Attention all parents
October 28th is School Picture make up day.
If your child was absent on your picture day in September or is new to our school since September 15th, they can have their picture taken. Teachers will be giving out the order forms, if you’d like to buy a picture packet. More forms will be available in the front office. Absentees and new students must bring the completed form along with payment to the photographers on Oct. 28th.
Parents who are unsatisfied with their child’s original picture must have their child bring the packet to school on October 28th in order to have retakes done.
