Back-to-School Paperwork Just Got Easier!

We listened when you, our building staff and administrators told us you would prefer one login. We are delighted to share this convenient, easy upgrade with you, as we begin preparing for the 2020-21 school year.

We’re making it easier for PLSD parents to fill out back-to-school forms online with the launch of a new “one-stop shop” with a single login!

Now, all student-related forms — except for sports/extracurricular activities forms — will be located inside your Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Previously, you’ve added information in two locations but now, all information will be entered directly into the Parent Portal.

Once you log in, you will see that most of your student’s information has been populated into the Parent Portal account to help expedite your annual forms update process. However, some areas will require you to enter some new information, including medical information updates. PLSD staff will notify parents who do not have a Parent Portal account already set up.

Instructions for how to complete your annual update of online forms can be found here. For more information about forms, visit our Forms webpage. To begin the annual form update process, click the big blue “Back-To-School Forms” button at the top of this website’s homepage.

New Webpage Provides One Stop for Family Resources

Pickerington Schools is pleased to launch a new webpage that’s loaded with links to useful resources for your child(ren) and family!

On our new “Student and Family Wellness Resources” page, you will find information that ranges from tips for talking with your child about the pandemic, to support with meeting your family’s food, clothing and financial needs. There are links for mental health and safety information as well as support for immigrant families. Academic enrichment and entertainment links are also included to help support your child during their time away from school.

To view this important repository of useful information, visit the Student and Family Wellness Resources webpage.

Extra Yearbooks Still Available to Purchase!

Did you miss the opportunity to pre-order a yearbook during the school year? No worries! We have extras of the 2019-2020 yearbook available for sale. The cost is $30.00 (cash). Please call Carolyn Weidner @ 614-548-1700 to place your order and schedule a time to pick it up.

Ridgeview's Summer Hours BUILDING “CLOSED” TO PUBLIC

In an effort to keep the staff that will be working in the buildings safe and allow our custodians to do a very deep and thorough cleaning, our offices will be closed to the public until further notice. The building hours are 8:00-11:00 and 12:00-3:00. Due to maintenance and vacations, there will be days the office is closed. We encourage you to call or email before coming so that we can be sure someone is available and on site to meet you outside. Don't hesitate to contact us at 614-548-1700.
