The estimated delivery for the 2020-2021 yearbook is this August. Due to COVID and a lack of student events, sports, in-person classes, etc. the school elected to delay our deadlines this year in order to try to cover more of the school year. This means that the book’s publication is also delayed. If the books are delivered in early to mid-August, those students who preordered their yearbooks will be contacted in August to come and pick them up. If they are delivered in late August, we will just wait to pass them out during the first days of school.
Yearbooks are still available to order at Balfour.com
