Senior Photo Information

on Thu, 08/21/2014 - 14:26
Senior pictures are due by October 13, 2014. Pictures received after October 13, 2014 are not guaranteed to be included in the yearbook.
Please submit your photos to Mark Till, Yearbook Advisor.  Photos can be emailed to:  If you email your senior photo, you will receive a confirmation email that it has been received. Most photos are submitted digitally.  Before emailing a senior picture or bringing in a CD, make sure your picture meets the following requirements:
300 dpi resolution: Anything less and you run the risk of having a photo that doesn’t reproduce well.
Format: jpg or tiff file title format: lastname_firstname.  For example: till_mark.jpg
Composition: Photos must be vertically oriented.  Horizontal photos will be cropped to focus on the senior.  The best pictures for the yearbook are close-ups focusing on the senior’s head and shoulders.  Any pictures deemed inappropriate or offensive will not be used.
Photo prints: If you are not submitting photos digitally, please bring in a print that is at least wallet-sized and reproduced professionally.  Many home printers do not print photos that reproduce well in the yearbook.  Please note, we may not be able to return actual prints. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.  We want your senior yearbook to have the best possible picture of you in its pages.

Practicing Lockdown Procedures

on Tue, 08/12/2014 - 11:01

State law requires schools to conduct two lockdown drills per year. Schools will be conducting a lockdown drill within the first two weeks of the school year, and again within the first two weeks after winter break. These drills will not be a simulation of a threat and are not intended to scare students. We do want students to take the drills seriously so they are familiar with lockdown routines and procedures.

If you have safety concerns, or notice any gaps in our security, then please tell the school principal. As parents, you have a valuable perspective that can help improve safety procedures. As gaps are identified, we will continuously refine and improve our lockdown procedures.
