Resources for Picture Day 2020

Dear Parents,

We would like to share some important information with you regarding this year’s picture day. As we are facing some challenges this year, we are forced to make some adjustments to the way we handle some of our most routine things, but we will get them done!


School pictures will be taken by our usual professional photography studio, Kids at Heart Photography. We cannot take photos during the school day, therefore, we are scheduling them to be taken after school on an appointment basis. The photos will be taken​ ​in the front lobby of the ​school by the main office. Reminder that these photos are used in the yearbook.

When will they be scheduled?

October 6th - 3:00pm-6:00pm - ALL 6th grade students

October 7th - 3:00pm-6:00pm - ALL 7th grade students

October 8th - 3:00pm-6:00pm - ALL 8th grade students​

How Do I Reserve My Appointment?
