Steps to complete York High School Registration

Each student must complete the following steps to successfully register for the start of school:

  1. Complete Residency Verification
  2. Complete InfoSnap (District 205 online registration)
  3. Buy textbooks, Chromebooks, & pay fees
  4. Attend Book sales and pick-up student information.


  1. Residency Verification
    Parents/guardians of all incoming 9th graders (and any York student who does not have a current lease on file) must provide documents to the high school to verify residency. Click here for the list of valid documents.


  2. InfoSnap (District 205 online registration)
    Parents must begin the registration process by going online and updating their student’s information using the District 205registration website: www.elmhurst205.org/InfoSnap. At the beginning of May, InfoSnap emails (or letters if there is no email address on file) were sent to all families. Please note that families must complete InfoSnap prior to proceeding with the high school registration process.

    For families without Internet access, computers will be available to complete InfoSnap during book sales in August. Families with questions regarding the online registration process may call 630-617-2458.


  3. Textbooks, Chromebooks & Fees
    Textbook list for the upcoming school year is now available on our Bookstore website. The list can be found under the textbook tab.

    All incoming freshman as well as new students to District 205 will be required to purchase a Chromebook for $300.00 during booksales through the bookstore.  Families can not transfer a used Chromebook to a younger sibling.  


  4. Book Sales and Student Information Pick-Up

Beck’s “Search by ID” function will allow families to access a student-specific list of textbook titles and required course fees. Families interested in the prepack option can visit www.YorkHighSchoolBookstore.com.  Site will be ready for orders in early July, and all orders must be placed by July 24th, 2017. Express orders will be bundled and ready for pick up on the dates designated above.  Books and course fees will be paid on the day the books are picked up.


Paying for Textbooks, Chromebooks and Fees
Textbooks, Chromebooks, fees and yearbooks can all be purchased in one transaction per student with cash, check, or credit card (MasterCard, Discover or Visa). Families with multiple students, will have to bring multiple checks.

  • District Financial Assistance for Student Fees and Books – Families that meet guidelines established by the District can receive assistance with fees, Chromebook and book costs.  To receive assistance, the Request for Financial Assistance form must be completed and returned to the District Office with the required supporting documentation.

Additional information about the York Registration process:

Yearbook Photos
All 9th, 10th and 11th graders will have a yearbook picture taken during book sales. Students should dress appropriately.  Make-up dates are September 13 and 14 in the Commons.


Student IDs
Each student will receive an ID during registration which must be worn by the student at all times. The ID also serves as an activity pass. This pass may be used for entry into regular season home athletic events, concerts, plays, and to participate in intramural activities and clubs. Student IDs are also required to ride the bus and enter the cafeteria.


Student Schedules
All students will receive their schedules during book sales on August 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.  


Incoming freshmen, transfer students and athletes must have current physicals. Forms are available on the York website and at www.elmhurst205.org. An athletic physical does not meet the requirements for a Freshman Physical.  


Due to a change in the State’s immunizations requirements, all seniors must provide proof of two doses of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine to the high school by the start of the 2017-2018 school year.
