Yearbook Senior Guidelines

Churchill High School and Yearbook Staff hold personal freedom of expression in high regard.

We respect our students as individuals who have a right to be their true selves as long as that does not infringe on the rights and freedoms of others. While we want all students and families to submit Senior Portraits that they are happy with, we do have certain guidelines we ask everyone to follow.

Submit portraits, quotes, and baby pictures to Mr. Squires at squires_d@4j.lane.edu. Make sure to include the senior’s name is in your email.

Any questions, see Mr. Squires in room C5 or email squires_d@4j.lane.edu.

CHS Senior Portrait Official Guidelines

  • Portraits should have an aspect ratio of 4w x 6h (vertically oriented.)
  • Portraits should have a resolution of 300 dpi (most professional photographers already do this).
  • Clothing should be school-appropriate.
  • U.S. official flag etiquette states that the flag itself should not be worn as clothing; according to Section §176 of the Flag Code, “The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. ”
    • Please do not submit portraits with the student draping the flag around the shoulders, or any part of the body for that matter.

We would very much appreciate torso shots; they are preferred but NOT required…

Also, vertically oriented works better than horizontally oriented – see below:

We prefer the dimensions to be 6h X 4w but that’s not as important as the dpi, which is a requirement of the Yearbook printer – at least 300 dpi please! – pictures with lower dpi don’t print at high enough quality.

CHS Senior Quote Guidelines

  • Quotes should be school-appropriate.
  • Quotes should not include foul language or swear words.
  • Bullying, harassment, and discrimination are not tolerated. Quotes should not single out any individual or group in a negative manner.

Any questions, email squires_d@4j.lane.edu.

CHS Baby Pictures Guidelines

  • Pictures should have an aspect ratio of 4w x 6h (vertically oriented.)
  • Pictures should have a resolution of 300 dpi (most professional photographers already do this).
  • Pictures should be school-appropriate.

We prefer the dimensions to be 6h X 4w but that’s not as important as the dpi, which is a requirement of the Yearbook printer – at least 300 dpi please! – pictures with lower dpi don’t print at high enough quality.
