2015 Senior Picture Requirements

Now that your son or daughter is to be a senior starting the Fall of 2014, it is time to have senior pictures taken.  It would be wise to be photographed this summer or early fall to meet the deadline of Friday, January 2, 2015.  Senior pictures can be either wallet-size photos or digital.  Digital proofs can be e-mailed to Ms. Bussman,

The yearbook needs two photos:  one is for the yearbook and one is for the Mandan News when they do the graduation pages.  Please note that if a senior picture is not received, we will put in a picture that we do have which could be their freshmen picture. 

Guidelines for Senior Yearbook Pictures

Pose:  Head-and-shoulder shot (frontal bust or chest and above)—face centered on photo, no hats/hoods, no sunglasses, no other people, no pets, no vehicles, no weapons, no tobacco products, etc. Make sure the pictures are vertical (portrait orientation). 

Other:  Please no hands covering any part of face, no fade or reflection effects.  No photos that include drawings, caricatures, or inappropriate poses.  No extreme close ups, all “nature” shots must meet regular photo requirements. 

Deadline:  End of the day on Friday, January 2, 2015.  No late submissions will be accepted.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Ms. Bussman, 701-751-6501.

NOTE:  The yearbook advisor and administration reserve final judgment as to whether or not photos meet the specifications.
