The Southeast Polk High School will be holding orientation on August 10-12 from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm.

Due to current COVID restrictions and guidance, we ask that families complete as much of the process online and only come to the building for assistance if needed. We will do our best to respect social distancing guidelines and minimize the number of people gathering in one area.

The following information was also mailed to all high school student parents/guardians

Students may have their picture taken during orientation/open house but we will provide additional picture dates the first week of school for those who are unable to make orientation/open house.

High School students who were unable to have their picture taken during the Aug. 10-12 orientation days may do so on either Aug. 25 or 27 between the hours of 7:30am-11:00am in our auditorium. Remote learning students may come at 7:30 to avoid congestion as students will not be called to the auditorium for pictures until 8:10am.

Picture retake date is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 15. We may add an additional retake date to accommodate the Hybrid 2 schedule.
