Welcome to Our Website!
Welcome to the Lena Vista Elementary website! We are proud to be an award-winning school that uses research-based curriculum and an experienced, professional staff to achieve rigor, relevance and results.
Remember to send only healthy snacks to school with students.
Examples of healthy snacks are fruit, vegetables, cereal or crackers.
Please do not send candy, chips, Takis or cookies.
School shirts may be purchased in the front office. A new design is available this school year and the cost is $5 for all sizes. (Older style shirts will still be allowed.)
Solid-color polo-style shirts with collars may also be worn in our school colors of navy blue, gold or white. Hunter green is no longer a school color for the collared shirts. Students may wear khaki (poplin) or denim material shorts, pants or skirts. Please be sure shorts and skirts are of appropriate length.
Parents can view their student’s information from a computer with internet access. The MyPolkSchools Parent Portal allows parents to check up on their child’s grades, learn if their child had any or attendance issues during the school day, check their child current lunch account balance, and even see what their child ordered for lunch!
