Enrolling at Oscar J. Pope Elementary School

In order to enroll at our school, you must live within our geographic attendance zone boundary or your child must have an IEP designating OJP as his/her flow school.  To check to see if you are zoned for our school, please go to http://www.polk-fl.net/schools/schoolsinyourarea.htm and search your address.

If you are zoned or flow to our school, your child will need birth date verification, immunization record, a physical dated within one year, and two proofs of residence.  Your child will not be enrolled or assigned to a homeroom class until all paperwork is received and verified by school personnel.  If you have questions about this paperwork, please call the school and speak with Gladys Delabastide.

July is District Office Appreciation Month

Each month, we recognize a stellar group of Oscar J. Pope Elementary stakeholders.  For the month of July, we show our appreciation and gratitude to the wonderful people that work at the district office to support OJP.  A multitude of tasks are taken care of by a variety of people at the district office which enables OJP to run smoothly.  From assisting with transportation on field trips, to handling purchase orders, to supporting teachers through coaching models, and supporting students in Exceptional Student Education (ESE), the district office staff at Polk County Public Schools is second to none.  We appreciate our wonderful district office staff at Oscar J. Pope Elementary School!
