Senior Pictures Coming to DHHS

We have finally been cleared to have Cady Studios come to the school to take senior pictures! Hurray! 

They will be coming Thursday, December 10 from 10-6 in the theater

Book your appointment now (or change your location to the school if you signed up for the studio). Note that if you signed up for certain packages those can only be done at the studio. The basic packages will be available at the school though.  

Visit www.cadystudios.com or use the chat feature on their website because we've been told that the phone number isn't picking up for some reason. 

You must have an appointment (no walk-ups accepted). We're attaching their COVID-19 procedures that everyone must observe.

Email emily_robinson@dekalbschoolsga.org if you have general questions.
