In just a few clicks you'll have everything you need and only the brand names you trust and respect like Ticonderoga, Crayola, Elmer's and Clorox.

Have questions,


PLSD school fees are now due. Fees for consumable materials, workbooks and fines are viewable in your student's Infinite Campus account. You may pay your student's fees through the Parent Portal.

Please be advised that PLSD will only be accepting personal checks as payment for fees through April 28, 2023, for graduating seniors this year. Beyond April 28, 2023, payment may be made by card, electronic check via the Parent Portal, or cash as needed. Thank you.

Important Notes from the School Nurse

1. Year End Information

MEDICATIONS: If your child has medication here at school, especially prescription medication, please make arrangements to pick up the medicine before the school year ends. We cannot send home medication with your child at the end of the school year. Any medication that is left in the clinic over the summer will be destroyed.

If your child will need prescription medication for the 2023-2024 school year, please feel free to pick up a "Request for Administration of Medication by School Personnel" form at the office or download from the PLSD website @

2.) Health Concerns

In thinking ahead to next school year, please be sure to alert the school nurse, before the first day of school, regarding any significant changes in your child’s health or medical needs.

Be sure to also note this information in the Emergency Medical Authorization area of the Online Registration that is accessed through the Parent Portal of Infinite Campus.

Any health concerns noted this school year, will be shared with your child’s school nurse for next school year, but it is still a good idea to reach out to the school nurse so she is notified from the parent as well.

A message from our Food Service Department

If your student has a negative balance in their food service account, please pay it off before the end of the school year. You can send cash, a check made payable to "PLSD Food Service" with your student to school, or pay online at If you need assistance with My Payments Plus you can reach their parent helpline at 877-237-0946.

Questions? Please call the food service office at 614-833-3645.

TGMS Family Feedback

We are interested in what you think - click on the link below and share your feedback with us!

This year, more than ever, we know that students and families may need extra support. We strive to be as inclusive as we possibly can. However, at times, we fall short in supporting our students and families with issues and concerns that affect them, such as social justice, mental health, academic support, friendships/relationships, etc. Your voice is crucial as we begin to reflect on our work and look at what we can do better to support our students and families. Ultimately, we know that our kids succeed when families, schools, and communities work together.

Please use the spaces below to share your thoughts on what we are doing well (and should continue doing) and what we need to work on moving forward.

We will review responses on a weekly basis and provide updates and feedback to families in the Community Corner section of the Weekly Newsletter.
