July Edition - Volume 2
More Information for the 2020-2021 School Year
Welcome (back) to Lakeview!
We're looking forward to another school year with our Lakeview families. Whether it's going to be your first year in the building or you've been at Lakeview before, we want to take the opportunity to show you around our school, introduce our staff, and answer some questions we know you have about what next year will look like. By the time the first day of school is here, you'll already know that This Is How We Lakeview.
Check out the first video in this series and check back next week to meet our office staff!

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.
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. As a part to reopen school buildings, 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 as we are trying to limit shared supplies.

2 colors of Highlighter
