TGMS Welcome Days – Aug 1 and 2

Greetings  from Toll Gate Middle School!

We are busy getting ready for a successful start to the 2019 – 2020 school year! This year we are offering something new.

Parents will be given an opportunity to pick up their student’s homeroom placement and additional back to school information on Aug. 1, from 1:30 – 3:30 for families with last names beginning A – M and on Aug. 2, from 1:30 – 3:30 for last names beginning N – Z.

But there will be some homework for our parents!

In order to take advantage of this early pick up, parents must go online to the Pickerington Schools website at http://www.pickerington.k12.oh.us go to District News, click the “Back to School” header on the left hand side and follow the steps to complete the required OneView Portal forms. It is critical for the safety of our students to have these forms completed as soon as possible. The forms include Emergency Medical Authorization, field trip permission, handbook acknowledgement and our device agreement for the Chromebooks. Follow the step-by-step instructions. Much of the information is carried over from last year when parents completed the forms and will simply need to be updated, a real time saver! New to the district? Please follow the instructions in Step 1 to set up your account.

So what can you expect when you come in to pick up your placement packet?

 You will be given a checklist to direct you to individual stations.

Station 1: Verification of Forms – Chromebooks will be set up to assist any who does not have their forms completed

Station 2: Parents may pay fees

Station 3: Chromebook pick up for 6th grade students only

Station 4: Pick up Homeroom placement packet

Please note that Welcome Days are for completing paperwork only.  The building will not be open to tour or meet staff.

If you are unable to pick up your information packet all placement information will be mailed August 2. For verification purposes packets will only be given to a parent/guardian of our students.
