Senior Class 2020-2021 Information:

Senior Portraits:

If you have a senior and they still have not taken their tux/drape portrait yet, we are excited to announce one more on-site opportunity next week: October 23rd. Prestige/Lifetouch is our schools official Senior Portraits Photographer and they will be on-campus October 23rd from 8-4pm to provide this photo opportunity. To sign up for a time slot, please use the link below. (No-walk-ins allowed.) This is a Teacher Workday, so there is no worry that students will miss class time!

To schedule your session:

1.     Please visit

2.     Select your school

3.     Select your date and time

4.     Bring your payment to the camera


Tux and Drapes will be cleaned (with a commercial steamer) between each use.  Each student will have their entire sitting photographed by the same photographer to keep person to person contact to a minimum.  Students, and one guest, will check in at the front lobby and staff will follow mask and social distancing guidelines. 

The sitting fee is $15 (at time of appointment) and students will be photographed in 1 outfit-Black Drape for ladies and Tuxedo for gentlemen. Additional details are provided on the link below:
