School Photo Sessions Postponed
Currently, Bellevue School District is not allowing students or vendors on campuses within the district. This means we aren't currently scheduled to take school photos.

We are working with Lifetouch, our photographer partner, to schedule photos as soon as possible and also investigating alternate options. Updates will be sent out through the Chatter when we know more!
