Class of 2023 Senior Pictures

Three months left to take your senior photo! T You must have your portrait taken by CADY to be included in the senior section of the yearbook. There are several photo options you can choose, but to be in the yearbook you just need the yearbook pose. This option comes with Cap and Gown pictures, and one extra ‘scene.’ You should have started receiving emails about scheduling an appointment. You can go to one of their studios OR schedule an appointment here at the high school during a Road Shoot. The closest studio, The Atlanta Studio, located at 2030 Powers Ferry Rd., Suite 520 Atlanta, Georgia 30339 (near the Braves Stadium) is accepting appointments now. It is advised that you schedule an appointment sooner rather than later so that you can get retakes if you wish. CADY will be at DHS on Saturday 8/27 and Saturday 10/8. If you do not get an appointment on one of these days you will have to go to a studio to get your picture taken.

You have until October 31, either at school or at a studio, to get your photo taken for inclusion in the 2022-2023 yearbook. Please go to cady.com/schedule in order to schedule your appointment as soon as possible.

Anyone who needs financial assistance for the sitting fee should reach out to Principal Lofstrand, rlofstrand@csdecatur.net. If you have any other questions please email the yearbook sponsor Ms. Lockhart at alockhart@csdecatur.net.

Mandatory Annual Data Update

It is essential for parents or guardians to complete the Annual Data Update before the start of school. The ADU is how you

  • make sure we have your current contact information

  • provide your student's health information

  • complete mandatory district signoffs

Please review the K-12 District Handbook and the Code of Conduct and Restorative Practices Handbook before completing the update. Help drive OUR SCHOOL to be the first to reach 100%! Families new to CSD who enrolled on or after July 14 do NOT need to complete the ADU; new families who registered before July 14 do need to complete it because the ADU has updated handbooks and sign-offs.
