Destiny Martin, Jordan Rauh and Devin Blood look through their yearbooks to find themselves.

Many students got up early on September 3rd to get ready for a picture day that didn’t happen. Picture day was cancelled because the health department closed the school due to Covid-19 concerns.

Picture day has been rescheduled to September 30th. 

“Horton Studios photographers and I were here at 7:30, ready to take students’ pictures and then I got a phone call that we would be distance learning,” Ms. Barney, yearbook adviser, said.

Students and teachers were disappointed because they woke up early to get ready and take pictures. Around 7:30 a.m. is when teachers and students received the call that school would be going virtual and that picture day was no longer happening and would have to be rescheduled to another day.

“I woke up at 6:30. I curled my hair and did my makeup. I picked out my outfit the night before. I was honestly kind of mad because I got up early and was ready for it then we had to go virtual,” Sienna Bates, sophomore, said.

A lot of teachers got up early and put in a lot of effort to look good for picture day and then were very disappointed when they got the news.

“I’m glad it was rescheduled. Now I can get cute all over again,” Mrs. Thompson, high school math teacher, said.
