    PTA News Used Book Sale

     Yearbooks will be available on a first come first service basis for $15 in the school’s office.  Make checks payable to North Polk schools.


    Registration 2019-2020

    Please Register for the 2019-20 school year so we can start making our classes for next year.

    North Polk families may register their students for the next school year (2019-20). Registration is important for many reasons, but primarily because it provides an opportunity to review and update household information each year. In the event of an emergency, it's important to have accurate contact information and medical records on file. For students in grades 7-12 that participate in extra-curricular activities, the process fulfills Heads Up Concussion requirements and includes Code of Conduct information required for participation. 
     
    With that said, we need all families to register! You can do this online by logging into your Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Once you're logged in, select the "More" button in the bottom left, then scroll down to "Online Registration" and select "Click here to go to Existing Student Registration." For those of you with students entering NP for the first time, you will have the opportunity to add additional students to your household's existing account. Please help us achieve 100% registration for returning families this year! 
     
    With questions or help logging into your Parent Portal, please contact Lynette Foster at lynette.foster@northpolk.org
