  • Did you miss your Lifetouch Photo?

    Any Madison students who did not have a photo taken by Lifetouch can now submit their photograph electronically. This photo will become the student's yearbook photo and ID card/Hop Pass (bus pass) photo.

    When we return to in-person learning students will be able to the Main Office have a Student ID printed.

    Any student with an immediate need for an ID with a Trimet Pass please email Trinh Ngo, tngo@pps.net after submitting a photo to the portal; she will let you know a day that you can come to Madison and pick it up.
    Please follow these instructions and use the link below to submit your photo:
    Photos should be in color. 
    Photos must be cropped the way they are intended to appear (minimal cropping may occur when pages are created).
    Photos must be of torso and head.
    We must be able to see your face.
    Images must be a vertical portrait layout.
    Image size: 3” high x 2.25” wide, resolution of 300 pixels/inch (900 pixels by 675 pixels).
    File format: JPEG.
    File Name: LastName_FirstName_STUDENT ID#_grade. Example: Hernandez_Franny_STUDENT ID#_11th.jpg (use your preferred first name)
