2022 YEARBOOK DISTRIBUTION:
Wednesday June 1st: 12:40PM-2PM
Thursday June 2nd: 12:40PM-2PM
BUT I DIDN’T MAKE IT TO THOSE DATES: There is no distribution Friday or Saturday. Yearbook orders that included shipping are being shipped to the address provided during purchase. We realize the frustration of not getting your book delivered before the end of the school year. We are frustrated too. Our plan was to distribute yearbooks during dead week this year but due to complications vis our photo company, Lifetouch, the yearbook printing was delayed by 3 months which resulted in all books being printed at the last minute. This also meant a +$2000 expedited shipping cost to make sure they were delivered finals week. (They were originally set to not be delivered until June 4th). Lifetouch agreed to pay for the cost of this expedited shipping and you may contact Jenny Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding this.
Yearbooks are no longer available for purchase. We will have a limited quantity available for purchase in the fall during registration week. Yearbooks will be $100 or $65 for those who can provide documentation of free/reduced lunch eligibility.
Please fill out this google form to be contacted about when and where you can pick up yearbooks in August.
2021 or earlier YEARBOOK DISTRIBUTION:
Distribution is completed for the school year as of June 2nd 2022.
