    The deadline to submit senior portraits for printing in the 2019-2020 yearbook is January 31. Please feel free to have your pictures taken at the studio of your choice. There are guidelines that must be followed for the yearbook photo in order to maintain consistency in the senior portrait section of the book. Please observe the following requirements when selecting your yearbook pose:

    Senior Portrait Requirements:

      • Digital image on a CD, flash drive, or emailed to (jpeg @300dpi)
      • Images should be wallet sized or larger (2.5” x 3.5”) (CDs/flash drives will not be returned unless requested)
      • Head size should be 1.5” (measured from the top of the head to the bottom of the chin)
      • All pictures must be submitted in full color (no sepia or black-and-white)
      • Vertical portraits only
      • Head and shoulders only (no hands, arms, or other body parts may appear)
      • Background should be a portrait of your choice. Please make sure it features your face. Backgrounds need to be plain: Yes- bricks, doors, etc.  No- flowers, trees, or backgrounds that take away from you.
      • Have your photographer leave enough space around your face to allow for the yearbook staff to feature you at your best within the design
    • Dress is semi-formal. This means…
    • Males: solid-color collared shirts, polos or sweaters. Ties, sport coats or suit coat are optional
    • Females: dress suits, dresses, formal blouses or sweaters. No low-cut tops, please.
    • Both: Do not violate Jackson’s Student Handbook. For instance, not hats; no sunglasses; no revealing or distasteful clothing (suggestive, revealing, or low-cut clothing is not permitted); no clothing that promotes alcohol, drugs, tobacco, firearms, or that contains obscene or profane language or illustrations. You can locate the Student Handbook on the high school’s website if you have questions.
    • No signatures or watermarks on the image (names, graduation years, etc.).
    • Note: pictures with “soft focus” appear blurred upon reproduction. Do not use “soft focus.”
    • The yearbook staff has the right to request a different photograph if the above guidelines are not met.
    • Students who do not submit a senior portrait OR fail to follow the requirements have the option to use their Lifetouch portrait in the yearbook. (Picture taken in the fall for your IDs)

    Submission protocol:

    You must submit your image through email, on a CD, or flash drive. CDs and flash drives can be given to the main office.

    ***Images MUST be at least 300dpi!***
