PLMS Parent Update

7/23/2020

Welcome to the 2020-21 School Year!

Dear PLMS Students and Parents:


On behalf of the Spartan staff and our administrative team, we would like to welcome families to the beginning of the 2020-21 school year! We are looking forward to working with students and parents this year to continue our focus on academic achievement and student growth at PLMS.


With such a unique 2019-2020 school year, we are reflecting and preparing for all possible scenarios in which we educate our students in 2020-2021. Please continue to read updates from the District regarding this upcoming fall.


These newsletters will provide important information as we navigate the 2020-21 school year. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to email me at michael.malcom@pleasantstaff.org or call the office at 740-389-5167.

Registration - Final Forms!

We are very excited to announce that the Pleasant Local Schools has partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service. FinalForms allows you to complete enrollment and registration forms for your students. The most exciting news is that FinalForms saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year, meaning that you will never need to enter the same information twice! FinalForms also pre-populates information wherever possible, for each of your students, saving you time.

You may review your data at any time to verify it is current. You will be required to sign your forms once per year and after any update.

We are asking that ALL parents use FinalForms.


It is important that both Parents AND Students electronically sign their forms. Students will receive an email in their school account which they need to open and sign the documents.

Please register at: https://pleasantmarion-oh.finalforms.com/ and follow the prompts to create your account, create your students and sign your forms.


If you need help with FinalForms, please call the Middle School office at 740-389-5167.

7th Grade Immunizations


Ohio State Law requires all incoming 7th grade students to have have the Tdap and a MCV4 Meningococcal vaccine prior to school starting. There are no requirements for meningococcal B vaccine. Please make sure your child is given the appropriate vaccine.


As with other school immunization requirements, students who do not provide documentation of this immunization are subject to exclusion from school and school activities. If your child is to be exempt from the vaccine, you will need to provide a written statement if it is for philosophical or religious reasons. You will need a statement from your physician if it is for medical reasons.

Class Schedules

Class schedules will be available via PowerSchool August 10. If you need help with your PowerSchool Parent Access, please contact the Middle School office.

iPads

Please have your student bring their charged iPad on the first day of school. Staff will have students update their iPads during the first week of school. We will not need to collect the iPads early due to students being able to manually update their own once they are back in the building.

If your student turned in their iPad earlier in the summer, that iPad will be returned to them on the first day of school.

6th Grade Orientation

Our staff is working to put together an informational video for our incoming 6th graders to introduce them to PLMS!

Stay tuned for more details!

Camp & DC Trip

Camp for incoming 6th graders that was rescheduled for the fall has been cancelled. More details will come out soon from Mr. Issler or Mrs. Higgins.


DC Trips - Mr. Withrow is in communication with World Strides and will be sending out updated information soon.
