LAST CHANCE - Picture Day Snaps at Home - Time is Running Out to Submit Your Picture

Lifetouch is offering an updated version of Snaps @ Home, a feature on their app that lets parents upload their own picture as a school picture. They add the school photo background in the app, and then can send the digital picture to to be used in the yearbook. Families will have to order a photo package. The packages start at $4.99, and we are asking that our families use the blue background to keep the photos uniform. Please email with questions.

If your student missed having his/her picture made and you would like them in the yearbook, please participate before the deadline.

HERE is information about Picture Days Snaps @ Home
