Back to School 2022: A Step-by-Step Guide

  • Now that we've announced back to school plans for the 2022-23 school year, Pickerington Schools wants to help student(s) get ready to return in the fall as quickly as possible! We have created this "One Stop Shop" with all the information you'll need to get your kids ready for school, including supply lists, district calendar, online forms, student handbooks, school menus, and easy ways to update your family's information online! Please note that August 15-17, 2022 begins the staggered start for grades 1-12, and August 18 is the first day for Kindergarteners. Staggered start times and info can be found under Step Nine in the list below.

    School-specific information (such as supply lists and information about back-to-school activities) is available by clicking on one of the links under the "Get School Supply Lists and Other Info From Your Child's School" heading below.
