Make-up Picture Day
If you purchased school pictures, you should have received them early last week. If you would like to have your child retake pictures, or if your child was absent on picture day, Strawbridge Studios will return to Envision on Tuesday, September 16th. If your child missed our first picture day, please return the order envelope to your child’s teacher. To retake pictures, your child must return their complete, original photo packet. If pictures are purchased or exchanged on September 16th, new photo packets will be delivered to school in about 2 weeks. Students should wear ESA uniforms to take school pictures.
