Dropping Students off/Picking Students Up

As always, the safety of your child is our utmost concern. Please help us maintain a safe environment in the parking areas around the building by observing the following rules. If you need to drop off your child before school or pick them up after school, always pull into the main lot on the south side of the building.



After school, all students who are not riding a bus will exit through the main front door and will be directed to cars by the teachers on duty.



Please pull all the way up to the sign designated for the start of Parent pick up. Do not stop in front of the Main Entrance.


In order to keep the flow of cars moving, students will load beyond the curve as parents pull up.


Students must use the crosswalk if parents are parked in the lot. A staff member will help students cross.


Do not drive behind the school, as this route is reserved for buses only.



Please observe these important reminders for the safety of our students.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids' Sake

Big Brothers Big Sisters has set up a Pickerington Bowl for Kids’ Sake event for September 18th and 19th. They are looking for teacher/school teams to fill the lanes. BBBS has a traveling trophy for the school that brings the most teams and one for the person that raises the most money. The Team Packet is attached. All money raised will support the school-based program in Pickerington. There is also a website for teams to sign up and raise money. They can even raise money on their social media if they are not going to bowl as well as a place for virtual bowlers to just raise funds. If you have any questions, please contact Jolyn Pugh.
