Frequently Asked Questions

Please consult this LIST of FAQs for parents.

Parent Portal

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

School Messenger

School Messenger is the “opt-in” communication tool used by Polk County Schools. Polk County School Board offices, as well as LHMS, will use this service to send casual reminders, important updates, and emergency information to parents. You need to create an account (make sure the email you use is the same as your Parent Portal email) on the School Messenger website, then check PREFERENCES to establish what kind of info you want to receive, either as voice mails or emails.
