Pictures at 3:45pm for Varsity & JV

From now until 48 hours after picture daythis website will be available for ordering team or individual photos. If an order is not made by the deadline, there will still be an opportunity to order pictures again in the future. When the pictures are delivered tot he school, there will be instructions on how to order additional photoshowever, please note that the prices will be higher than the initial pre-order pricing.

Parents, please remind your child to make sure to have their individual photo taken by the photographers if you have ordered photos or plan to order photos later. Lifetouch, by practice, takes individual photos of each athlete regardless of pre-orders placed or plans to order, but cannot be responsible for keeping track of all athletes if they are avoiding having their individual photo taken. Coaches are being reminded to encourage all athletes to have their individual photos taken, but it helps to have the parents emphasize this as well! Thank you for your cooperation in this!
