Yearbook Update: Because of COVID, there are a few changes you need to be aware of: 

  1. We will NOT be ordering extra yearbooks to be purchased the day of distribution. If you want a yearbook, go ahead and order it now! The VERY LAST day to order is Memorial Day, May 31.www.jostensyearbooks.com 
  2. In order to include as much of the spring as possible, the yearbook deadlines have been pushed back. This means all of the sports you are currently playing and events happening in April and early May will be covered in the yearbook! This is a first! This also means that yearbooks will arrive later than usual. We don't have exact plans yet, but Yearbook Pick Up will run similarly to last year where you will come by during the summer and pick it up sometime in mid July.
