First of all, thank you for ordering a yearbook! Since school has been closed, life has been such an adjustment for all and even more stressful for others, between balancing work, school, and living with rules and guidelines that seem to change on a daily basis. For the YB staff, we weren’t even sure the yearbook would happen this year based on the recent circumstances that have affected us all and yet have impacted each of us in so many different ways. Fortunately, we had the content from most of the events that happened throughout the year up until that point of no return, enough to fill 68 pages, jam packed full of memories. So, thank you again for helping us make the yearbook a reality.
Secondly, thank you for taking the time to send us your field trip and homeschooling pictures. The pictures I’ve received (Markus) have been so much fun. I’m pretty much the only one who has seen them, so that page is going to be like that secret room on the HGTV shows that no one gets to see until the big reveal. Ha! What strange and interesting times we live in…
I’m sure some of you are wondering how you will get your yearbook this year. Well, we don’t know for sure yet. My optimistic hope is that by the time we receive them in mid-June, the social distancing rules will be relaxed enough that we can arrange a date to gather at school to pick them up and maybe have friends sign them. But if that or any other pick up way doesn’t pan out, rest assured your children will get their yearbooks. There’s a rumor going around that myself and another VRE dad will personally deliver them on bikes… Stranger things have happened, I guess.
Lastly – If you haven’t purchased a yearbook yet and still want to, we have extended online store deadline. As a reminder, we will not be selling yearbooks in the hallways at the end of the year because, well… you know why.
The NEW deadline for ordering yearbooks is this Thursday April 30.
Please follow these instructions to order your child’s/children’s yearbook(s) for 2019/2020. If this doesn’t come through as a hyperlink, you can copy and paste the link to order yearbooks here:
Upon submitting your order, an email receipt should be confirmation of your purchase.
With great sadness, this will be my last year as part of your devoted YB team. However, your future YB leaders, Angela & Liz, will surely knock it out of the park in the years to come. This has been a labor of love for me and I appreciate everyone putting up with my shenanigans. Thanks much and hope to see everybody soon!
