Polk State College’s campuses and centers will reopen on Monday, including online courses, dual enrollment, and the collegiate high schools. Crews are working throughout the weekend to clear debris and repair minimal damages the College incurred. It is important that individuals remain off campus until the College has reopened to allow the crews to work as effectively as possible. Additional communication will be provided on Sunday.
Polk State understands that the community continues to recover from the impacts of Hurricane Ian. The College urges students, faculty, staff, and community members to practice extreme caution while driving. If a traffic signal is out, treat the intersection like a four-way stop. Students who need transportation can utilize Citrus Connection, which students ride for free with their Polk State IDs.
The College also encourages students to communicate with their professors. Faculty and staff will be exercising flexibility as the community continues to recover from the impacts of the storm.
