3. YEARBOOK LAYOUT INFORMATION

Along with a portrait photo, the yearbook would like to also include a candid, less formal photo of the senior students. These photos will be placed alongside their formal portraits. Students will also be given a Senior Questionnaire to fill out at the beginning of the school year to accompany their photos.  These photos can be selfies, candid shots taken with a cell phone, or less formal non-portrait photographs from a professional photographer.
The standard rules apply for these photos as well, ONLY SCHOOL APPROPRIATE attire and gestures. NO WEAPONS of any kind will be permitted in the photos. The size of these photos are significantly smaller, so the resolution is less of a concern. AGAIN, the deadline for this photo is October 31ˢᵗ, 2022.
