Why are old pictures used in the yearbook?

COMMENT: Hello I am wondering why the yearbook has old pictures in it?  Last years prom, no freshman sports and last years sports teams?  I spent 55$ on it and it’s disappointing. Is this how it’s done every year?

RESPONSE: In order to layout and publish a yearbook, deadlines with the publisher are early and strict. The deadlines for layout of the yearbook are usually around the end of January. So, anything that happens after that date – such as the prom, spring sports, etc. – will not be in THAT year’s yearbook. Those items are rolled over to the next year’s yearbook. That is why the 2018 prom was featured in the 2019 yearbook. The 2019 prom will be featured in the 2020 yearbook.
