This is How We Lakeview

August Edition - Volume 3

We are getting close!

You should have received your student's schedule in the mail by now. If you did not, please contact the main office and we will get the information to you. If there are issues with the schedule please contact Ryan Max (7th grade) or Sarah Geiger (8th grade). Schedule changes will be made for not having the correct core classes or courses being out of order (ie Medical Detectives 2 before Medical Detectives). Due to limited space and balancing in electives classes, we cannot switch elective classes or make other changes at this point. Check out this week's video on how to read your schedule and other important information.


Remember to have your student start checking their PLSD email account next week for important information from their teachers. This may include welcome videos, Google Classroom codes, etc that the students will need to know to start school, especially for those students who are cohort B.


Continue to refer to the Lakeview Back to School page as we are constantly updating it. If you have questions regarding VLA, the district has updated the VLA information on the PLSD website. Click here

What Will PLSD's Hybrid Model Look Like?

What will PLSD's hybrid model look like? That's the question Instructional Technology Director Brian Seymour answers in this first video in the brand new “Ask PLSD” video series. The series will feature a member of our team responding to your question(s) in a short video. You can submit questions to ask@plsd.us and we will do our best to respond to each one! Did you know Pickerington Schools relied on feedback from staff, parents, students and community experts to prepare our "Flexible Learning 2.0" back-to-school plan? With the Ask PLSD video series, we want to continue to partner with you and offer a direct line to ask your questions so that you feel prepared for the school year.

Important Info About Device Pickup and Login, Tech Repair Days & More

Device Pickup


If your student(s) attended PLSD during the 19-20 school year, they already have a device and will continue to use their same device during the 20-21 school year.

If the device is still in good working condition, then there is nothing that you need to do and students will need to continue to bring the device to school, charged, everyday.

If your current device is damaged to the point of not working, we will be holding several repair days in August before school starts.

In order to receive service, please sign up at the below link so we can prepare for the correct number of visits.

Technology Support

Repair Days in the District Office (90 N. East St.)

  • Monday, August 24th – 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. & 1:00 – 3:30 p.m.

  • Tuesday, August 25th – 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. & 1:00 – 3:30 p.m.


Students in Grades 6-12 that are New to Pickerington Schools since the end of the 19-20 School Year

Students/Families in grade 6-12 who are brand new to Pickerington Schools since the end of the 2019-2020 school year will be asked to drive to Diley Middle School on August 21st from 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM and follow the student drop-off/pick-up route to the curbside pickup location (purple tent). Please let the PLSD staff member know the name and grade of your student. They will then give you a Chromebook and power cord, as well as numerous pieces of information.

Notes:

  • If your new student will be attending the Virtual Learning Academy (VLA) they will still be issued a device and they need to pick it up at Diley Middle School on August 21st from 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM

Follow the link for more information regarding student devices.

School Supply Lists

If your student is enrolled in the VLA, their supply list is the same. However, since they are not coming into the building, they really just need whatever supplies will keep them organized at home. There are some courses which may have a fee associated with them due to specific supplies needs (ie art, ELA) we are looking into having a supply pick for those items, stay tuned for more information on this.
