High School Apologizes for Omitting Yearbook Photo

It happens every year at a number of high schools and obviously puts administrations in a tough position. A kid wanting to show his or her individuality gets a yearbook photo taken. The school says it broke rules and won’t publish it. Protests follow, blah blah blah. This example comes to us from a Catholic high school in San Francisco. They issued an apology  because they refused to include Jessica Urbina’s photo. She posed in a tuxedo intended for boys, instead of the black “drape” given to girls for their portrait. The school offered to reprint the yearbook and include the photo, so A+ to them. But Jessica and her parents declined because they didn’t want to make other students have to wait for their copies of the yearbook. So I would say A+ to them, too. The school says it will relax its policy on senior portraits in the future. DB
