It has been a great start to the school year! Just a few reminders from the front office staff.

  • Late Arrivals - Please do not drop students off in front of the building and send them to the door by themselves. If your student is late for any reason, you must accompany them into the building. Also, If they are late because of an appointment, you can add the late arrival into Pick up Patrol so the office is aware.
  • Pick up Patrol - If you have not done so already, please sign up for our new dismissal program. Reach out to valerie_jackson@plsd.us if you have any questions.
  • Emergency Cards - Please make sure you get your emergency cards filled out and turned in. These cards are beneficial to the office in case our internet is down and we have to contact parents.

Each student in the house is eligible. Please reach out to Kendra Stewart, School Counselor by phone at 614-548-1431 or email at kendra_stewart@plsd.us in order to sign up.

Ohio Adoption & Kinship Network

OhioKAN is a new statewide program designed to help kinship and adoptive families navigate and connect with all available resources. We work to help families build connections and find resources in their area by providing personalized and customized referral information. We are also able, in Region 7 (Fairfield, Franklin, Licking, Madison and Pickaway Counties), to assist with flexible funds and hard goods. The feedback from families served has been incredibly positive! There are no income eligibility requirements and we serve formal and informal kinship placements, as well as adoptive families. We are here to listen, link and empower families. https://ohiokan.jfs.ohio.gov.
