Senior Portraits

The deadline is quickly approaching for students to take senior portraits. Seniors who are not photographed, with their selected pose submitted, by November 1, 2022, will be excluded from the portrait section of the 2023 Packer Yearbook. Our goal is to feature every student in our yearbook! Portrait makeups have passed, so you will need to schedule an appointment with Lifetouch or an outside provider. The nearest Lifetouch location is in Virginia Beach. Contact information: 1-800-343-5735 or

If you choose to have your photo taken by Lifetouch, they will automatically submit your picture to us. However, if you plan to use an outside photographer, please have them email your selected portrait to Hattie Garrow at The portrait must be formal with a BLUE background. You must be photographed in a drape or tuxedo.
