I am so beyond feed up with the picture people at my kids school. Heck even the school. Apparently they think money is falling out my butt. When they had class pics got a 2 day warning. So I had 2 days to come up with 15 dollars okay no big deal. But today the kids bring home the order form for regular pictures. The prices are ridiculous for just one picture is 12 dollars. So for 3 kids is 36 dollars. The money is due tomorrow. If you dont buy them by tomorrow even though the order form came in today you get charged another 5 dollars. It is in between payday right now. So no money tell next week. Why do they do this. At least give the parents a couple of days to have the money they give you over night. Grrr vent over

 I haven't paid for school pictures because they want too much $ for them. It is ridiculous.

Idea.

Opt out of the yearbook pic. Go to walmart and get a school style photo or whatever of each kid. Choose 4 poses and get TEN sheets for only $99.99 (when u have the money)z

You don't have to get them.  I get one a year for each kid and that's it.

yeah i don't order school pics, only the class pic.  take them to walmart for 7$ package that has MORE pics and you get to decide which pic you want.

our school(s) work with LifeTouch and we always get between 7-14 days notice (I also have 3 in school right now).  So sorry that you are having this issue...pictures should always be a great momento...not a burden.
