Jefferson and Fox River Academy Picture Day

Jefferson and Fox River Academy Picture Day
Posted on 10/01/2020
School pictures create memories that last a lifetime. The Appleton Area School District (AASD) has collaborated with the Appleton Citywide PTA and Lifetouch, a photography company, to schedule elementary school pictures in a way that is safe for our students and families.

Each elementary building will offer a school picture opportunity. School pictures are not required; they are optional and offered as a courtesy for families. This opportunity is limited to elementary students who are currently enrolled in AASD. If your child is enrolled in the AASD Elementary Virtual School (EVS) they will sign up for pictures at their home school. Because this school picture opportunity is optional, we will not be able to offer the free class composite picture this year as part of the package.

Jefferson and Fox River Academy Picture Day will be on October 28th, 2020, starting at 1:00 PM until 5:00 PM. You will receive a link to Sign Up Genius to register for your time slot in the next week or two.

Safety Precautions:
● All pictures orders will be completed online prior to the picture opportunity to limit contact.
● Families/students must complete a self check for Covid-19 symptoms; they may not attend the picture opportunity if there are symptoms. We will offer a picture retake later in the year for those students who are not able to attend.

Student Illness Screening/Guide
● Due to the need to ensure appropriate physical distancing, families will need to make an appointment to be photographed. Families with three or more children should register for two picture appointment slots.
● The school site will have a staff member or volunteer at the given entrance to direct you and/or your child where to go once in the building. It is recommended that if you have an older child in grades 4th -8th, he/she enters the building for their pictures independently. If you have younger children, there will be a limit of one adult to accompany the student in for pictures.
● Families and students will be required to wear a mask upon entering the building. Students will be allowed to remove their mask when taking their picture.
● Lifetouch staff will be following all safety protocols with practicing physical distancing and wearing masks. Please view this video for more information.

If conditions related to the pandemic require the cancellation of an elementary building’s picture opportunity, we would work with Lifetouch to reschedule it to a later date if possible. Your school would communicate any updates to you if the schedule would change.
