SCHOOL PICTURE ISSUES As you may have heard, we had quite a few issues with school pictures this year. Most of the people who wore glasses had a glare and some pictures had pink and green spots on them. Initially, Lifetouch thought they would be able to touch these up without retakes. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case. Any student or faculty member with these issues will need to have their picture retaken next Wednesday, November 6th beginning @ 8:15am. If you child will need retakes please send your original picture package back to school with them to hand to the photographer (you will not need to reorder your pictures). If your child missed the original picture day, you can order prints at mylifetouch.com and use code EVTTGV962. If you would prefer the paper order form, please request one from your child’s teacher. We apologize for the inconvenience as we all know how stressful picture day can be for parents!
