Spring Picture Day is March 4th
HR Imaging will be back to Parkview to take our student’s spring pictures on March 4th. Every student will be getting their picture taken as this is the image that will be on your child’s fall student ID card. For Spring Pictures, the company does something a little different than in the fall. Their Spring program is proofing, no money is needed on picture day. The photographers will take 3 poses of each student and about a week or two we will receive the picture proofs to send home to each student. On that proof is a due date, parents can order online or send the proof order envelope back to the school for us to give HR Imaging.

Important Dates to Remember
Visit this document to review important dates for kindergarten families for the 2021-2022 school year.
Leaving During the School Day?
Students who need to leave school during the school day must have parental permission. The morning of the absence, please do one of the following: send a note with your child and have them bring it to the office, email firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or call 965-9640. We will then get a pass for your child to come to the office at the designated time. The student checks out with the office and will be released when a parent arrives at the main doors (W1) in order to keep building traffic to a minimum. Following this process will help ensure your student is ready at the designated time and that all staff and teachers are prepared for their departure.
If your child was absent on picture day, or if you want picture retaken for any reason, they will be able to have picture taken on retake day. Parkview’s Picture Retake Day will be on Jan. 11th & 12th. Should you need any assistance please contact HR Imaging’s customer service department at 815-433-1766.
If you are having retakes, please have your child bring their picture package back for the photographers. If you are wanting to purchase school pictures, you can do it one of two ways: 1) Pay online at shop.hrimaging.com BEFORE the picture date and the pictures will be mailed to PV. If you order after the date, you can still get them but will pay a shipping/handling charge to have them mailed to your home. 2) There are also flyers in the main office that your child can pick up, you fill out and return with a check and student gives to the photographer.
