Lifetouch School Photos

Lifetouch comes to District 196 schools each fall to take a student's school picture. These photos are used for various reasons, which include:


  • The student's photo in the yearbook
  • The photo for the student's school ID card
  • An up-to-date photo in our district's student information system (Infinite Campus)
  • The ability for families to purchase copies of the picture directly from Lifetouch

Hybrid Learning Pictures: Thursday, October 1, and Friday, October 2

Hybrid learning students will have their photos taken during the school days on Oct. 1 (Cohort A) and Oct. 2 (Cohort B). Students will be scheduled to leave one class for approximately ten minutes. Pictures will be taken in Gym D and students will return to class as soon as their picture is taken.

Digital Academy Pictures: Wednesday, September 30

Students participating in Digital Academy can come to AVHS on Wednesday, Sept. 30, to have their photo taken for inclusion in the yearbook as well as an updated student ID card.


If students in Digital Academy choose to not participate in the picture day on Sept. 30, they will have the option to submit their own photo for the yearbook and last year's school photo will be used for this year's ID card.


To maintain proper spacing and an efficient photo experience, we ask that students please come at the following times based on the first letter of their last name:


A: 8:00 - 8:30

B: 8:30 - 9:00

C - D: 9:00 - 9:30

E - G: 9:30 - 10:00

H: 10:00 - 10:30

I - K: 10:30 - 11:00

N - P: 12:00 - 12:30

Q - S: 12:30 - 1:15

T - Z: 1:15 - 2:00


Students should come in the main entrance and proceed directly to Gym D for their photo. They do not need to bring anything with them except a mask to wear in the building. After their photo is taken, they should promptly exit back out the main entrance.
