LifeTouch Photographers will be on campus (both the NGC and WHS for all grades, including seniors) for a Retake & Make-Up Picture Day on Monday, October 30th. Any student may have a retake done, and any unphotographed student should go have their picture taken for yearbook. There is no cost for a retake, but LifeTouch does ask that the student bring their proofs back to them when they come to be rephotographed. (Proofs from the original picture days in September were distributed at the high school to underclassmen two weeks ago through English classes.)

Photographers will be on both campuses from 8:00-4:00. Students may go down and have their picture taken at any time (as teachers permit) or during MegaLunch.

To order your WHS underclass student's RETAKE pictures ahead of time, you may go online to MYLIFETOUCH.COM and enter Picture Day ID: DO317101Q1

To order prints from your WHS students ORIGINAL picture day back in September, go online to MYLIFETOUCH.COM and enter Picture Day ID: DO317101Q0
