About Health Services

  • Tell Us About Your Student's Health!

    Before the start of each school year, please be sure to contact your school nurse and child’s teacher to discuss any health concerns your child has, including severe allergies, seizures, diabetes, asthma, and current medication. During the school year, please be sure to update the school nurse and teacher about any new or changing medical conditions or medication.

2022-23 COVID Guidelines

  • Pickerington Schools follows Franklin County Public Health's guidance on COVID illness and exposure. Please adhere to the following guidelines if you have tested positive for COVID or live with someone who has tested positive for COVID.

    COVID Test Positive: 

    • The student/staff should stay home for five days from the onset of symptoms. 
    • The day the student/staff started having symptoms is day zero.  
    • The student/staff should return to school on day six as long as the positive person is no longer running a fever, not taking any fever-reducing medications and has an improvement in symptoms.  
    • It is recommended that the student/staff wears a mask when indoors and around others for days six through 10 and unmask on day 11.
