Senior Portraits

It is not required to have a professional take your senior portrait. We

ex will have Lifetouch take school pictures at the beginning of the school year that can be used in our Yearbook. Remember, all students are required to have a photo taken. You may use any source / photographer, for the Senior Photo. Even a smart phone photo can look great. Just make sure it is good quality and we can see the students face easily. If you do not submit a photo, or your submitted photo does not meet the outlined specifications below, the photo taken by Lifetouch, if appropriate , will be used. Some Seniors like to dress-up and get funny pictures taken for Lifetouch, we won't use those. Please email us if there are any questions or problems. Yearbook staff can also take the Senior Photo for free.

Senior Pictures are due by December 1st
