At Southeast Polk we work to support students of military families.  Schools can provide stability and a normal routine for children whose parents are deployed or are transferred between installations. The stresses that may result from family separation or moving to a new community may interfere with the ability of students to focus on learning. Here you will find resources for military students and their families to connect to programs and after-school activities provided in our community and by the U.S. military.
