  • Attention Class of 2022! Senior Portraits are being scheduled for mid-June.  Appointments are available on 6/15, 6/16, 6/18, 6/21, and 6/25 from 9am-3pm at West.  Visit to schedule your appointment by using the appointment code mailed to your home address OR searching by city/state if you do not have your code.  If you are unable to schedule during the 6/15-6/25 window, you can make an appointment at a Prestige studio or wait for makeup appointment availability in August.  We encourage you to get your portrait taken as soon as possible to ensure its inclusion in the 2022 yearbook.
