Also for any student that is withdrawing from the district or sophomores that will be attending either of the career centers next year.

On Tuesday, May 26th from 8:00 – 3:00 PM at Diley Middle School, PLSD will be collecting all equipment from seniors. Equipment includes Chromebook, Chromebook power cord, PLSD hotspot, library books, textbooks, graphing calculator, band and orchestra instruments, and band/choir/orchestra uniforms. Also, the PLSD Treasurer’s Office will be available to pay any remaining fees. Then, if all of the equipment is returned and all fees have been paid, seniors will be awarded their diploma. Below are more of the specifics. 

Please use the following list to determine what you need to bring to the Collection Day.

  • PLSD Chromebook
  • Chromebook power cord (there are two parts)
  • PLSD Hotspots

  • PLSD Textbooks
  • Any other equipment borrowed from the Media Center (i.e. Graphing Calculator)

The schedule for the day will be divided by last name:

    • PHSC, PHSN, PAS students with last names A – G at 8:00 – 9:30 AM
    • PHSC, PHSN, PAS students with last names H – M at 9:30 – 11:00 AM

There is no makeup day, all seniors are required to return all equipment on Tuesday, May 26th. 

All students/families need to remain in their vehicles the entire time through the turn-in process.  We have created a flow of traffic with eight stations to properly and safely turn in all equipment. 

 

Chromebook Collection Inspections and Device Fines

All devices collected on May 26th will be inspected for damages and fines may be applied. The devices will not be inspected immediately upon collection so that we can reduce any potential exposure to bacteria and viruses. All devices are scheduled to be fully inspected and for fines to be applied by the end of June at the latest. 

Any fines applied after collections will need to be paid in full. Transcripts will be held until said fees are paid. Fines may range anywhere from $5 to $344. 

  • Non-return or destroyed Chromebooks will be $300 (+ the power adapter if applicable).
  • Power adapters for 2016 through 2018 models are $22 and $44 for the 2019 model.

If you have purchased the Technology Protection Plan and damages are found, those costs will be applied to any remaining coverage. If the coverage has been consumed any remaining fines will be applied directly to infinite campus. 

For those who opted out of the Protection Plan, fines will be applied directly to your infinite campus account. 

Collection Day will be held at Diley Middle School — 750 Preston Trail Dr, Pickerington, Ohio 43147
