Senior Yearbook Photos

Any Seniors scheduled for their portraits on the following dates- 9/15, 9/17, 9/29, 9/30: please go to the back door entrance of the library for your appointment, not through the building. The library back door is on the football field side of the building, past the cafeteria, up on the hill.
 If you have not yet made an appointment to have your portrait taken, or have tried recently and were unable to book due to no available appointments, we have scheduled 2 more photo session dates with Lors for November 11th and 12, afterschool. These dates are not yet available to book, but we will have them available for anyone still in need of an appointment soon and another message will be sent when they are available. Any additional yearbook questions, issues, etc. can now be sent to hhsyearbook@ewrsd.k12.nj.us 

An email was sent out to parents/guardians of all Seniors on 8/23 from Lors Studios. This email includes all necessary details on setting up your individual appointment date and time, as well as additional information needed for photos. You may want to check your spam folder if you have not seen this email.

If you did not receive this email from Lors or have any further questions, please contact Lors Customer Service at 908-964-0847 or customerservice@lorsstudio.com. They are available Monday-Friday between 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


Please check your Genesis Parent Portal for your student's 21-22 bus information.
