We are happy to announce that Rolland Studios is our new school photographer. Rolland Studios is offering photo packages ranging from $10-$45, online ordering, and photo delivery within two weeks.

Mark your calendar! August 21, School ID Photo Day

Unlike past years, school photos are NOT being taken August 5-6 during Fee Payment days.

Instead School ID and yearbook photos are scheduled for August 21. The school photographer is scheduled to take all students' ID photos during the school day in the auditorium. Students are released from class to have their photo taken in the auditorium.

Pre-ordering Photos & Delivery

Pre-order your photos online anytime between July 1 and August 21.


  1. Click on "Kindergarten- 11"
  2. Click on "Pre-Purchase photos"
  3. Use password: LFS14

If you order your photos by August 21, photo packages are to be delivered within two weeks. Packages are delivered to students during school.

Why aren't families receiving photo proofs before ordering?

Proofs are not provided due to the large numbers of photos taken at the high school level (~1,600). The money saved printing proofs means Rolland Studios can offer photo packages for ~20% less than most school photo companies.

Photo packages range from $10-$45.

Can photos be ordered after August 21?

YES. Everyone who doesn't order photos will get a second chance form. All Second chance orders are place through the mail or internet. The school will NOT collect forms. Instead, second chance orders should be sent DIRECTLY to Rolland Studios via mail or submitted online at www.rollandkc.com.

Photo Make-Up Day, Sept 24

What happens if my student misses having her photos taken on August 21?

Students who miss having their photo taken on August 21 have a second chance on September 24. Students in this situation will be called down automatically on September 24 to have their photo taken. There is no need for these students to sign up for retakes.

Students who are not satisfied with their photo from August 21 can retake their photo on September 24. These students should email Laurie Folsom at lfolsom@usd497.org to arrange to be released from class for a retake.

Student Activity Tickets & Student ID Cards

Make sure your student receives their Student Activity Ticket by the first football game.

Students involved in athletics pay for a Student Activity Ticket as a part of their athletic fees. Parents can also purchase an SAT along with school fee payments so their student can gain admission to school athletic events at a discount and not have to wait in line. By purchasing a SAT early in the season a student can save money versus paying student admission at every athletic event they attend.

Each SAT has the students' School ID Photo on it, so It is important that ALL students (even seniors) participate in the August 21 School ID Photo Day in order to receive their SAT by the first home football game on Friday, Sept 12.

Make sure your student has a photo taken August 21.

If your student does not have their photo taken on August 21, they will need show proof of their SAT purchase in order to be admitted to athletic events without paying an additional admission fee.
