● There are a variety of scanning applications available for smartphones such as Genius Scan and CamsSanner
● Your local drug or general merchandise stores with photo departments also have scanning capabilities

Pre-Ordering a Yearbook for your Student:
Help your student preserve their high school memories by pre-ordering a yearbook. It’s recommended that you order a yearbook during registration or in the fall, this makes picking up the book easier at the year’s end and guarantees that you will receive a book. If you would like to order at a later date, you can do so through the Student Activities Office or through jostens.com
