Pickerington Schools ARP ESSER Plan: Stakeholder Engagement and Feedback Opportunities
The Pickerington School District has posted its ARP ESSER plan . This web page also describes the extent to which the District's plan includes, or can be modified to include policies and strategies to address.
One Important Piece of this plan is as follows:
For the 2021-2022 school year, the District will allow parents to make the optional choice for their students to wear masks, and we do not anticipate requiring them unless the Governor’s orders, or additional orders from the Department of Health, require us to do so. We also know that physical distancing of 6 feet or more is not possible with fully in-person instruction. But we will still encourage and use our protocols for frequent hand-washing, cleaning and maintaining healthy facilities, and other mitigation protocols.
The page also includes information on how the District proposes to expend its funds over the next 3-4 school years.
The District encourages interested stakeholders to provide input and feedback on any part of the plan by sending an email to the following email address:
Please remember to include pertinent contact information (phone number, address, etc.) in the email so that the District can contact you if we require additional information or have questions. Thank you!
IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS FOR 7TH GRADE/NEW STUDENTS
Remember that there is an immunization requirement for 7th graders. Tdap and Meningococcal are required before a student enters the junior high. The Ohio Department of Health provides the attached immunization summary for school attendance in Ohio. Please discuss this with your medical provider.
According to Board Policy 5320 and 5320 AG, immunizations in compliance with state law and the Ohio Department of Health are required for each student unless the parent(s) file an objection. The Board of Education also requires tuberculosis examinations in compliance with law.
Students new to Pickerington Schools must present written evidence of similar immunizations, or written evidence to indicate that they are in the process of receiving immunizations, to be completed no later than the day of entrance. Students failing to complete immunizations within 14 days after entering are not permitted to return to school.
The Franklin County Health Department offers immunization clinics throughout the school year. An up-to-date schedule is always available on the Franklin County Public Health website.
Immunization records can be dropped off at the school all summer. You do not have to wait until August to drop these off. Our office hours are 8:00 am - 2:00 pm.
Back to School Supply Lists
We know that some of you like to take advantage of the early Back to School Sales and have been waiting for supply lists. We are recommending that students carry a minimal amount of supplies. Keep in mind that your student will attend 6 different classes during the day and that these supplies are for personal use only.
