Questions and Answers
Who is chosen for the yearbook staff?
- Students who successfully complete Journalism I, desktop publishing class, and/or a photography class may apply to be a member of the yearbook staff. Requests to join and discussion about exceptions to the pre-requisites may be discussed with the adviser.
- Yearbook students plan the book, work through all publication details, work photography days, and complete the book.
How will Yearbook cover prom and graduation if you distribute the books in May?
- We will create a final "signature" of 16 pages to cover these momentous events as a supplement which will be distributed at the beginning of the following school year. Graduating seniors with a good address on file with the yearbook staff will have their supplements mailed.
I never picked up my yearbook(s). Where do I go to pick it up?
- Yearbooks from previous years are kept in the yearbook classroom. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and your book will be sent to the office and available for pick-up within two school days. Yearbooks left for more than two years will be donated back to the school for re-sale.
Why are senior pictures taken on campus instead of using outside photographers?
- To ensure consistency of photographs, we use one photographer for the class. In the past, by allowing students to use a variety of photographers, many of the photos did not adhere to the standards set and it caused multiple problems and delays in printing.
Why is the yearbook so expensive?
- In 2018, the actual cost per book was $83.00, so students who placed their orders early actually got a generous discount. We count heavily on Senior Tributes and Commercial Sponsors to offset the cost of the book to students. Every effort is taken to keep costs affordable.
