Picture Update

Families should keep an eye out for their student's images early next week! Below is a message from Kemmetmueller Photography:

There is no pre-order option for photos this year. This is partly because of COVID and partly because we offer more than one image for students and families to view. Kemmetmueller Photography will send password-protected galleries to every student and guardian to review and pick their images from. These emails will be going out early next week and will contain 3-7 images per student. If for some reason a student or family does not receive an email please call us directly at 952-473-2142 and we will take care of it (you will need student ID # to get access).

Parents will be able to view their images, crop them, and place orders online with any credit, debit, or prepaid card. Also, different this year all orders will be shipped directly to student's houses and there will be no distribution done by district staff. This speeds up overall delivery and also reduces contact items between staff and students.
