All obligations must be cleared in order to purchase tickets. You DO NOT want to miss out!! Please see Mrs. Thacker, Mrs. Mudge or Ms. Osborn for more information.  

Attention Parents and Seniors - Senior Ads for Yearbook

All photos and payments for senior ads are due no later than March 10, but anyone interested needs to contact Amanda.lavery@polk-fl.net to reserve space.  Half page ad plus a yearbook is $135.  Full page ad plus yearbook is $185. 

Seniors and Parents

Lifetouch has planned a cap and gown photo date in their studio on Monday 3/23.  It is a prepaid event so seniors will need to have their order and payment with them when they take their pictures.  Seniors will need to call the studio at 407-802-2468 to schedule an appointment. 

Free Office 365 for all KHS Students

All secondary students now have access to the Office 365 Education package, which includes Office Suite Online, OneDrive cloud storage with the ability to collaborate and share documents, and 5 copies of Office 2013 for home download. Students can also access Office 365 using their mobile devices. Students will not have access to Outlook email at this time; they will continue to use their Polk Gmail. Students will log in through the www.polk-fl.net website by clicking on the Office 365 link on the bottom left of the web page, under Tools & More. Note: Students must use the Office 365 link, not the Student Portal or Webmail for Office 365 links. Office is available free until students graduate or are no longer enrolled at a qualified school.  The district created a Student Guide for student assistance. Students can also use Office 365 for their mobile devices; see Office 365 for mobile devices.  Student sign in-in information is:

Username: studentportalname@polk-fl.net

Password: student portal password

This information should be the same as student computer access, with the addition of @polk-fl.net

For technical support, teachers and network managers can assist students. Students and parents can email lia.maffett@polk-fl.net or john.jacomet@polk-fl.net for technical questions.
