Pickerington Preschool 2021 Back to School Info

It might be summer, but here in Pickerington Schools we're already thinking about students coming back to school for fall! From supply lists to student handbooks, from school menus to easy ways to update your family's information online, this page is your one-stop shop with all the information you'll need to get your kids ready for school!

General Information

Preschool Information Packets

Preschool Information will be available to families approximately the last week of July.  The information will include forms that need to be completed and returned to the Preschool, Open House and/or Information Night details and tuition scheduled (for Peer Models).

The Preschool Handbook will be available online at https://www.pickerington.k12.oh.us/pickerington-preschool/at-a-glance/.

The supply lists can be found on this page.

Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19, the Preschool Calendar will be available at Open House and/or Information Night.  It will also be posted online as soon as we have more definitive information.
