students out there to eat with you.  Also, in keeping with the PCSB Local Wellness Policy, we ask that you not bring “fast food” unless it is a healthy option.

Snacks: In order to maintain academic focus and momentum, students will not bring snacks, unless it is medically necessary.  Please make sure your child gets in the habit of eating a good breakfast either at home or at school. We will also help encourage our younger children to eat their lunch.


To view child’s grades and lunch account. Parents can now access their student’s information from any computer with an internet connection. The MyPolkSchools Parent Portal allows parents to check current grades, obtain immunization status, learn if their child had any recorded discipline or attendance issues throughout the day, check their child’s current lunch account balance, and even see what their child purchased in the lunchroom – all before their child comes home from school.
