Last Call for 2023 Senior Portraits

“Last Chance” senior portraits will be taken on Wednesday, October 19th and Thursday, October 20th. If you didn’t make an appointment over the summer, this will be the very last opportunity to have a portrait taken in time to be included in the yearbook. All students in need will receive appointment cards in the coming weeks. We want all our seniors to be in the yearbook, so please note that THERE IS NO CHARGE for this single-pose sitting. For multiple-pose sittings, please contact Robert Taylor Photography at (203) 377-0739 to schedule an appointment at the studio.

There is no need to make an appointment; just use the security buzzer at the front entrance, and the main office staff will be able to assist you. Note that you may be asked to provide identification.

Additionally, now that dedication nominations have closed and been reviewed, this questionnaire also offers you the chance to vote for the recipient of this year’s honoree from among the four finalists. The questionnaire is due on December 17th, which is the same day that baby photo submissions are due as well.
