Check Out These Cool Shirts!


For a limited time only, get your Chasing the “A” t-shirt! This shirt is a special design for our students to wear on their field trips. It is also an acceptable uniform shirt that can be worn at school. You can purchase these shirts for only $10 in our front office.


Community Feedback Survey

Polk County Public Schools has opened its annual Community Feedback Survey. Please click the banner below to complete this vital survey.



The school clinic is in need of uniform bottoms. If you have any pants, shorts, skirts, rompers and/or capri pants your student(s) have out grown, please consider donating them to our school clinic.

We are completely out of boy uniform bottoms and are very low on girl uniform bottoms. We use the most in sizes 5-10.

We appreciate your help and working together to help the needs of other students at Alta Vista.
