The bad news is that the yearbook won’t be here until after school is out.
The yearbook staff completed the book more than a month past its deadline as a result of staff members’ procrastination, and technical difficulties with the vendor’s software.
“We had a schedule to keep, and everyone knew their assignments,”said yearbook adviser John Rodriguez, “but it’s like any class. Some times students just don’t do their work.”
To keep the cost down, the yearbook publishing went to a new company that provided many extras. It turned out to be a new learning process for the whole staff, as well as the new yearbook company.
Yearbooks will arrive shortly after the school year, estimated to arrive sometime before the end of June, according to the publisher.
Those who already purchased the yearbook, and who recently provided an eMail address, will notified by email about the release date.
To be invited to the distribution event, or if you want to get on a waiting list to buy one, send an eMail to email@example.com.
In the past years, when about 150 students rush to buy the yearbook during the last few weeks of school. Since the distribution happens when school is out of session, the book order amount was reduced.
“We only ordered 50 yearbooks extra beyond the pre-order amount,” Rodriguez said, “which guarantees a sell out this year.”
