"LifeTouch" in blue script on white backgroundSFCMS’s Make-up Picture Day is scheduled for Thursday, December 13, 2018.

Students who were absent for our first Picture Day will have the opportunity to have their pictures taken for this year’s school yearbook. Additionally, students with money-in-hand will also be permitted to retake their pictures for purchase on this day.

Pre-pay envelopes were sent home to purchase a picture package. Additional envelopes will be available on site. Proofs will not be sent home, so please take advantage of the pre-pay if you would like to purchase pictures.

Because this is a Make-up Picture Day, students should attend school in their normal dress code clothing. Students who are taking pictures may bring a change of clothes to school and change clothes for the purposes of the picture only. School uniform is acceptable to wear if you would like, or you may choose to “dress up” (not “dress down”) to wear something special. The following items will not be allowed.

• Jeans or denim clothing
• Low-rise, sagging, or oversized clothing
• Shorts, dresses, or skirts that do not meet dress code length or style requirements
• See-through, fishnet, midriff, tank tops, or low cut clothing
• T-shirts, jerseys, or shirts with slogans or writing
• Flip flops or other non-dress code shoes
• Sunglasses, hats, or scarves covering the head
