    Frequently Asked Questions

    What if I Missed All Yearbook Purchasing Opportunities?

    Yearbooks are available for sale throughout the school year. This information is advertised through the HMS PTO, the school's website, the HMS News broadcast, and the classroom teachers. If there are extra yearbooks available after the yearbooks are distributed, those will be sold on a first-come first-served basis.

    How Do I Know if I Purchased a Yearbook?

    Search your email for the receipt that was emailed to you. Try searching for "e~Funds". This search may or may not bring up your receipt.
    *It is the responsibility of the purchaser to confirm their purchase. If there are discrepancies, the purchaser will need to send a copy of their online receipt to hmsyearbook@homewood.k12.al.us before distribution day.

    What if I Purchased More than One Yearbook?

    Parents are strongly encouraged to keep the online receipt to prove purchase(s); keeping the receipt can ensure that you do not make multiple purchases. A student will receive the number of yearbooks ordered. There will be no refunds on multiple purchases. Please communicate with your family to ensure the correct number of yearbooks are purchased.
