To provide a more polished yearbook portrait for all seniors, students who will be seniors for the 2019-2020 school year will have their pictures taken in May 2019 for the 2019-2020 school year by the school photographer. This will allow the photographer to spend more time with each student and allow students to dress formally for the photo. Photos will be taken May 14, 15, and 16 during the extended testing homerooms.

All 2019-2020 seniors are required to attend this photo session as it will also serve as their school ID picture for the 2019-2020 school year. These students will not be photographed again in August with the underclassmen during the first week of school.

The school photographer will provide drapes and tuxes for use. Students who wish to use this option should prepare by wearing a tank top (girls) or white undershirt (boys) under their dress-code appropriate top for the day. Students may also choose to dress in their own formal attire. All tops must be one solid color. (Darker colors are generally more flattering for portraits.) Boys must wear a collared shirt. Girls may wear a formal sweater (v-neck, turtleneck, crewneck, etc.). T-shirts are not permitted. Students should be dress code appropriate for the remainder of the school day.

Proofs will be sent home from the photographer over the summer and portrait packages will be available for order. Package pricing ranges from $20 – $105.

Students may still choose to submit a portrait from a private photographer for the senior section of the yearbook. This session ONLY includes a formal portrait (no clothing changes for sports uniforms, etc.) with one background. (Requirements and deadlines for portraits completed by private photographers are available on the Publications website www.pahstidelines.com under the “Yearbook” tab.)
