  • January 4 is the last day to buy a yearbook! Don't wait. You can purchase through Skyward Family Access for $59.00. Scroll to the resources section below for a tutorial on paying online.


    Below are instructions for how to take your portrait and submit it for inclusion in the Lakewood High School yearbook using a program called Community Upload or Yearbook Snap.

    Step 1. Take your photo. To keep everyone’s portraits consistent, there are some important guidelines to follow that are listed below. You can also see examples of an ideal photo and what not to do below these instructions

    • Front facing or standing pose only – sit straight up
    • Make sure the photo is from the chest up, no hands visible in the picture
    • No deliberately weird facial expressions
    • Stand in front of a blank, one-color wall
    • Regular clothes – no costumes
    • No writing on shirt
    • No off-the-shoulder, spaghetti strap, tank, tube, low-cut, one-strap, halter or see-through tops
    • No hats, visors, caps, sunglasses or props
    • No additional people or pets in the photo besides the student

    Step 2. Submit your photo through the Community Upload website or the Yearbook Snap app.
