Yearbook Mistake.....I am livid! Update! 6/14/12...Picture in replies, too!
My son just graduated. His senior picture is not in the yearbook! They used his student body card pic! Senior pictures and quotes must be turned in by December, or the yearbook staff will use the student body card picture. To meet the deadline, we had his senior pictures done in September. I sent the jpeg picture to the yearbook advisor via email, as requested, in October. I asked the advisor, in the email, to respond back to tell me if the chosen picture met the proper requirements. He responded...everything was good. I called in December to verify.
I paid for professional pictures, I paid $75 for the stupid yearbook.....I emailed the advisor, including the previous email with the jpeg, to ask what the heck happened and what could be done about it. He called and left a message apologizing. He admits it was an oversight on his part and said he would have a sticker of the picture made at Kinko's so we can stick it over his picture in his yearbook. WTH? I am so pissed! The senior pages are full of beautiful professional portraits...then there is this awful snapshot of him.
What do I do???
I spoke to the advisor. I requested the page be reprinted and distributed with the supplements next Fall. That is not feasible. Sooo..the advisor is having a dozen stickers made for my son to pass out to his closest friends...AND his senior picture, along with a picture of him in his cap and gown holding his certificate of acceptance into College will be printed as a supplement, along with a special mention by the advisor. It is the best that can be done.
This is the first year that yearbooks have been passed out in the Spring. (naturally, lucky me) Supplemental pages including pics of Senior Prom, Senior Breakfast, and Senior most likely too...will be distributed next fall. Before, the yearbooks were handed out in the fall of the next year.
Thank you all!
