Picture Retake Day - November 19

posted Nov 12, 2021, 11:01 AM by Diana Blevins

November 19 is picture retake day.  If you want a retake of the fall pictures taken in September, please bring the picture packet you received on November 19 for your student to have his/her picture retaken.

All students who were absent or enrolled after our original fall picture day in September will have their picture taken.  This is so they may get their picture id card.

 If your student was not here on picture day in September and you would like to order pictures, please pick up a picture form from the front office.
