A few notes for the end of the school year

Greetings Toll Gate Family!

We are excited to announce some fun events that will take place the last week of school.

TGMS will have our annual kickball tournament for students the last week. In addition, on May 23rd, we will have a cookout and a glow stick party in the afternoon. Fifth and sixth graders will have their own party. This is a casual event. Students are not permitted to leave school and return for the glow stick party, unless they have a doctor's appointment. We are looking forward to providing a positive and safe experience to end the year.

School Fees now due

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. There is a quick click button on the bottom lower right of the homepage of the PLSD webpage. www.pickerington.k12.oh

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.
