  • School Picture Retakes

    Picture retakes are scheduled for Tuesday, December 1, 2020.  Any student who purchased a picture package in October but wants a retake should bring the package back on December 1, 2020, and take a retake picture.   Anyone who was absent on the original picture day or who started at Rice MS after the first picture day also has an opportunity to have a picture taken and order pictures.  

    Face-to-Face students will take pictures in the morning.  School at Home students will take pictures in the afternoon during asynchronous time.

    School@Home students can sign up for a retake using the Sign-Up Genius.  Parents of School@Home students getting a retake will use the bus lane at the front of the building. Students will enter the small gym through the doors at the front of the school and will exit using the gym's side door.  Students must wear masks, which may be removed for picture taking only, and will be socially distanced while waiting in line.

    Please note: Pictures must be pre-ordered.  To do so, please follow the directions below. 

    To order pictures:

    1. Visit mylifetouch.com
    2. Enter:   PGNT4CTVE
    3. Order your desired package
