We want every senior’s photo included in the yearbook.  It is important that the quality of your student’s image meets the printing standards set by our publishing company.  In order to meet the deadline, students will need to have their photos taken over the summer or early fall.  If you do not submit a professional photo, or do not meet the photo requirements, the student’s school photo from Dorian will be substituted.
