Picture Day

Working with our partners at Milan Rose Photographers of Hillsborough, we have arranged for a safe, and hopefully convenient, process for all students at HMS to have their school portrait taken even as we remain in all virtual-instruction mode through drive-up photo sessions on the afternoon/evenings of September 21-24.  

 

 We know that families look forward to these annual school photos as a valued keepsake of their youngster through the years.  In addition, the school photo is an important element of our school records for student ID’s, as part of our student information system, and for the school yearbook.  

 

 We hope to have every student photographed for ID’s and yearbook purposes regardless of whether you have interest in a portrait package.  The optional portrait order forms are attached.   If you wish to purchase a photo package, please complete the order form in advance, include payment, and have your child bring both the order form and payment with them to the photo session.

THE PHOTO PROCESS


Milan Rose will provide us with three photographers on September 21-24 from 2:00 - 7:00 pm.  We will set up in the HMS gym and regulate the flow of students into the gym, from the rear of the school, in small groups of fewer than 12 at a time to maintain broad social distance. 

 

Each student has received an email with a designated date and time to report for their photo between 2:00 - 6:00 p.m. on a specific date.  This is critical to help us regulate the flow of traffic and keep wait time to a minimum.  However, if unable to make the appointed time, note that the hour between 6:00-7:00 pm each night has been left unscheduled and open for anyone who couldn’t make the earlier appointments that day.  We will also offer a make-up session in school at a later date in October for students who are unable to make any of these times.

 

 Parents or guardians are to drive to HMS at or near their designated times and drive around to the rear entrance of the school.  Students (only) wearing a mask should be dropped off and enter the building at the location designated in the back of the school (see map).   The accompanying adult driver must remain with the vehicle and pull forward to the pick-up location where the student will rejoin once their photo has been taken.

Students (wearing masks) will enter the building and be directed into the gym to one of the three photographer stations.  Once seated and directed by the staff, the student may remove his/her mask for a few moments while the photo is taken.  Students will exit the other side of the gym and directly to the pick-up location in the rear of the school.


We are pleased to offer this service to our HMS students and families and look forward to seeing your smiles (if only briefly) for your school portrait.


Sincerely, 


Joseph Trybulski, Ed.D.
