Yes, Grad Photos Are Happening!!
Posted on 02/18/2021

 Dear WCSS Grads,

We would like to take this opportunity to let you all know what a tremendous job you have been doing dealing with all that has been thrown at you this year.  You are now in the final stretch of your graduating year and, despite all of the challenges, you are well on your way to graduating high school and moving on to the next phase of your life. We are all so very proud of you.

Yes, Grad Photos are taking place.  Edge Imaging is our photographer and we now have dates and the procedures/process worked out.

I am sure you realize that due to our Covid situation we must take extra precautions to ensure safety for all.  Please read carefully the following information and procedures as they must be adhered to exactly.

The Edge Imaging,  “Book My Grad” site will begin accepting reservations as of Thursday, Feb 18 in the evening.

Session Bookings

All students must make a session booking using the Edge Imaging booking system.  This applies to students that are purchasing a grad photo package from Edge Imaging as well as those students who are only sitting for the school composite photo. For those that do not know, we would like every student to have their composite photo taken as we need it for our Graduation Ceremony Slideshow as well as our Class of 2020-2021 Composite picture of all graduates(with cap and gown) that we hang in our school.  It would be great if we are able to get everyone to have a composite photo taken and a reminder there is no charge to have it taken(no sitting fee).
