Spring Picture Day - Tuesday, March 27

Spring pictures are a little different than they were in the fall.

  • Individual Pictures - Money due late when pictures come in; All students will have individual pictures taken, and Lifetouch will send a packet of the pictures home a couple of week later. You have 3 choices when you receive these pictures:
    • Pay for the entire package and send the money to school, keeping the pictures.
    • Pay for part of the package - send the pictures back that you don't want along with the payment for the ones that you are keeping
    • Send entire package of pictures back if you don't want to purchase any of them.
  • Class Picture - MUST be paid for on the day of the pictures (Tuesday, March 27); If you want a class picture for your child, the money is due on picture day (March 27).
