    FERPA Information:

    When students register every school year, parents are asked to fill out a Student Information Opt-Out Form. This is for personal information to be shared or not shared online, newspapers, yearbooks, etc. If you select Option A, it states:

    “I do NOT want directory information about my child disclosed. Grand Forks Public Schools has designated the following information as directory information: student’s name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, grade level, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, awards received, musical instruments played. If you select this option, your child’s information will not appear in yearbooks, graduation programs, news releases, etc.”

    This means I cannot use your child’s school picture in the yearbook because it will be associated with their name. I mail out letters asking for permission when school starts and are due in November. If parents don’t sign the permission slip, you will not be seeing your child’s school picture in the yearbook. Just want to let you be aware. I do have students ask when the books get handed out in May.

    Individual pictures are done in September with makeups in October. Group pictures for music groups or activities are in January. Sports groups are done every season block. All pictures are taken by Caulfields Photography.
