About Our School
Cleveland Court Elementary School was built in 1927 to serve area children of the Cleveland Heights subdivision. Our country, however, was in an economic depression at this time. The school opened for one semester, but due to low enrollment the school closed and was subsequently used as a Works Project Administration (WPA) facility. Later, it was used to build, assemble, and paint Patrol Torpedo (PT) boats during World War II. Finally, in 1947 Cleveland Court opened as a school for neighborhood children. Since 1947, Cleveland Court has had a reputation for high quality education and has grown and expanded to meet the needs of all the children it serves.
The MyPolkSchools 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.
IMPORTANT! School Start Date Change
This is an important message from Polk County Public Schools regarding the upcoming school year.
Please be advised that Polk County Public Schools will delay the start of the 2020-21 school year at least until Aug. 24 due to the rising transmission of COVID-19 cases in the community.
We continue to work closely with local health officials, and, if the spread of the virus remains high, we can further delay the physical reopening of our brick-and-mortar schools if necessary.
Again, the start of the school year for students is being delayed until at least Aug. 24.
We also would like to announce that Polk County Public Schools is planning to offer three distinct learning formats for the upcoming school year, and families will choose the learning format that best meets their needs.
One option is returning to campus for face-to-face instruction with various health and safety measures in place. There are also two options available where students can pursue online learning.
Parents must register their children for one of these three learning options. The deadline to make a selection is July 27.
You can find out more about these three learning options and complete the online registration by visiting polkschoolsfl.com/reopening.
It is very important for parents to go online and register their child for the learning option that best fits their needs. This information will be essential for our planning purposes, and we need all parents to make a selection by July 27.
