Metro Families, You may have received communications from Lifetouch (our school picture people) regarding picture days this week. Please disregard those notices and do not bring your child to take pictures Tuesday or Thursday! We are only taking ID photos for students who are new to Metro this year; those will take place during the MAP testing and orientation. We will not be doing school pictures for returning students at this time. We plan to reschedule picture day later in the school year. This is for the safety of our staff, students and families. Thanks, and sorry for any confusion!
