    Senior Yearbook Pictures
     

    ATTENTION CLASS OF 2016: Graduation is quickly approaching! Have you submitted your senior picture to the yearbook?

     

    1.  All students wanting their picture in the senior section of the yearbook must have had a picture taken by Lifetouch even if you plan to use your own senior picture. This serves as your place holder in the yearbook. (This was announced prior to Lifetouch pictures in the fall on September 18th.)

     

    2. You may submit your own senior picture to be used in the yearbook:

    Pictures must meet the following requirements:

    • picture must be of professional quality, you can have your photographer email us your headshot or submit it yourself.
    • picture must be submitted on or before Friday, March 4, 2016.
    • picture image can be no larger than 8MB
    • picture must be submitted to Mrs. Walton and saved to a disc or jump drive in .jpeg format or via email to Candice.Walton@vinton.k12.oh.us
    • only headshots will be accepted (try to aim for shoulder area and up)

     

    3.  Please keep this in mind. We value you as a yearbook customer and we do our best to ensure efficiency and strive for perfection in regards to our yearly publication. Yearbook cannot guarantee that your personal submitted picture will appear in the yearbook. That is why we provide you with these guidelines to help ensure success. Please note it is policy that refunds will not be given. Senior pictures have been left out of the yearbook in past years for various reasons. Technology doesn’t always cooperate, sometimes picture resolution does not meet requirements, and images have been lost from our publication website prior to publication. (Yes, these are worst case scenarios! We normally have a nice hardcover yearbook after a lot of work, and fun, from a wonderful staff of students!)

     

    4. Yearbook reserves the right to determine the appropriateness of your picture.  If it is unsuitable, we will use your Lifetouch photo. All picture must be school appropriate.

     

    5. Your picture might appear slightly different in the book due to publisher printing.

     

    Pictures that do not meet all of the above requirements will not be used.  Yearbook will not crop images or change picture resolution.  When we have to crop images, it often distorts the image, which means that our website will not accept it.  If we are unable to use your senior picture, we will use your Lifetouch photo instead. Remember: just because you submit your own photo it does not guarantee that it will be the photo that appears in the yearbook senior section! We try our best to make sure every senior is happy. If we have problems with your headshot we will contact you and try to see if you have an alternative picture you would like to use. We want your senior yearbook to be a place you can reference some of your happiest moments from your last year in high school!  

    Parent Grad Ads for Yearbook
     

    Dear Senior and/or Senior Parent:

    Graduation and honoring our special graduates of the class of 2016 is quickly approaching. Seniors, are your parents or grandparents looking for a special way to honor or surprise you as a graduate? Do you have a baby picture, dance memory, favorite group pic of you and your friends, selfie, athletic or club memory, or senior picture that you want etched into yearbook history? Do you want to run a favorite picture or special message of you and your friends in the yearbook? You can even share the cost with someone and buy together a graduate message and run your favorite pictures in the yearbook if you would like.

    The Vinton County High School Yearbook Staff is now taking orders for senior ads in the Vinton County High School Vintonian. All senior ads will be produced in full color, and will be featured in a section of the yearbook dedicated to YOU, the class of 2016 seniors.

    College Credit Plus
    (CCP) is the new program that replaces PSEOP (Post Secondary Enrollment
    Options Program).  This program allows for students to take college courses
    while they are still in middle or high school.  The expenses for the college
    courses are typically covered by the school district.  There are benefits and
    risks associated with being in CCP, so it is important that parents and their
    students learn as much as possible about this before they decide on
    participation.
    Every year we must hold a parent/student information
    meeting to provide details about how a student can get involved with CCP.

    The CCP Parent/Student Information Night for the 2015/16 year is: 

    Wednesday, February 17, 2016
    6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
    Location: 
    VCHS
    In the event of inclement weather and/or school closing that
    day, the meeting will be held the following week on Wednesday, February 24,
    2016, at the same time and location.

    Although attendance is not required, it is
    HIGHLY recommended.  Every college has different requirements for CCP
    admission and procedures, and if a parent/student is not present to get the info
    they need from the college reps, they are required to make contact with them on
    their own to insure that their student is meeting deadlines,
    etc.
    VCLSD also has a hard deadline for the "Intent to Participate"
    form.  Students who are considering doing CCP during the following school
    year MUST turn in a completed Intent to Participate form to Guidance by April
    1, 2016.  Failure to do so will disqualify them for CCP the following school
    year.
    If you have any questions, please feel free to call guidance
    .  Above all, I want to stress to students the importance of
    their parents being present for that CCP Parent/Student Information Night on
    2/17/16, and for turning in the Intent to Participate form to Guidance by
    4/1/16. 
    BTW - If a student turns in an Intent to Participate form
    and then they choose not to take classes through CCP, there is no obligation to
    do so.
