VSN photographers will wear masks, social distance and have sanitizer. ➔ Parents should try to PREorder ONLINE www.vsnmichigan.com/preorder , but PRINT A RECEIPT for the photographer. ➔ Athletes MUST wear MASKS when not in front of VSN’s camera . Athletes must leave the area upon completion of photo. ➔ SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED : Athletes should use lines in the field or pavement to form the line for photos.
➔ Only coaches, managers + athletes are allowed at photo day.
Sorry, NO PARENTS are allowed.
➔ NO OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS other than VSN staff are allowed to take photos during your VSN Photo Day.
➔ Email requests for other groups (such as seniors) that parents want to order or groups needed for a printed program.
➔ REINFORCE SAFE PRACTICES: Remind students NOT to take SELFIES without masks/distancing to post to social media.
