Picture Days: Monday, October 26, to Thursday, October 29, and Monday, November 2, from 11:30 AM to 4:30 PM

Good Afternoon, Monroe Lions,

It is time to come and get your student photo taken for the 2020-21 school year! Thank you for your patience as we worked through some re-scheduling issues. This photo will be used for our annual yearbook as well as your student ID card. We have worked with Lifetouch, our photography provider, to plan a safe and socially distanced procedure to include all our students who wished to be photographed.

Photo days and times are Monday, October 26, to Thursday, October 29, and Monday, November 2, from 11:30 AM to 4:30 PM.

Please use the following SignupGenius link to sign up for your time slot.

You will see 20 slots for each 1-hour block of time. Please select the time of your choice and place "1" as the quantity for one student (this is signing up the individual student), and for those with multiple students, select the correct number of students (ex: if you have two would select "2").

Photos will be taken in the Monroe Cafeteria. In order to provide families an option for picture day, we will have a highly regulated, socially distanced picture day. Please remain spaced apart and wear a face mask. Your student may remove their face mask when asked by a Lifetouch photographer. We will have social distancing markers spacing our students out while they check in. The photo process will be a paperless and a non-physical exchange between student and photographer. Students will be able to remove their masks for the photograph. There will be two camera stations set up spaced out in the cafeteria. Your visit should take about 20 minutes.

The campus is open only for the purpose of picture day. Please exit campus as soon as you are finished with your photo appointment.

Students- this is a school dress in school appropriate attire.

IMPORTANT: In order for the school to be able to publish your student's photo in the yearbook, a photo permission form with a wet signature must be on file. Please visit, print, and sign the form and return it to the office as soon as possible. For your convenience, we will have a staff member available at every picture day, so you may turn it in at that time if it's easier. If you prefer to mail your form, you may send it via US mail to Minerva Gamez at 402 W. Colorado Blvd. Monrovia, CA 91016.
