Picture Day @ Underwood 2020

Dear Underwood Families,

I hope each one of you enjoyed the long weekend and, if you were observing the holiday, I hope you had an easy and meaningful fast. I am writing to share information with all families about Picture Day 2020 at the Underwood School. 

Coffee Pond will be taking school portraits of Underwood students in the Distance Learning Academy on Thursday, October 8th and Tuesday, October 13th outside Underwood after school from 3:30-4:30pm. Please click here to sign your child(ren) up for a 10 minute time slot. Please arrive as close to your chosen time as possible to limit the number of people gathered.

Coffee Pond has introduced online ordering and a new barcode scanning system to eliminate the need to pass paper between individuals. Please order your photos at https://www.coffeepond.com/ in advance of your child’s picture day. Coffee Pond’s Covid-19 Safety Measures and Online Ordering Instructions are attached.

You do not have to order photos to have your child’s portrait taken. We encourage as many families as possible to have their child’s picture taken, as these are the pictures used for their profiles in Aspen and used internally at the school. In addition, Coffee Pond archives grade level photos (K-5) for each graduating class to use in its 5th grade yearbook. It’s a great way to look back at the students over the years!

Class photos will not be taken this year for students in either learning model due to social distancing measures. 

Please contact Lacey Rochford with any questions at rochfordl@newton.k12.ma.us.

Thank you,


Dr. Sujan S. Talukdar
