Lakeside Legacy Project
The Student Government Association would like to introduce every incoming freshman and new teacher to the legacy of Lakeside pride, spirit, and excellence by giving them a Lakeside spirit shirt. We are collecting gently used Lakeside spirt wear to gift the newest members of our community in the fall.

Current students can drop off to Mrs. Boggs in room 1215 and community members can drop off in the LHS main office between the hours of 10:00am-1:30pm.

Please make sure all spirit wear is washed before donating.

If you do not have any old spirit wear but would still like to contribute, the Walgreens located on the corner of Lavista and Oak Grove Road has Lakeside spirit wear available for purchase.

If you live in any of our surrounding neighborhoods or happen to be a former Viking yourself, please share SGA's Instagram post or the flyer in this news post on your social media or on the Next-Door app!
Chromebook Collection is Here!

We are collecting 12th grade Chromebooks on May 6th and 7th, and 9-11th grades on May 13th, 14th, and 15th. Students will come to the media center with their 5th period class on the class’ assigned day. Any senior who has not returned their Chromebook AND charger or has not paid the replacement fee will not receive graduation tickets. 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Lost Charger

If you have lost a Chromebook charger, you may order one here to replace your lost charger, or you may pay the fine for the lost charger here. Alternatively, you may write a check to Lakeside High School for $35.70 with “Chromebook” in the memo.

Lost Chromebook

If you have lost your Chromebook, you are responsible for replacing it by using the Dekalb Parent Portal. If your Chromebook was stolen, make sure to have the police report on hand when you contact the portal. 

Chromebooks will not be required for finals. If a teacher needs you to have a Chromebook, they have reserved a class set. 

AP Testing
If you need your Chromebook for AP testing, you may hold onto it until the makeup times in the media center:
-Wednesday May 8, 7th Period (seniors)
-Monday, May 13, 5th Period (seniors)
-Friday May 17, 6th and 7th periods (everyone) <-- last chance to get those grad tickets!

Schedule Change Request Form
We are so excited to welcome you back to Lakeside for another great year! Please understand that at this point schedules are fluid and will be changing.  Our goal is to make sure every student has a complete schedule on the first day of school.

We will only be granting schedule changes for the following reasons:
1. A scheduling conflict resulting in a blank spot during a period.
2. A class that has already been taken and passed, including through summer school.
3. A missing class needed for graduation requirements.
4. A class that you did not request (We have the requests).

To see more information and request a change, please use the form linked here.
