  • Crop size: minimum 2.25" wide x 3" height  

The following is Not Acceptable:

  • Black and White Photos
  • Attire not consistent with school dress code

No senior photos will be accepted after the deadline! Deadlines for senior photos coincide with publication deadlines and cannot be changed!

School pictures will be takes in the fall, but you are not required to use the photo supplied by St Francis for your yearbook. However, photo must be taken for your student ID and back-up photo for yearbook.
