School Pictures On Sept. 24

For all but seniors, school pictures will be taken by Lifetouch on a single day this year: Monday, Sept. 24. (The tentative day for make-ups is Oct. 29.) To purchase these images from Lifetouch, they must be pre-paid. Order forms are available for pick-up in the Attendance Office, in the Bluestone Lobby.

Senior portraits will be taken by Lifetouch/Prestige Portraits at school in a few weeks, with a date still to be determined. Senior tuxes or drapes will be provided for the photos. Sign up outside Room 330.

All orders must be pre-paid at the shoot. The sitting is free for the yearbook pose and 2-3 proofs, contact Lifetouch for fee information for other shots.

For seniors who would rather be photographed at another studio, be sure that portraits adhere to the following specifications:

1. formal dress (the drape for women, a tux top for men)
2. "midnight blue" or other standard, dark blue background (shouldn't cost extra)
3. photo should be head and shoulders, with the bottom of the frame hitting mid-chest level. Any size from Lifetouch [2-15/16" x 2-3/16" OR 2-3/16" x 1-5/8" OR 1-15/16" x 1-7/16"] is fine.

Photos from other studios are due to Mr. White no later than Wednesday, Nov. 21. Pictures received after the 21st may be excluded from the senior section.  Digital images must be at least 300 dpi and can be emailed to mwhite@gsgis.k12.va.us or delivered on a CD or flash drive.
