School Photographer Coming to MLC on March 15th
Dorian Studios will be coming to MLC on the afternoon of March 15th to take school pictures. We're glad to finally be able to provide this opportunity to families. Special thanks to Kathleen Frutiger, MLC Secretary, for her efforts in organizing a full-day of pictures within current pandemic restrictions. Dorian Studios is also our yearbook publisher. Photos taken by Dorian Studios are automatically imported into our yearbook.
Social distancing and face coverings will be required. We are required to submit a safety plan to PPS for this type of event and follow all requirements.
