Stuff You Need to Know

Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will have yearbook photographs taken on Tuesday, August 23, 2016,  during Physical Education, Health, and Driver Education classes. There is no cost for the yearbook photograph but students have the option to purchase photo packages and gift items using the pricing/information envelopes that were provided to students previously. Students with zero hour Physical Education should have their picture taken after their zero hour class during common prep time.  If a student doesn't have a Physical Education, Health, or Driver Education class, they should have their photograph taken during common prep, late-arrival or early-dismissal times, or during lunch periods. Photographs will be taken in the Spartan Gym. The information and pricing sheets are available on the website calendar. VIP also accepts payments online. Visit the school's website for more information.
