How many times in a school year does your school do picture day?

My dd brought home yet another form/letter saying they are doing another picture day in Feb! In Sept. they had pictures done & now next month they are doing pictures from Life Touch. Does your school system do this?

  • That's crazy. Ours does them once a year, in late October. I grew up getting them done once a year too, in late September. If our school decided to do twice a year, they'd really hear about it - a lot of parents in our school can't afford the once a year as it is.

  • Yes, they do fall and spring pictures at my DD's school. They also did that when i went to school too, they always did pictures twice a yr.

  • Yep LifeTouch takes my kids school pictures too. They do the fall pictures and in the spring they do pictures as well- this time you can choose a pose and they usually have real backgrounds (not just a plain color). This is optional- you don't have to buy the pictures I think they do it for a 'fundraiser' and the schools get a %.

  • Our school does Fall and Spring and Christmas pics with Santa. I usually buy them once a year.

  • two, but I think thats becoming an antiquated practice in this age of digital cameras and the prices they are when you can just take your own for free.

  • Twice. Fall and Spring.
