Half Day E-Notice

Half Day School - August 26, 2021

Picture Day

Half Day’s Picture Day is scheduled for Thursday, September 2. Stuart-Rodgers Photography will be taking your student's individual picture. The ordering system has gone electronic. There is no paper order form.


  • All students will be photographed.

  • You will receive an email about two- to three weeks after picture day with a link to your proofs that will be located in an online gallery. Each student’s pictures are password protected so there is an individual gallery for each student.

  • You will log in to the Stuart-Rodgers Photography website and choose your picture package. Parents will view all of the pictures Stuart-Rodgers takes and select the one they like best for their order.

  • Once you have paid for your pictures, the ones you selected will be mailed to your home free of shipping charges. (Free shipping is valid for two weeks from the date you receive proofs via email.)


For students who are absent on picture day or students who wish to have their picture retaken, picture retake day will be Wednesday, October 13. Picture day for Sprague is September 10 and Daniel Wright is September 24.


Remember to have your students wear their best smile to school!

Fifth-Grade Band

If your child is interested in fifth-grade band, please attend the Virtual Band Information Meeting via Zoom on Thursday, Sept 2. The band program begins in the fifth-grade in D103. This is a meeting for parents only. Students will receive information about band during music class.


There are two meeting times divided by homeroom teacher. If possible, please attend during the allotted time for your child’s class so we can stay below the participant limit on Zoom and ensure that we have enough time to answer your questions. We also ask, if possible, only log into the meeting with one device per family.

  • 6:00-6:45 p.m.: Parents of students in Dwyer, Friend, La Roi, Logan, and McCafferty should attend
