Reporting An Absence

Attendance Line:  614-830-2201

Parents/guardians are asked to notify the school by 9:00 a.m. when their student is going to be absent. Messages left on the Attendance Line will be retrieved and updated in Infinite Campus each school day, by the Attendance Secretary.

Attendance is calculated into a student’s record as follows:
– 1/2 day absence is charged when a student has missed at least 1 hour and 25 minutes
– A full day is charged when a student has missed 3 hours and 45 minutes or more.

The State of Ohio BOE, through EMIS Reporting, counts every minute that a student is not present in school. Those minutes are added up by the State of Ohio BOE for the total amount of time out of school. Pickerington Schools will keep you informed via attendance letters periodically throughout the school year. You may also choose to check attendance through your Infinite Campus parent portal.

HOMEWORK: When absent students can check Google Classroom for assignments, and follow any instructions set forth by teachers (such as their own website, their syllabus, etc.). The student may email their teachers directly with any questions, or for any additional handouts outside of Google Classroom.

We appreciate and thank every student and all of our families for attending to attendance matters and therefore honoring our Lakeview Values by respecting yourself, others, school, and learning.

PRE-PLANNED ABSENCES:

Use this form to notify the school of a Pre-planned Absence, when you know your student will be missing school for an extended period of time.

Fees

School fees can be paid through your Infinite Campus Parent Portal.  All types of fees may be paid by cash, check or money order (payable to PLSD) or credit card. Online payments are applied to Infinite Campus accounts immediately and are highly encouraged.

Change of Address / Updating Student Information

All requests for changes of address on school records must be submitted to the Welcome Center for processing. Residential address changes cannot be processed by a child’s school office staff or by Petermann Transportation.

Any changes to a student’s home address must be requested on the district’s change of student information form. This form includes a standard authorization, to be signed by the parent, allowing for the release of residential and utility information to Pickerington Schools upon request, if necessary.

This release also includes an explanation, per Ohio Revised Code, as to how it is determined where your child is to receive his/her tuition-free, public school education. By signing this release, you are also verifying that you have been informed of your legal responsibility to withdraw a child from school if you ever move outside school district boundaries. It also informs you of your tuition obligations if you fail to withdraw.

If you do not have the capability to print the form, contact the Welcome Center at 614.920.6180. We will be happy to mail, email or fax the form to you for completion. You also may pick up or return the form directly to the Welcome Center, rather than turning it in at your school office for intra-office transfer to us. This expedites the address change process.

After a change of student information form is received at our Welcome Center, the request will be checked to verify that:

  • the request has been signed and dated by the parent of the student;
  • acceptable proof of the change in residence is attached to the request;
  • an open enrollment request has been completed, if applicable. This is necessary if a change of residence, made during the school year, causes a change in the student’s attendance area but the parent wishes to have the student finish the current school year at his/her current building. Such a request is only considered for the student’s continued attendance through the end of the current school year. Note that buses do not cross school boundary lines to accommodate open enrollment students. Parents are responsible for transportation.

If the move has caused a change in the building the student is to attend, the involved school buildings are notified and the electronic and physical transfer of records takes place. Arrangements for the official start date in the new school can be made between you and the office staff of your child’s new school.

 

 

Bus transportation after change of address

The Welcome Center will notify Petermann Transportation of your change of home address. If bus service is available in your new area for your child, we begin the steps needed to arrange a new bus stop location “from and to” your new residence. Petermann staff establish all bus stops and notify drivers as quickly as possible. Your school building office staff will obtain all bus stop information from Petermann Transportation.

If a new bus stop must be established at any point in the route where the driver does not currently make a stop, this process may take two to three days. If necessary, your child’s school office can issue a bus pass if your child must ride the bus before the change can be finalized by Petermann Transportation.

This change in address change procedure applies only to changes in the actual physical address where a parent and the student reside. A temporary change of bus stop location at a place other than the student’s home (for situations such as babysitting arrangements) may be accepted in the school office of the building where your child attends.

A form requesting a new bus stop location can be downloaded from Petermann Transportation. The Welcome Center does not handle these changes. The forms should be submitted to your child’s school office or faxed them directly to Petermann Transportation.

Attendance Boundary Maps

The following maps provide a general outline of school building boundaries at the junior high and high school school levels. For a complete set of attendance maps, visit the district website.

Note that these maps should not be used when purchasing a home in Pickerington Schools, particularly near the shown boundaries. To confirm the attendance area of any property in the district, call our Welcome Center at 614.920.6180.

Volunteer in Our School

Individuals interested in volunteering in our schools must fill out a volunteer application and submit it to the building principal.

Volunteers are approved for one school year at a time, so a new form is required to continue volunteering each school year.

Volunteers are very much appreciated, thank you very much!

School Security Practices when visiting PLSD buildings

When visiting any Pickerington school, you will find a buzzer on either side of the school’s main entrance doors, that will buzz the front office to request entrance to the building. Please face the camera (which is usually near the bell button,) announce your name and the reason for your visit. Once you have been given permission to enter please be prepared to show your driver’s license or other valid ID to verify your identity. Once buzzed in through Lakeview’s main doors, you will be asked to sign in either to “Sign a Student In/Out” or as a “Visitor” if you will be staying in the building. Visitors will be given a Visitor’s Badge to wear while in the building.

If you are a PLSD school employee from another building, please be prepared to sign in. We have a Visitor’s Log for this purpose in the main office.

For all: Even if we know who is at the door, we are expected to follow these procedures. Thank you for your cooperation, patience and for helping to keep Pickerington Schools safe! We look forward to seeing you!
