High School Principal's Corner

November 2023

Notes from Dr. Deis, MS/HS Principal 

It has been a busy few months at Polo! We have had some fun days with SADD Week and FFA Week. Barnwarming was held on Friday, November 10. All of the winter sports and activities are underway and we have many students involved in various activities. 

STUCCO sponsored a wonderful Veteran's Day Assembly for our Veterans and they had a video of veterans who are graduates of Polo! 

Be sure to read the MS/HS Student Handbook so you are familiar with new policies and procedures regarding cell phones, absences, etc. You can easily find the Handbook on the "Home" page of the website under Policies/Handbooks. 

The attendance letters will be sent out soon (based on unexcused absences), if your child has missed more than six days. Please feel free to contact Michele or me (660-354-2524) if you have questions or concerns about attendance.

Check out the upcoming dates below but please check the updated calendar on the web often for changes!  As always reach out to me if you have any questions (660-354-2524, ext. 150 or deisb@polo.k12.mo.us).
