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
  • 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!
