Parent Communication

Parents, there are multiple ways for us to get important info to you:

1. REMIND texts – To sign up, simply text @parentlhms to 81010. You’ll start getting texts pertaining to just LHMS (not other PCPS news).

2. SCHOOL MESSENGER – get important/emergency news from LHMS and Polk County Schools.

Click here for directions on signing up for School Messenger. However, please ensure that your Parent Portal information is up to date, as your email address is required to set up an account on our School Messenger system.

3. PARENT PORTAL – access to student grades, attendance, etc.

Parent Portal login page. If you have never signed up before, come by the office to obtain the PIN needed to attach your student to your account.

Parents can access their student’s information from anywhere. The 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 (and much more!).

Parent Curriculum Guide

Attached please find an electronic copy of the District’s  newly updated Polk County Public Schools Parent Curriculum Guide.   The Guide contains valuable information and resource options for parents on programs, choice options, and academic expectations and requirements for all students Pre-K to postsecondary.
