    Emails: We send information home electronically often. Please ensure you provide a valid email for at least one guardian. If your email or phone number changes during the school year, please notify the school office or request the change through Skyward.

    Proof of Residency: 
    Proof of residency can be submitted digitally through the Skyward Registration process, or you can bring it to the school before August 31. You can also bring it in when we open computer labs (see below) in August for onsite registration. School offices will re-open August 2.  
    You will only be asked to provide proof of residency for your child if:
    1. The student has had an address change. 
    2. The student is entering 6th grade or 9th grade. 


    If you do not have a device to use for registration:
    A computer lab at Edison Jr. Sr. High School will be open on 8/10/2023 and 8/11/2023 from 1:00pm-6:00pm. Enter through Door A. A Spanish translator will be available both days.  You can also use the public computers at the Lake Station Public Library, located at 2007 Central Avenue.

    Out-of-District Note: If you live out-of-district, please fill out the Out-of-District Enrollment Request first. Do not fill out any other steps, unless you have received approval by the district first.

    Technology Tip: Online registration is most easily completed on a Chromebook, desktop computer or tablet. The larger screen makes it easier to view all information and fill out the necessary forms. When you register, maximize your internet browser screen to ensure you can see all available buttons.

However, in order to be considered for textbook free or reduced assistance (and possibly other educational benefits),  you must complete this form each year.  It is highly encouraged to complete this form as it provides additional benefits for you and the district, such as grants, program funding, textbook assistance and more.
