Absentee Portrait Day

All students who were absent on Picture Day or are new to the school must get their pictures taken on Absentee Portrait Day, Monday, October 3. These portraits are used for yearbook and administrative purposes.

Students who had their pictures taken on the original day but did not purchase at that time and now wish to purchase may have their pictures taken again on Absentee Portrait Day as well. The picture taken on October 3 will be the one used for the purchase.

Student pictures that had a photographer error may also have their pictures retaken on Absentee Portrait Day. The student must bring their package with the error and return it to the photographer.
