UPDATE: August 4 Session Canceled
Posted on 07/29/2020
Class of 2021 Senior Portraits

Due to the inclement weather we are expecting all day tomorrow, the senior portraits scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, August 4, 2020, will be scheduled for a later date. Anyone who pre-paid their picture package will have that money refunded to them by Victor O’Neill Studios. Each senior scheduled to take a picture tomorrow will be emailed individually by Victor O’Neill Studios tonight as well.

We apologize for the inconvenience this cancellation may cause.

 

Dear Parents of Rising Seniors,

Victor O’Neill will be having their second session of senior portraits at Osbourn Park HS on August 3 and 4 in the OPHS auditorium. Please note that this is the second of four different opportunities that seniors will have to take their senior portraits. Tentatively these additional dates are in September and October. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, parents will need to schedule their child’s appointment using the link provided by Victor O’Neill below. All employees will be wearing masks, using hand sanitizer between sittings and masks will be available for students as well.

Sincerely,
Artise Gill, Assistant Principal
Osbourn Park High School


Please read the letter provided by Victor O’Neill below for directions on the process for taking pictures this year. Parents of seniors should follow these instructions by clicking the link provided by Victor O’Neill below:

Dear Parents and Class of 2021:

We at Victor O’Neill Studios, your school’s official school photographer, are excited to see you on the following date(s) for your senior portraits:

Monday and Tuesday, August 3 and 4

Due to safety concerns during the COVID-19 crisis, we will no longer be mailing appointment notices home. It is safer to communicate with everyone through email and allows us to control the number of appointments throughout the day. We are reducing the number of appointments by 50 percent compared to previous years. Therefore, instead of pre-assigning a date and time for your senior portrait, we are offering you the opportunity to select your date and time through our new scheduling software. If you have not had your portrait taken yet, please sign up for your session date and time here.

 

This will be our second senior portrait session at the school. If you had your portrait taken the first time we were there and would like a retake, please send an email to seniors@vosphoto.com.

For the yearbook pose, seniors can choose to wear their own dress clothes:

  • Solid color dress shirt/top
  • Jackets and ties optional

Please note that if the senior prefers to wear the tuxedo or drape, they will be shared with other seniors while we are there. In these cases, a signed waiver must be brought in with the senior. It will be accessible when you click on the link above. We will still take casual and cap and gown photos. We will have the following modifications in place to ensure a safe environment for students, parents and our staff:

  • We will have signage in place to encourage social distancing while students wait their turn at each camera.
  • Groups of no more than 10 students will be allowed in the auditorium at a time, maintaining social distancing guidelines.
  • Once a student has finished all their portraits, they must leave the auditorium. No waiting for others.
  • Photographers will not come within physical contact of any student and will stay behind the camera.
  • Photographers and assistants will be in gloves and masks while students are present.
  • The use of hand sanitizer by each photographer and students before and after each session would be required.
  • All of our staff will have their temperature checked before reporting to work each day.
  • Anyone entering the room where portraits are taking place will have their temperature checked.
  • Any shared clothing will be sanitized before each use using UV wands.
  • Props will be sanitized between uses.
  • To limit inter-personal contact, no “walk-in” appointments will be permitted for now.

We appreciate your cooperation with the following recommendations:

  • We recommend that anyone with underlying health conditions not accompany the high school senior to the school for their portraits if at all possible.
  • Masks will be provided to any customers desiring one.
  • Give each other space and follow the social distancing guidelines.
  • Wash and sanitize your hands often. We will have sanitation stations throughout our portrait areas for your convenience.
  • Most importantly, if you feel sick, have a fever, are coughing, have difficulty breathing, or if in the last two weeks you been in close contact with a person with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, please stay home.
  • We strongly encourage you to reschedule your appointment if you or anyone in your household is feeling unwell.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to seniors@vosphoto.com.

Thank you!
