Freshman students in the class of 2023 need to submit proof of a dental exam by May 15, 2020. School dental examinations must have been completed within the 18 months prior to the May 15 2020 deadline. A dental form can be downloaded from the LFHS Health Services page of the website.
Lake Forest High School District 115 uses an online registration system (PowerSchool). Parents will receive a SnapCode email for each District 115 student. Your SnapCode email contains a personalized link to complete online registration and fee payment.
To attend Book Pick-Up, participate in Fall athletics, and start school in August, the online registration and fee payment process must be completed by the registration deadline.
We encourage families to complete the online registration upon receipt of the SnapCode email. Your student's registration will not be completed until you have submitted the online registration and fee payment. You will receive a confirmation email after submission.

Students and parents have separate Powerschool accounts. New students are given their account information as part of the registration process during the summer or at school. Parents of new students are mailed a printed copy of their parent account information after the school year begins.
Parent accounts are not the same as student accounts. The PowerSchool parent account allows parents to sign up to receive emails for grades and attendance so they do not have to log in as often to view this information. Email notification can be sent daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or by request.
If you do not see the email notification icon when you log in this probably means you are signing in as your student with their account information.
