2018-2019 District Backpack Policy

Polk County Public Schools will NOT be imposing a district wide ban on backpacks and lunchboxes, and will NOT be requiring clear backpacks or lunchboxes for the 2018-19 school year.

We hope this information will be helpful for families as you shop for school supplies and prepare for the new school year.

Please know that we will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to keep our campuses safe. For more information on our new School Safety Guardian program, please visit the District information page.
