Open Enrollment for 2021-2022

Has your address changed during the school year?

Please check with the school office to see if you are still living in our school zone.  If you moved out of our zone and would like your child to stay here at Sleepy Hill Elementary, you must apply during the open enrollment period.

Open enrollment starts the 1st Monday of April.  We strongly encourage you to apply early, because we fill up quickly.  Applications are online through Polk County Schools.

Parents must have a Parent Portal account in order to apply for Controlled Open Enrollment.

If you do not have a Parent Portal account, one can be created by following the steps at polkschooolsfl.com/parentportal. Please bring your I.D. to the school office if you need your student’s pin number and ID.

Those approved for transfers through the controlled open enrollment window will be notified by email once the enrollment period ends.  The approved transfer is good through the 5th grade. You will be required to bring in the acceptance letter and 2 current proofs of residence within 10 days.

Transportation to and from the transfer school is the responsibility of the parent or guardian.

The school principal has the right to revoke the COE transfer/placement if false information is provided, or if attendance, tardiness, late pick-ups or discipline incidents become an issue.

Open Enrollment Dates:  Monday, April 5th through Friday, April 30th

Please contact the office at 863-815-6768
