JK-7 retakes will be held on Wednesday, Oct 28. There is no need to "sign up" for a retake, but please let your student's teacher/advisor know a few days in advance. A time will be arranged for each class's retakes to see the photographer.

Stuart Rodgers handles all orders online and any retakes are by studio appointmentPlease note: The deadline for 8th graders to pick a pose for the yearbook is November 24th, so any 8th grade retakes must be completed by November 9th to allow time for processing.
