Students who were not photographed during our registration days will have the opportunity to get their picture taken on our Picture Retake Day, Friday, September 22.

If you do not want to order pictures your child's picture will still be taken this day to include in the yearbook and in the class composite photograph. 

Families who want their school pictures to be retaken can also participate in this picture day.  Click here for instructions on retaking school pictures.
