Frequently Asked Questions
Where do seniors get their pictures made?
Seniors need to contact Western Photo in Amarillo (373-5124), make an appointment and get their senior portraits taken BEFORE school starts. Because of FERPA law, we have been unable to release over 100 names and addresses of seniors to the photographer, so Western Photo may not be able to contact you. Please take action now!
How do I purchase a yearbook?
Students order yearbooks in English classes in September, and those orders are submitted to Jostens, our yearbook publisher. Jostens bills parents and students at the address submitted by the students. Orders and payment can also be handled online. Parents and students are allowed to make partial payments. Final payments must be received by Jostens in early February.
Yearbooks not paid for by the cut-off date are not ordered. A limited number of extra yearbooks are ordered and available for purchase until the supply is depleted. These books need to be purchased through Mrs. Smith in room 1305.
Students need to check with Mrs. Smith for current price and availability. Extra books are usually gone by the first day the yearbooks arrive, so it is very important to take care of your yearbook purchase early.
When will the books arrive?
The books usually arrive in early May.
How come yearbooks cost so much?
Yearbooks are 224 page custom designed and printed books. Students sell advertising to the community and to senior parents to help defray the cost of the books, which is much higher than what individual students pay. Think about how much money you spend on a CD or going to the movies, and you'll realize that a permanent collection of high school memories, photos, and events is worth what it costs to own...especially twenty years from now.
How can I be on the yearbook staff?
Students interested in being on yearbook staff need to take Journalism 1 prior to applying for a staff position. The number of students interested in the journalism program has increased, and students need to have mastered Journalism 1 skills in order to perform at their best in both advanced journalism classes ( yearbook and newspaper).
