SMS Picture Days - RETAKES!

The SMS school picture Retake Day is scheduled for Wednesday, October 27. A new picture ID with Lifetouch for the Retake Day will be shared as we get closer to the event.

You can still order pictures from our most recent picture day through MyLifetouch, using the SMS picture ID EVTMKKSR6. However, this picture ID will close once LifeTouch begins to process the order.
