Important Senior Information

Senior Picture Deadline

Seniors, the last day to submit your Senior Picture for the yearbook is October 31st.

  • What is a senior photo?
    • Seniors can replace their school portrait with a portrait photo of their choice. Come to room 132 to see examples.
  • General recommendations: a head and shoulders photo of you with a simple background, no props, and high digital quality. Specific requirements can be found at the jump code.
  • How do I submit a senior photo?
    • Use jump code GYPL at lps.org and upload your photograph in its highest resolution/size. Photos must be submitted through this webpage by Oct 31, 2022! Any photos received after this date are not guaranteed to be included in the yearbook.
  • How much is it?
    • Free! Though some families elect to get professional photos taken at their own cost.

Senior Ads

  • What is a Senior Ad? Traditionally it is a section in the yearbook that includes a senior’s baby photo, a current photo and a personal message from the person(s) who purchased the ad. It can also be a way to celebrate a team or group of friends.
    The person who purchases the ad gets to select the photos and the message. (All messages do need to meet our publishing guidelines.) If you have questions about the message, please contact Ms. Oquist (moquist@lps.org).
    Click Here for Examples!
  • How do I create a senior ad? Use jumpcode RYY2 and select “Purchase a Senior Ad.” There will be three options – “Have the School Design My Ad,” “Design My Own Ad Online,” and “Upload My Finished Ad.”
    • “Have the School Design My Ad” – Submit your photos, captions, and a message, and the yearbook staff will put it together for you.
    • “Design My Own Ad Online” – You get to choose the layout, fonts, & colors. You’ll upload your photos and be guided through the process.
    • “Upload My Finished Ad” – If you or someone in your family is skilled with design, you can submit a .jpeg of a finished ad.
      You’ll then be guided to the payment page, where you can confirm and purchase your ad. Any ads must be purchased by January 15, 2023.
  • How much is it? Prices for ad space start at $40. Please purchase and submit by January 15th, 2023 using jumpcode RYY2 at lps.org.

Student Attendance Reminders

Here are some helpful reminders for reporting student attendance:

  • Report a whole day’s absence through ParentVue! You can submit a whole day’s absence the day of the absence or in advance. Please do not submit early dismissal or partial day absences through ParentVue as we only check this periodically throughout the day.
  • Call us the night before and leave a message! You can call our Attendance Office anytime, day or night, and leave a message about your student’s absence. This is especially helpful for early dismissals. The sooner we know about an early dismissal the better.
  • Should you need your student out at the last minute, we are always happy to help. Please know that there are times that a class is outside, at lunch or working somewhere else in the building and it can take time to track down your student. We ask for your patience in last minute situations.
  • Trust us, leave a message! We know it can be difficult to leave a message about your student’s absence or concerns about an absence. If you leave a detailed message, our staff will get your student’s attendance entered. We ask that you trust this process as we don’t have time to call back each parent and confirm that we received your message. If you request a call back for further information, it is possible that you might not get a call back until the next day. As always, feel free to contact the Main Office if you have any immediate concerns if the Attendance Office line is busy.

To reach the Attendance Office, please call (402) 436-1303 Option #1
