Senior Portrait Update Class of 2018

The information related to the Lifetouch Senior Portraits has been updated.  Senior portraits will be taken on the following dates:

September 12, 13, 14, and 15, 2017

Photographers will be available from 3pm to 8pm in the Cafeteria LGI.  If your senior has not had their portrait taken yet, they will be scheduled for an appointment on one of the above dates.  An appointment postcard will be mailed to your home.  This is also a chance to have portraits re-taken.  If this is an initial sitting, a $5.00 fee will be charged.  This portrait allows students to be pictured in the yearbook with their class and also is used for a student photo ID.  Students are not obligated to purchase photos, but may do so after viewing proofs on line.
