Everything is Different in the 2020-2021 School Year

With the vast majority of student activities being drastically different this school year, the Ithaca High School Annual staff is determined to do everything we can to produce a keepsake for our students, and we need everyone’s help. Please note the information below and reach out with any questions.

School Pictures

If your student had their photo taken by Prestige or Lifetouch at school this year the image is automatically sent to the Yearbook. If you did not get a school picture taken and have not yet submitted a photo please see below to learn how to upload a portrait so we can have as many students as possible pictured in our Portraits section. 

SENIORS: Keep an eye on your e-mail for a copy of the page you appear on. We ask you to check the spelling of your name and the image that we have and to reply to the e-mail you receive confirming that you have seen the page and everything is correct. If there are issues it is critical that you reply and explain what changes are needed. 

Portrait submissions for those who don't have their school picture taken by Lifetouch:

Typically Portrait submissions were only available to seniors, but due to the pandemic, we will allow underclass students to submit their portraits through HJ eShare. All portraits must be submitted by December 31st.

Check out the eShare flyer, which explains how to submit your portrait. Please pay close attention to the rules for portrait submissions so that your image is accepted.
  • Submit your portrait on the HJ eShare website or mobile app (download from the App Store and enter the code ITHACA to upload your photos). You can also access eShare by going to, entering code 8812, and pressing the "use eShare" link at the top of the page.
