School Picture Day – next Tuesday, September 15th
TSS Photography will be here next Tuesday, September 15th to take school pictures.  Whether pictures are purchased or not, every child will have a picture taken since it will serve as their yearbook picture.  Ordering instructions are included in the attached flyer entitled, “SVdP Fall Picture Day Ordering Instructions.”  TSS is moving to a view first format for fall pictures.  No prepay and no order forms.  Parents will be sent via email a link to order on the same day or next day with their child's proof images.  There will also be background choice options.  Parents can then order right then, or if they want retakes TSS can do a retake on retake day.
