When your elementary school does school pictures what is the protocol? Do you get to preorder pictures, are you told in advance how much it is?
My son's school sent home a paper yesterday stating school pictures are Oct. 1st. It also states that if the parents aren't happy with the pictures they are offered a retake for $5.00.
No where does it state packages available or the pricing. You are not told how much it costs.
I am in a group on FB for the PTSA association. The president posted on FACEBOOK the packages are $19.-$45. Yet, she doesn't state WHEN the money is due. I asked when the money is due. She replied at the time of order. So I asked is that the same day as pictures being taken? No reply from her. I feel this is extremely disorganized. As a parent, single or married people need to budget and be aware when an extra expense comes up so I can make sure I have enough money for whenever this is due.
I really don't feel as if I'm making a big deal out of this. I feel like the communication in this school, well simply put it sucks.
**Updated: Today my son brought home his school picture proof (his picture made me cry) and the order form was attached anywhere from $20-$45.00 for pictures. We have 5 days to hand in the money so far not impressed with handing in cash-the lunch lady kept his $2.50 in change today!!**
