Yearbook Info

Updated 2020, June 5

Production of the 2020 yearbook is complete.

The Balfour plant where our book is printed was closed by government order during April and May due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They were able to re-open on May 18, and our book was among the first to roll through the presses.

We are working with Dr. Acosta to schedule a safe distribution event for students to pick up their yearbooks. At this time, there is a tentative plan to do this in late July, after some school staff have returned to work.

We plan to email a unique claim ticket to each purchaser to simplify and make safer the distribution of books.

As soon as we know the details, we will send the information out in as many ways as we possibly can.

You may still order a book at this link while supplies last.

Seniors: You should have your senior portrait taken by Prestige over the summer. If you have not, please contact them immediately to schedule your appointment. 512-251-5558 or at this link. Only senior portraits taken by Prestige will be used in the senior portrait section of the yearbook. The deadline for having your senior portrait taken is November 1.  If you miss this deadline your portrait will not be included in the yearbook. For your senior ad, you may submit any photos.

Senior Ads are on sale from August 1 to November 1. Deadlines, designs, and pricing options have changed significantly.  The ad deadline is November 1 to purchase and submit all materials for printing. Check out this form NOW for the details!

You can pay for your senior ad and yearbook online at the same time, once online sales open August 1. There’s even a discount package for a yearbook with a full-page ad. The deadline for placing a senior ad is October 31. Here is a form with detailed information about Senior Ads–you can print the first page if you wish to pay in person rather than online. Please understand that after purchasing your ad you must get the pictures and text to us by November 1. We cannot refund your money if you miss the deadline. We will make every effort to contact you, but it is your responsibility to meet the deadline.


Underclassmen: School pictures will be taken during your English classes on September 10 and 11. If you miss that day, there will be a make-up day on October 23.

If you miss the picture days and the make-up day, your photo will not be in the yearbook. These dates are subject to change, so please check your student email account regularly and pay attention to posters and announcements. Follow us on Twitter @whsStudentPress for up-to-date announcements.


Ordering your yearbook: Click here to order your yearbook. You should also receive an order form in the mail from Balfour. Order IN THE FALL for the best price…books get more expensive as the year goes on. We do not plan to order a lot of extra books, so order now to make sure you get one. The yearbook price is $75 in August, $85 in January, and $100 in May.  Yearbooks are distributed during lunches on an announced day in mid-May and may be picked up in D-1311 any time after that.   Any yearbooks that are not picked up by the last day of school become the property of the yearbook staff and may be re-sold. The deadline to order a yearbook is April 30. Sales will close on that date until after distribution day. After distribution day, any remaining books may be purchased for $100, cash only, on a first-come, first-served basis. The only way to be certain you will get a book in May is to order it before March 1, as that is when our exact quantities are set and it is possible we may sell out of books before the end of April.


Name changes: If you want us to use a different name in the yearbook other than the one in the official school records, you have until September 30 to tell us. Come by D-1311, or send us an email at [email protected]. We may not be able to make changes after this date.


Proofs: All students have the opportunity to check their school portraits and name spellings. We post proofs in alpha offices as soon as we get them. Pay attention to student email accounts and Twitter for announcements on this. Once proof time has passed, we won’t be able to make changes. Proofs usually happen in November or December.


Be careful with opt-out forms from the district. Each year, we have students who are not allowed to be pictured in the yearbook because their parents signed the form saying not to picture them; usually, this was unintentional.


If you don’t want to be pictured in the yearbook, please don’t show up for portraits or group photos. We cannot remove an entire group’s photo because of one person. Please take responsibility for your own actions.
