FAQ

What is the cost?

$62 if purchased by December 25, 2020  After that, the cost is $70 until March 27, 2021, and then yearbooks can be preordered for $75 through April 30, 2021.

To preorder your student's 2021 yearbook, visit yearbookforever.com and search "Lee's Summit North." From there, follow the steps to purchase a yearbook. Credit cards, debit cards, and PayPal are accepted.

If you would like to pay with cash or check, please drop off in the front office or mail to LSN.

When is the deadline for ordering?

April 30, 2021. No extra books will be ordered. If Walsworth ships us any overruns, they will retail for $75 in August 2021. We can NEVER count on this.

How can I find out if I already preordered a yearbook?

If you think you ordered online, you can look up the email you would've ordered with on yearbookforever.com. If you ordered at registration through PowerSchool or in-person with cash or check, you can email Mrs. Jessica Brown (jessica.brown@lsr7.net) and she will be happy to check her system.

When will the 2021 yearbooks be delivered?

2021 yearbooks will be delivered in August of 2021. Some schools are spring delivery and some are fall delivery. LSN has actually been fall delivery since 2001. There are pros and cons to each, and we've actually found that the students today don't value signing yearbooks as much as previous generations did, which we think is because of the presence of social media.

Our Student Council voted during the 2018-19 school year to keep fall delivery so that all of the spring events could be included, making it a complete YEARbook. Spring delivery schools actually sacrifice having spring sports and events like prom and graduation covered in the yearbook itself (there's an option to do an insert, but then you run into the issue of those having to be picked up at a later date anyways) because the final deadline for them is before spring break.

When is School Picture Day?
Pearce Photography will be taking school portraits in the multipurpose gym on Wednesday, October 14, 21, and 28 by appointment.

We encourage seniors to dress up—suit and tie, dress shirt and tie, or collared shirt for gentlemen. Solid color dressier tops or sweaters for ladies. All students must follow LSN's dress code policy. The following accessories and items are not allowed in portraits and students who are wearing or have such will be asked to remove them before their photo is taken: no headgear, no headphones, no sunglasses, no backpacks, and no purse straps. Students will be asked to wear a jacket if they are wearing off-the-shoulder tops, spaghetti straps, or shirts with inappropriate images or lingo. Students who are not in compliance with these rules will not have their photo featured in the yearbook.

Pearce Photography will be back at LSN one final time to take school portraits in the lecture hall on Monday, November 9 for the A Group (A-K) and Friday, November 13 for the B Group (L-Z). English teachers will receive a list of students in each of their classes who have NOT yet gotten their picture taken, and students on that list will be sent to get their picture taken during their English class.

If your student wants to retake his or her picture from any of the previous dates, Monday, November 9 for the A Group (A-K) and Friday, November 13 for the B Group (L-Z) are the final opportunities to do so in the building. Students who want retakes will also do so during their English class. For a $20 sitting fee, Pearce will also allow you to schedule an appointment at their studio in Belton up until Monday, November 30, and after that, we will no longer be accepting any portraits for the yearbook.

All school pictures will be uploaded on pearcephoto.com. A week after taking your portrait, enter any email address and the student lunch number as the password to see your student's photo and place an order for prints. For questions about viewing or ordering photos, please email info@pearcephoto.com.
