Dear Parents/Guardians, We are excited to get the student school picture viewing/ordering process started. In order to do this, our photography company, Barberito Photographers, will be utilizing an online viewing/ordering process. This process will begin by the photography company sending each student’s parent/guardian an email with a specific, individualized link and instructions for viewing/ordering the student’s picture. You will receive email communication ONLY in regards to your child’s individual picture viewing/ordering information. You will not receive promotional emails from the photography company nor will your email address be shared with outside parties. Following the start of this process, there will be picture-taking (retake) days scheduled for those students who have to take an original school picture as well as students who will be taking a retake picture. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Barberito Photographers at email@example.com or (504) 455-6818.
