Virtual Registration and Open House

All necessary forms can be filled out online with all the fees paid for via Infinite Campus. Schedules will be released for students electronically via Infinite Campus as well.

Because students typically have the opportunity to walk their schedules and get their lockers set up at Open House, we wanted to make sure students still have that opportunity to do so. In order to keep safe through physical distancing, please sign up for a time on the designated SignUp Genius link below.

Staff will not be present during these times, therefore QR codes will be located on classroom doors to introduce the teacher to the families.
Students are expected to purchase their own combination lock from Lake Denoon Middle School. As with current combination locks, these locks can be opened by a school administrator to search the contents if the need arises. The lock’s serial number must be registered with school personnel. Students may NOT purchase/use an outside lock. During our Open House, students will be able to find their assigned locker. More information will follow before Open House. For 2020-21, only incoming fifth grade and new LDMS students or those needing a lock because it was lost need to purchase one. During the school year, lost or replacement locks can be purchased in the Student Services office. Fifth graders and New Students will be getting locks during the Chromebook pick up.
All students need to have their pictures taken for the yearbook and honor card. There is no cost for this unless you choose to order pictures.
Pictures will be taken September 30 and October 1.
Pictures can be ordered online, now through October 8th Click Here, go to school search and use the drop down menu to select “Lake Denoon Middle School 2020-2021”. From there follow the instructions to complete picture ordering. Sports Pics will send your child’s picture order directly to your home.
School Supplies 2020-21
It is time for school supply shopping! Below you will find a link with supplies needed for the upcoming year.
Given that students will be required to use masks throughout the day, the district will provide a limited number of face masks to each student. Students are welcome to bring additional masks if needed.
