SWMS 2016-2017 Teacher and Employee of the Year

Please congratulate our Teacher of the Year, Shannon Mooney and our School-Related Employee of the year Elvira Abreu.


Microsoft Office 365 is available to all secondary students FREE OF CHARGE

We are pleased to announce that all secondary students now have access to the Office 365 Education package, which includes Office Suite Online, OneDrive cloud storage with the ability to collaborate and share documents, and 5 copies of Office 2013 for home download.  Students will not have access to Outlook email at this time; they will continue to use their Polk Gmail.  Because they are not using Microsoft email, and the Office 365 accounts reside within our domain, additional permission forms are not needed at this time.

A Student Guide has been created to use with your student.  Students can also access Office 365 using their mobile devices. Please see the Office 365 Guide to Mobile Devices.

Students will log in through the polk-fl website by clicking on the Office 365 link on the bottom, left of the web page, under Tools & More. Note: Students must use the Office 365 link, not the Student Portal or Webmail for Office 365 links. Their sign in information is:

Usernamestudentportalname@polk-fl.net

Password: Student portal password

This information should be the same as student computer access, with the addition of @polk-fl.net

Forms and Emergency Contact Information

Emergency Form clip art

Today your child received a packet with a numerous amount of forms to be filled out and turned in. Please sign and return these forms promptly.

Emergency Contact Form

It is very important that we have the most up to date Emergency Contact Information for your child on file. You can assist us by reviewing and updating this information by using one of the following methods:

  • Use Parent portal to make the necessary changes ( not need to return the hard copy back to the school) or
  • You can make the necessary changes to the hard copy that was sent home with the student the first day of school and then return it to school. Please use blue or red ink to help assist us in identifying the changes that have been made)

The My Polk Schools Parent Portal

Parents can now access their student’s information from any computer with an internet connection. The My Polk Schools 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.
