If your child was absent, Roots & Shoots Photography will automatically take their portrait on Make-up day. If you are unhappy with the portrait in your package, please have your child bring the package back to the photographer (keep the class photo) and they will take a new portrait, refill your package with that image and deliver packages back to the school in roughly three weeks.
If you wish to order MAKE UP DAY portraits below is a link to a form:
Orders must be submitted by Thursday, 11/15.
