Senior Information

Senior Portraits
All seniors will be photographed for the yearbook. Photos will be available for online purchase throughout the 2017-2018 school year.

An online viewing card will be sent home with each senior with instructions on how to order senior prints online. The online viewing card will have a personal pin to allow personal access and all the information necessary to place your order.

It is suggested that seniors wear solid colors, primary or pastels, and avoid large geometric prints, large logos, bright colors or neons.

Scholarship Night
Scholarship Night will be held on May 17, 2018 and is a very important night for CRLS students. Scholarship recipients will be notified via Community Meeting and US mail. Students must arrive at 5PM.
