Weekly Updates for September 17, 2018
6th Gr. Leadership Camp
Toll Gate Leadership Camp will be held Sept. 27 and 28. The cost will be $35 per student. Payment may be made online through the Parent Portal or make checks payable to PLSD and return with your student form. Each student will participate in Toll Gate Leadership Camp for one full day. Having the camp at our school for two full days will ensure that every student has ample opportunity to participate in this awesome experience.
Activities include a high ropes course, a rock climbing wall, rocket building, team building activities, and coding.
The activities will be provided by a highly regarded non-profit organization, Vehicle for Change, whose mission is to empower students to change the world through adventure-based character and leadership development activities.
Forms and payment are due by Friday, September 21. Additional forms are available in the main office.
Important Information about Upcoming Infinite Campus App Changes
The District has learned that the company that owns Infinite Campus expects to launch new mobile apps in the coming days. This will replace the existing Infinite Campus application. Our current best guess for this change is Monday.
When these new apps launch, there will be one for parent access and one for student access to Infinite Campus. We believe the existing application will cease to function at that point. We have been told you should be able to download the new applications from the Apple and Android stores next week.
Unfortunately, the District’s information about these new apps is limited. We do not have instructions to provide yet on how they will function for parents and students. We will send parents such instructions – along with more details about where to find these new apps – after we receive them.
We know that many parents and students will be interested in checking Infinite Campus in the coming days for interim grades. If you typically use the online application and it is not available, we recommend using the web-based version of Infinite Campus, which can be accessed at https://www.pickerington.k12.oh.us/parent-portal/
