Picture Day!

Dragon Families,

Picture Day is scheduled for this Friday, September, 23rd. You do not need to send any order forms or money on picture day. You will receive a proof and a secure access code to view your proofs after pictures are taken. This will be when you choose your background and place your orders online. It is a DRESS UP day. No revealing clothing, no spaghetti straps, no torn pants or shorts, no sweatpants. A uniform is acceptable but we hope you take advantage of this opportunity to have your student dress up! Please note your student will be asked to change if their clothing fails to meet the above guidelines.

If you need further clarification, please visit the online handbook.
