Welcome to the Lena Vista Elementary 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.
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!

- Controlled Open Enrollment for 2020-2021 (4/3/2020)
Polk County Public Schools is moving forward with controlled open enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year.
The process of “controlled open enrollment” gives students throughout Florida an opportunity to attend a school other than the zoned school.
Again, this enrollment opportunity relates to next school year: the 2020-2021 school year.
During controlled open enrollment, parents seeking additional choice options for their students can apply for placement in any school in the state that has not reached capacity and still has seats available.
We will begin accepting applications for controlled open enrollment at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, April 6.
Applications must be submitted online through parent portal. The deadline to submit an application is April 24.
Parents of students approved for transfers through the controlled open enrollment window will be notified by email after the enrollment period ends.
