2024 Yearbook Information: Pre-Purchasing a Yearbook

YEARBOOK PRE-PURCHASING IS OPEN

The Early Bird pricing for the 2023-2024 yearbook opened August 2, 2023 for $55 and books can be purchased online using your student's account in the district's payment website, Touchbase. On December 1st, pricing will go up to $65 per book and sales will end completely January 19, 2024. You can sign in to Touchbase using your student's login and password to see if you purchased a book. Because we order books based on the number of books purchased ahead of time, your book is only guaranteed if you pre-purchase! We do not hold purchased yearbooks after October 1, 2024, so make sure to claim your book at distribution events.

Yearbook updates concerning sales, distribution and more can be found in the daily announcements, on this website, our @SummitInsider Instagram account, and Summit's Facebook page.

2024 Senior Photos

SENIOR PHOTOS ARE DUE WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2023

Seniors are encouraged (but not required!) to submit their own senior photos via the Herff Jones website www.hjeshare.com. Our school code is "skostorm." Make sure you select "Upload Your Portrait" after entering your contact information. YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE AN EMAIL CONFIRMATION THAT YOUR PHOTO HAS BEEN UPLOADED. If you see the green checkmark and the screen that says "Upload Complete Thanks for Sharing" then you uploaded correctly! We will contact you personally if there are any issues with the portrait. If no photo is submitted, the senior's school photo will be used in the yearbook.

Please note: This is not required! However, if you are in need of low-cost senior portrait options, please email [email protected]

Senior Photo Requirements:

  1. Photos must be HEAD SHOTS from the chest up with the full head in view. Full body or 3/4 shots will be cropped to fit specifications and could result in a low-quality image.
  2. Full color (No black and white or sepia tones)
  3. In focus and only lightly edited
  4. Vertical orientation, not horizontal. Please do not submit tilted photos.
  5. Face should be well lit and fully visible. Eyes should be looking at the camera. Avoid dark shadows or dappled shadows across the face. Hats, hoodies and anything else that obscures the student’s recognizable features will not be accepted. Clothing should reflect what is appropriate at school for all genders.
  6. Photos should only contain the senior (no friends, pets, props, etc.)
  7. No selfies
  8. Your photographer should make sure they are shooting high resolution photos. Images should be submitted as JPEG files at 300 dpi resolution. (File sizes over 8MB may be difficult to upload.)
  9. The name of your file should be your last name_ first name_ 2024.jpg. (Example: Smith_Joaquin_2024.jpg)
  10. Upload the photo to www.hjeshare.com. Summit’s access code is "skostorm." (Do NOT email photos! Using the online method results in higher quality images. Herff Jones customer service can help you with uploading if you have questions about the process.)

All requirements for the photo must be met. If they are not, the student’s school ID photo will be used. The actual use of your submitted photo is at the discretion of the yearbook adviser and staff. Individuality is a-okay, but offensive or low-quality photos will not be used.

Senior Ad Purchasing

SENIOR ADS ARE DUE DECEMBER 1st!

Senior Ads or Friendship Ads are a great way to congratulate your senior and show off more gorgeous senior photos! Remember those fantastic shots with props and pets that you can't use as a senior portrait? Want to show off photos of your child and their lifelong friendships? This is where they go!

Please confirm that you also pre-ordered a yearbook on Bend LaPine's Touchbase system under your student's name to make sure your senior will get a copy of the yearbook and see your ad!

TWO OPTIONS FOR CREATING YOUR SENIOR AD:

1. You can send an email to [email protected] . Attach the photos and personalized message you want in the ad, let us know what size you’d like to purchase, and a student will create the ad. Payment options (by check or online) will be emailed back to you and you’ll have a chance to approve the ad before it is printed. Please choose your photos and craft your message carefully before sending your email. We will not be able to switch out photos or change text once we have begun the design process. If you would like to experiment with different configurations, we encourage you to use the Herff Jones ad designer program instead.

OR

2. You can create and purchase your own ad online at Herff Jones** This is the best option for you if want to experiment with different pictures and play around with the layout.
