Yearbook Info

updated 14 June 2021

Yearbook sales and pickups have ended for 2021. If you bought a book but did not pick it up, you can get it in August when school starts again. Please do not ask the office staff to get your book for you–they do not have access to books over the summer.

Seniors:

All seniors should have their portrait taken for the yearbook at Prestige. Call 512-251-5558 or visit their website to schedule an appointment SOON. The deadline for having your yearbook portrait taken is October 1, If you have had your portrait taken at Prestige, you do not need to do anything else–they will send it to us for the yearbook. You will have the option of selecting your yearbook pose from your online proofs; if you do not select one, they will select it for you.

Senior Ads will be on sale soon. Watch your student email account and this space for updates.

Please note that an ad purchase does not include the yearbook unless you purchased the Senior Deluxe Package.

Underclassmen:

We will have Lifetouch on campus in September to take school pictures for on-campus learners in grades 9, 10, and 11. Watch your school email and this space for updates.

 

All Grades:

Ordering your yearbook: Once the online store opens on September 1, 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 $95 in May.  Yearbooks are typically 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.  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 cannot guarantee that we will be able to make the change, but we will try. We may not be able to make changes after September 30.

 

Proofs: All students have the opportunity to check their school portraits and name spellings. We make proofs available in alpha offices and with teachers as soon as we get them. Pay attention to student email accounts 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.
