Aurora High School recently announced that Ripcho Studios will be the "official" photographer for the yearbook. Parents of upcoming Seniors are under no obligation to purchase a Senior picture package from Ripcho Studios; however, the only way for the student to appear in the yearbook is to have their picture taken through Ripcho Studios.
Ripcho Studios will offer a "yearbook only" option. If a student wants a yearbook only picture, it will be free. Ripcho Studio will photograph approximately three head and shoulder images of the student for the yearbook. Ripcho Studio will select the best image for the yearbook and send the selected image to the school with the other images.
For a YEARBOOK ONLY picture sitting the parents should call Ripcho Studios and ask for "THE FREE YEARBOOK ONLY SITTING" to reserve their time. A family will NOT be charged for this option.
If a parent requests a yearbook only and wants to select the image themselves, it is a $25.00 sitting fee. Ripcho Studio will photograph approximately 8 images and put said images on line for the parent to inspect. If the parent wishes to purchase a portrait package at that time, their $25.00 sitting fee turns into a deposit and goes towards whatever they purchase.
Ripcho will bring their studio to AHS between the dates of July 8th-10th. A makeup day it is scheduled for Monday, August 12th for those students unable to attend the first sessions.
