The Polk County Board of Education made a small change to the 2020-2021 calendar at its December monthly meeting, clarfiying that students will return to school on January 4, 2021, from holiday break.

Previous calendars had designated January 4 as a standard school day where teachers had been asked to discuss remote learning. That designation had caused some confusion about the structure of the day among families.

The Board has removed that remote designation to clearly label January 4 as a regular school day for students.
