Senior portraits for the Class of 2021 are in the process of being scheduled.  As soon as dates are set and a location is confirmed, each senior will receive information on their pre-scheduled portrait appointment mailed to their home address.  Please be on the lookout for that mailing in the next month or so.  Seniors will need to login to the Prestige Portraits website to confirm their appointment prior to attending their sitting.  Due to strict COVID-19 related requirements, no walk-ins will be accommodated.  Specific information on location and instructions on confirming appointments will be provided in the appointment card packets.  If a student is a senior but does not receive an appointment card in the mail, they should call in to the local Lifetouch Customer Service team to schedule by phone.  The number to call is: 1-800-445-1189


If, after reviewing the report card, a parent or student decides to request a change to how the SECOND SEMESTER FINAL grade is being reflected (Pass to Letter Grade OR Letter Grade to Pass), please complete the google form that is linked here:  https://forms.gle/k1o3ANpxrfDnue246.  Please complete the form for each course where a grade change is being requested.
