Hello, Polk Families and Community! This is Aaron Greene with your April 21 update:
There is no new information to share this evening. We will have new student activities coming out this Thursday. Food distribution continues at all our elementary sites from 11am to 1pm, and don’t forget there is free wireless internet access in our school parking lots. You can find maps of these locations at www.polkschools.org/coronavirus. If you do use these areas to access the internet we remind you appropriate physical distancing and precautions should be taken.
Today’s quote comes from poet E. E. Cummings – “The most wasted of days is one without laughter.” There is a great deal of research regarding the emotional and physical benefits of laughter. I hope you are taking some time each day to smile and enjoy yourselves. I try to read a new Dad Joke each day because I love that corny stuff. Like this one – A slice of apple pie is $2.50 in Jamaica and $3.00 in the Bahamas. These are the pie rates of the Caribbean. Keep laughing and taking care of each other, Polk County! Better days are ahead.
