Picture Days are coming!
Hello Weller Families,
We will be hosting a picture day for students and staff members on:
- September 23rd from 10:00am to 6:00pm
- September 26th from 9:00am to 12:00pm
Picture day is completely voluntary, but highly encouraged. Students will not have a chance to be featured in the class composite photo or school yearbook if they do not attend on the two scheduled picture days. We do hope to see many people come take pictures! It is a nice ritual for the start of the year to continue, since we can do it safely (see details below)! But, of course, if you are uncomfortable bringing your child for a picture, we completely understand!
On September 23rd, pictures will be held inside of our Multi-Use Room. Photographers from Lifetouch will set up two stations with two staff members at each station. The two stations will be separated on two opposite sides of the Multi-Use Room. Only two students and their family member will be allowed inside at a time to take their picture. At any given time, there will be a maximum of ten people spread out inside of our large Multi-Use Room space. There will be one way to enter the Multi-Use Room and one way to exit.
On September 26th, pictures will be held outside of the Multi-Use Room at the lunch table area. We will have one photographer on this day and one staff member from Lifetouch. There will be one way to approach the photo area and one way to exit.
Each time slots has a maximum of 45 sign-ups to ensure that students are spread out throughout the two days of Picture Day.
All visitors must wear masks and follow social distancing protocols. Students will be instructed to take off their masks right before their picture is taken. Our photography company, LifeTouch, has updated and rigorous safety measures, which can be found here. Students who take pictures will also receive updated student ID cards (which can be used when purchasing lunch from the school cafeteria).
Students or their family member must know their Student ID # when they come to take their picture. Students can wear free dress for our Fall pictures, they just need to be appropriate choices.
Sign up for a Picture Day time slot HERE by September 21st.
Please see the attached flyer, which lists prices for picture packages (they start as low as $14.99).
