Senior Portraits

How to make sure that your portrait makes it into the yearbook!

We, the yearbook staff, understand that there are a lot of different things to think about this upcoming year, yearbook requirements being one small part of the senior year experience. We want to make sure that you are fully informed about all yearbook requirements and options.

You can purchase a book at any time throughout the school year. Keep in mind that the price will rise with time, so the earlier you purchase the book the better.

All sales will be made through the finance office with Debbie Ipson. You can buy them from her in person, or you can buy them online through JeffcoConnect where all other fees can be paid.

The yearbook is a production that goes on year-round. We work very closely with our publishers, Herff Jones, to make sure that we have a well-organized deadline calendar in order to ensure the best printing quality and timeliness.

For that reason, we will be very strict with our senior deadlines. The deadline to turn in senior photos will be October 16, 2017. After this date, we will charge a $15 fee for students who were unable to turn in their photos by that time. We will be able to accept fees in this manner until December 1, after which time we will not be able to accept any senior photos.

Please make sure that you schedule your sitting with your photographer to allow time for them to do touch ups and for you to submit the photo on time. Remember that the deadlines for senior photos are very similar for all schools in our area, so the earlier you contact your photographer the better.

Taking Your Senior Portraits

Before you submit your senior photo, please make sure you follow the restrictions and requirements:

Vertical photo, 300 dpi JPEG (.jpg or .jpeg), 2”x 3”

These requirements are set in place to ensure the best picture and printing quality. Most professional photographers are already aware of these requirements, but we want to make sure that you are aware of them as well. If these requirements are not made, the photo may not work in the book. In addition to these requirements, please make sure your face is clearly visible in the picture.

We have extra brochures and catalogs for preferred photographers available in the main office. These photographers are aware of these requirements and will submit your senior portrait for you (so, you don’t have to worry!).

One this site, we have included information on submitting your senior portrait. If you are using another photographer, give them a copy of these instructions so that they can submit your portrait before October 16.
