    2019-2020 Yearbooks

    Dear Santa Margarita Families,

    I wanted to give you an update on how we will be handling Yearbook distribution.  Due to Covid-19, Lifetouch is facing delays in printing and shipping and is unable to make any time commitments at this time.  Because of this, I still do not have a definite shipping date from them.  I can only say that they will hopefully be here sometime this summer.  

    If you are moving, please send Martina Boeck and myself an email with:

    • Student’s: Name, Grade, and Teacher

    • Forwarding Address 

    • Working Phone Number 

    The Principal and I will inform families the moment we have a confirmed delivery date and have a schedule for distribution. The school will be mailing out Yearbooks to families that have relocated, so please make sure that you send us forwarding and contact information so we can get them to you safely.  

    Thank you again for supporting Santa Margarita Elementary and the Middle School Yearbook Staff. Hope you have a safe and happy summer!
