This contains important information about completing student registration at York High School. 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 Booksales and pick up student information
  1. Residency Verification

    Parents/guardians of all incoming 9th graders (and families that have leases that expire prior to the start of the school year) must provide documents to the district to verify residency. Click here for the list of valid documents. You will not have access to your student’s schedule or powerschool if you do not prove residency.

You may provide these documents on the following dates at York High School in room A118 (please enter the building at door #1) between 5 p.m. - 8 p.m.:

  1. Tuesday, June 26th
  2. Wednesday, July 11th

  1. InfoSnap (District 205 online registration)

    Parents must begin the registration process by going online and updating their student’s information using the District 205 registration 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 to the high school booksale 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.
  2. Textbooks, Chromebooks & Fees

    The textbook list for the upcoming school year will be available on our Bookstore website now. The list can be found under the textbook tab. Please be aware that we are currently working to convert several texts to digital formats, which will be accessed by students on their Chromebooks. Book prices will be available in July.

    All incoming freshman as well as new students to District 205 will be required to purchase a Chromebook for $310.00 during booksales through the bookstore. Families cannot transfer a used Chromebook to a younger sibling. 
  3. Booksales and Student Information Pick-Up

The final step of the registration process requires York students to purchase textbooks and Chromebooks, pay fees, take a yearbook photo, and pick up handbooks, IDs, and student schedules. This process is completed in person during the hours listed below. Please note: families on vacation during booksales can purchase books and complete the York registration process in the Bookstore beginning August 14th.

Additional Information about the York Registration Process:
Yearbook Photos
All 9th, 10th and 11th 
graders will have a yearbook picture taken during booksales. Students should dress appropriately. Make-up dates are September 18th and 19th in the Commons.

Student IDs
Each student will receive an ID and lanyard 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 booksales in August.

Incoming freshmen, transfer students and athletes must have current physicals. Forms are available on the York website and at www.elmhurst205.orgAn 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 2018-2019 school year.
