Registration for the 2017-2018 School Year

Dates to remember:
  • February 2 or 8: Open house registration - Select one evening to register between 4-8 pm. Parents and students must attend together. The evening's first stop will be a quick visit to the classroom of the student's advisory teacher. (Advisory teacher and room number are listed on the registration letter mailed to each student) The second stop is a check-in with the student's dean outside the media center. The final stop is at a computer in the Media Center to enter course requests.
 
Registration Open House
(February 2nd or 8th)

  • Students and parents pick one of the two nights to attend.
  • Come anytime between 4 pm and 8 pm.
  • Meet with advisor, dean, and then complete computer registration.
  • More details how to prepare are below.
Registration Night Check List
Before You Arrive to Register: 
  • Complete the front page of the registration worksheet completely.
  • Students should include 14 courses selections and 5 alternates. (Courses that require 2 spaces count as 2 courses.)
  • Make sure a career interest is listed to help facilitate discussion of course selections.
  • Parents should sign the registration sheets allowing for release of student transcripts.
On the Night of Registration:

  • Begin with the student's advisory teacher. The advisory teacher will: 
    • answer questions as they are able
    • review that worksheets are complete and correct
    • talk with students/parents about the student's plan for the future
    • sign-off on worksheets, and send parents/students to meet with their dean.
  • Students/parents will have a brief meeting with their deans to:
    • answer questions that remain
    • review registration worksheets
    • make additional suggestions as appropriate
  • Students will then  move to computers to input their final registration selections and alternates. When students have entered all requests, they'll be asked to:
    • Tear off the back page of the registration worksheet to keep as their record. (Another option would be to take a picture of the back page and turn in the entire worksheet)
    • Turn in their course request worksheet before leaving. Deans keep those copies for reference.
    • Students do NOT need to print a copy of their course requests. That information should be filled out on the back page of the worksheet. 


Forest Lake Area School's American Indian Education Program has begun and is open to Native students interested in learning more about our Native American culture and heritage.  Meetings are Thursdays after school from 2:45-4:30 at the high school in room 544.   Students can take the activity bus home.  Each week there will be an activity or project focused on the past, present and future of Native American history, culture and current events.   If you have any questions please contact us.


School calendar change coming 2017

A calendar shift has been approved by the school board for the 2017-2018 school year. In 2017, the first day of school will be  August 21st and the last day of school in the spring of 2018 will be May 23rd, two weeks earlier than usual. This one-year calendar adjustment will allow extra time in the summer to complete construction projects at many of the district's buildings without disrupting student learning.
 
The school year calendar returns to normal in 2018-2019, with the first day of school scheduled after labor day and the last day scheduled for early June.
 
The approved district calendar for 2017-2018 can be found  here and 2018-2019 calendar can be found   here on the district website.
 
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to upgrade learning spaces around the district.
