It is yearbook policy that all underclassmen must be photographed by Boyd Anderson Photography Studio (per district contract). We cannot use portraits from other companies, previous years, or any other supplied photo.
Missed deadline: If a student is not present on the day of school pictures (usually April/May of the previous year) there will be a scheduled make up day at school during the new school year (September). It is the responsibility of the individual to get their photo taken. Yearbook and administration will announce picture day in the bulletin and around campus. There may also be a possible make up session at the Boyd Anderson Studio. Students/parents must coordinate that appointment with the company. After that last make up session, it will likely be too late to place a photo in the yearbook. Yearbook needs to receive a disk from the photographer by early October to meet deadlines.
