Attention Thurston Seniors!
It’s time to get a move on senior pictures for the 2015 Yearbook.

Due to the volume of calls and emails we are receiving regarding senior pictures we wanted to remind families of the deadlines and requirements for senior pictures.
Some guidelines:
• Senior portraits should be taken by the end of October.
The yearbook staff must receive the finished photo, and your senior quote, by December 19th. No Exceptions!
• You may choose the studio of your choice or take them yourself. However, we find that professional pictures are often of higher quality.
• You do not need to buy an expensive package. Most studios do Yearbook-only photos for around $50.
• We will use photos from registration if we do not have your senior photo.
• You may choose the background you want, but make sure that the background is a uniform, solid, or neutral color, or an outdoor or black-and-white shot.
• Contact Thurston Publications with questions at 541.744.5043
Our dress requirements are few, but we cannot accept photos with the following:
√ Low-cut or inappropriate tops, Props such as hats, instruments, pets, etc, Soft focus or variety backgrounds, Body shots
Photo Printing Specs: Give these to your photographer:
√ Face size: 1” from top of forehead to bottom of chin.
√ Photo size: No smaller than 1 3/4” wide x 2 1/4” high.
√ This year we are not accepting printed photos of any kind. A scanner is available in room 140, however, if you need to scan your printed photo.
Senior Photo Upload: All photos need to be uploaded directly to the Lifetouch website. Visit community.lifetouch.com, and use BZETVC for your access code. (If there is an error with this code, please contact Mr. Roberson: joseph.roberson@springfield.k12.or.us)
√ Do not submit photos from facebook, myspace, etc. They are not of good quality and do not reproduce well.
And also please support a photographer who supports Thurston Publications.
See the back of this letter for details.

Also, a letter will be coming home soon explaining how to create a Baby Ad in the yearbook, if you would like to do so. Please contact Mr. Roberson with questions.
