This Is How We Lakeview

September 2021 Edition

Welcome September!

The students have been working hard on their iReady diagnostics and school work. We hope that you have time this weekend to relax and reset! You should have gotten an email about school pictures next week, if not, please see the flyer below.


FYI, there is a change of information on the Lakeview Important Dates flyer. We originally had conferences on October 12th listed as 11:00 am - 7:00 pm, the actual times will be 7:00 am - 7:00 pm.

About Contact Tracing

Our Health Services team issued a letter which explains the procedures that are followed after a positive COVID-19 case is reported to the District. You may review this letter at https://www.pickerington.k12.oh.us/news/contact-tracing/. Thank you!

Reminders from the clinic regarding COVID-19

    1. If anyone in the household is being tested for COVID-19, do not send your student to school until you have test results!
    2. If your child is absent from school for reasons due to Covid-19, please be sure to call the School Nurse as soon as possible (614-830-2203). This is very important when recording absences and tracking Covid-19 cases in the school building.
    3. Please remember to screen your student daily for signs/symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, fever over 100, sudden onset of severe headache, sore throat). If your student has any of these symptoms, please do not send them to school/extra curricular activities.
    4. If your student is a close contact and has been vaccinated, they may continue to attend school and extracurricular activities if they are asymptomatic. They will be required to wear a mask for two weeks after exposure.
    5. We received clarification from the health department regarding modified quarantine. If your student is correctly and consistently wearing their mask in the classroom setting, they may be eligible for modified quarantine and continue to participate in school/extracurricular activities.

    Recent Updates


    • Has your student done something awesome or noteworthy? Do you want to celebrate them and their accomplishments? In future Community Corners, we hope to highlight more of our students through the Student Spotlight feature. We have updated the Family Feedback Form to include an area where you can share the details that you want to highlight about your student. Check it out!

    See school counselors for resources for families

    Please see the attached flyer if you are interested in participating in the HOPE food program. The first delivery will be September 10th.


    With the help of community donations, we are also able to help connect students who are in need of additional school supplies. Please let your school counselor know if this would be helpful for your family.


    Email your school counselor (7th grade: Sarah_Geiger@plsd.us or 8th grade: Ryan_Max@plsd.us) to participate in HOPE Food Packs or if school supplies are needed.


    The Lakeview Family Feedback Form

    This form will be linked in each Community Corner update, allowing families to offer feedback to the counseling and administrative team regarding social justice, mental health, academic support, friendships/relationships, etc. Counselors and administrators will review the feedback on a weekly basis and send out any updates to concerns/questions in the next Community Corner update.
