1) You must be the legal guardian of each child (ages birth – 18 years) who live in your home.  Each child may only be shopped for once, so if parents are not together, you must decide which parent will register and shop.

2) Your photo ID


3) Social Security Card for each child.  If you do not have the card you can bring a print out from the Social Security Administration or a 2015 tax return with the child’s # on it.  If your child is not a US citizen, you may bring their passport or other government issued ID.  We do not store this information, so you must bring it each year.

  • LPS district office letter stating free or reduced lunch eligibility. If you do not have, do not contact LPS; we will handle at registration.
