Schedule for Picking Up Personal Belongings

Media Center Book Return- Please return All Ridgeview STEM Library Books when picking up personal belongings next week. Books will be collected as you drive by to pick up your belongings. We highly suggest books are returned during this time. The longer they are out, the higher the chance they go missing. If books can not be delivered at this time, then they will be collected in the fall of next school year. Thank you for your understanding during this time.

  • We are expecting a lot of cars, so we will be making a line in the Welcome Center parking lot that will wrap cars around so they can pick up their belongings by the lunch room doors. Once individuals drop off any library books and get their bag, they are asked to exit the lot from the far side exit/entrance by the insurance companies.

  • Athletic team equipment will be arranged and scheduled by the athletic department. Please look for information from your coaches and AD about how this will take place in the future.

  • Lost and Found: At this time, we are following all CDC guidelines and will not be putting out lost and found items for families to look through. Please continue to monitor future newsletters for updated information about lost and found items.

May Students of the Month

PTO News

**Ridgeview Tiger family, the PTO needs your help.**

Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up, and the PTO would like to show our teachers how much we appreciate them. During this new style of learning, our teachers have answered the call and stepped up for our students.

We are asking for Ridgeview students, as well as parents, to record a short video saying thank you to our teachers. This is where you can get creative. It can be a recording of you saying thank you with a reason why. It could be as simple as a photo with you holding a sign with thank you written on it. It could be a whole family affair as well.

We are asking that you send in the video BY NOON ON MAY 4th. Please send the video to jennsanderpto@gmail.com . If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the email address above.

Thank you for all your help! Stay safe and healthy

If you are interested, please complete the sign-up form below and we will send you a Google Meet link the morning of the event. We will also be sharing recipes and maybe even having a bake-off - later! Hope to see you there!

Face-to-Face Tech Support Schedule

Pickerington Schools’ technical support hours will now be held on Wednesdays through the month of April. Each Wednesday, you can get help with your student’s device between the hours of 2 PM – 4 PM at the District Office at 90 N. East Street. Please use use this link to register for service. Only devices that are unusable may be brought in during these times (e.g., broken display, won’t power up, dead battery, etc.).

Locked Out of Device

If your student has issues logging into their device, please have them email their teacher, admin, or counselor and they can put in a help desk ticket for a password change. If students do not change their password when prompted to do so by the device, their password will eventually stop working and they will be locked out. Obviously, they will need to use another device to email or have someone email for them.
