For information on how to get involved, check out the LHS homepage for calendars of events, learn about the various clubs sponsored around campus, more history of LHS, and how to contact teachers and administrators through our teacher websites or staff directory.

Make your time count inside and outside the classroom.

It’s going to be a great year!

The MyPolkSchools Parent Portal

Parents can now access their student’s information from any computer with an internet connection. The MyPolkSchools Parent Portal allows parents to check current grades, obtain immunization status, learn if their child had any recorded discipline or attendance issues throughout the day, check their child’s current lunch account balance, and even see what their child purchased in the lunchroom & all before their child comes home from school.


If you are having technical difficulties with PCSB’s Parent/Student Portal please contact Lakeland High School and ask to speak to the school network manager. 863.499.2900


Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Parent Portal?

-The myPolkSchools.net Parent Portal is a new on-line service offered to parents and guardians in Polk County. The service will bring together into one single web page information about ALL of the students for a particular parent. Instead of visiting several different websites, making telephone calls or visiting the school to access records or information, the parent may access them all from any Internet-connected computer. The most important goal of the Parent Portal is to enhance district-to-school-to-home communication as outlined in the Polk County Schools Strategic Plan item 7(1): “Establish an effective system of communication linking district, school and home.”

Where is it? How do I get there?

-Go to https://parent.mypolkschools.net

Dreadnaught

Our school mascot is the variant spelling of “dreadnought”, which is a battleship that was built during the beginning of the 20th century. The new dreadnought ship was much quicker and more heavily armed than any ship before it that it quickly became a symbol of national power. We embody that power through the success and achievement of our students in academics and extracurricular activities.
