GOOD News, Parents! Iconik Studio has printed the picture proofs and we will be sending those home next week. The job is "active" so parents can view the images if students made it home with that information. It was sent home on picture day, August 31. If your child did not bring his/her information home, do not worry! We will send it all home again next week with the proofs. Have a wonderful weekend. :)

Herrin Elementary School would love to give a huge SHOUT OUT to our photography team from Iconik Studios. They were fantastic with staff and students today making sure they tried to make everyone look their best. They gave many compliments and lots of high fives and "knucks". They took their time with all the photos while still being able to fix shirts, glasses, and even hair! Students will be bringing home a picture ticket today, so please be looking for those. Parents can scan the QR code with the camera on their phone for more ordering information. In addition, a picture proof will be sent home in about 3 weeks with ordering information. Be watching for the announcement!

SAVE THE DATE: Wednesday, August 31, 2022, will be the first picture day at H.E.S. After students have had their picture taken, parents will receive a ticket with an online code and website they can log into. Please keep in mind that images will not be available the same day (the ticket says that and gives the day images will be available) but you can enter an email address to be notified when the job is ready. Approximately 3 weeks after picture day, students will receive a proof with a sample image and all ordering instructions. Please do not call the school. We will be posting this information as soon as we receive the proofs. If we have your email address on file, parents will receive an email about a week after proofs are delivered with a direct link to their image. All orders will be placed online and will be shipped directly to students’ homes. Please be patient as we are working with a new company this year. We hope that this will be a positive experience for all parties involved. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
