John Adams HS has contracted with a new company to provide school photographs called LifeTouch. They have online ordering capabilities as well. You will need to create an account to do so on their website at

Students will have school and ID pictures taken during their English Class. Seniors will be part of this group as we will use this picture for their school ID. Picture packets will be given out on the first day of school.

Only Juniors and Seniors can apply for the lottery and purchase a parking pass. Parking passes cost $40.00. Each student will have an assigned numbered spot for the entire school year. Each driver must have a valid driver's license. You will need to provide proof of this when you purchase your parking pass. This lottery closes on Monday, August 8, 2022 at 8:00 pm EST. We will notify the winners through email. The winners can then purchase the parking pass during Back to School Day on Tuesday, August 9th from 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm.
