If you plan to have your student ride the bus for the 2019-2020 school year, you need to sign them up for transportation on the district website.  (This must be done yearly.) Please follow the link below:



Student Transportation Registration


Once you have submitted this form you will receive a call/email/letter from the bus company with your student(s) bus number along with your student(s) pick up and drop off time/location.

Additional Information:  If your student(s) will be riding a different bus that they usually would during the school year (to go to a friend’s house, etc.), the parent/guardian needs to contact Stefany at the District Office 2-3 DAYS IN ADVANCE in order to receive a bus pass for their student.

 If you have any further questions regarding transportation, please call Stefany Ianiro at 218-847-9271.

2019-2020  Online Activity Registration



Laker activity registration is now online.  The link is located above.  A guide for registration can be found on the Middle School website in the upper right hand corner, under "Latest News". The student's six-digit Skyward ID will be required in order to register. Please access the student's Skyward account for this information.

7th Graders and any student who did not participate in activities during 7th grade will need to have an athletic physical on file at the Detroit Lakes Middle School before they will be able to register online. The physical needs to be completed on the Minnesota State High School League form. Well-child checks do not qualify as a sports physical. 

**Before online registration can be completed, the athletic physical needs to be on file at the Middle School.  The physical form can be dropped off at the Middle School and deposited in the locked gray box outside of the office.
