Update on Amador Yearbooks

August 11, 2020.

Hello Amador Families, 

 

As you know, yearbooks for the 2019-2020 school year have not been received. We are continuing to work with Lifetouch to determine the status of our school yearbook. Below is a letter from Lifetouch. 

 

Dear Families of Amador Elementary,


I know how important yearbooks are - especially in times like these. Lifetouch, like many organizations, has been affected by COVID-19, which has significantly impacted our ability to produce yearbooks. I’ve been with the company more than 20 years and can honestly say this year has been our most challenging to date.


I want to sincerely apologize and fully acknowledge that this is not what our customers expect, nor deserve, from Lifetouch.


We want you to be aware that our primary yearbook production facilities are located in some of the states that are being hardest hit by the pandemic. We have prioritized the safety of our employees and taken all necessary precautions. Social distancing requirements mean that there are fewer people available to work at any given time. In addition, this year we moved to new production facilities and have encountered several issues as we migrated systems. Each of these changes has impacted our production schedule in meaningful ways.

 

I realize this has created a lot of frustration since we are currently unable to provide an estimated delivery time frame for your school’s yearbook. Please know that teams are doing everything possible to get the finished product in your hands. Shipping is monitored on a daily basis and as soon as your yearbook ships, your school will receive tracking information so they can arrange to distribute the books to the students and families in the manner that is best suited for everyone’s safety.


As we navigate COVID-19, Lifetouch will continue to find ways to print yearbooks to provide you a product you love and one our employees feel safe creating. Our intent is to provide you with the very best service and products and I thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this time.


Sincerely,

Johnny Grant

Update on Amador Yearbooks

 as of May 18, 2020

 

We have been notified that we are experiencing delays with our yearbook production

due to the COVID-19 shutdowns. 

 

Students & Families, we know that you are eager for information related to yearbook distribution. We want to reassure you that students who have purchased a yearbook will absolutely receive their book. We are dealing with delayed production and shipping due to the temporary printing plant closures. While we do not have exact dates or details yet for yearbook distribution, we will let you know as soon as information becomes available.

(We will send a family email as well as update this webpage).

 

Books are in production and we will be notified when they are finished and ready for shipment to us. At this point, we do not expect to receive the books until summer break. This means that we will most likely be handing out the yearbooks at the beginning of the new school year. 

If you are moving, please make sure that our secretary, Mrs. Priya, has your updated address information so that we may mail your yearbook to you at your new home. Her email is chandrasekharpriyamvadha@dublinusd.org

 

If you are a 5th grader, moving onto Middle School, we will make plans to get your yearbook to you. Please watch your email and or check back to this website page for updates as they become available. 

 

We have just a few yearbooks available for purchase, if you are interested, please contact Mrs. Priya to have your name added to the wait list. Quantities are extremely limited.

If you want to purchase a yearbook, the cost is $30, which is payable to "Amador Elementary School" by check or cash at the time of pick up. (The office does not carry exact change).

The extra yearbooks are generic and have no personalization features. 

 

Thank you for understanding and patience.
