The following email is from Lifetouch - I reached out to them to inquire about how they are handling the Spring Pictures at VES. This is their response.
Naturally we are all facing an unprecedented situation and we will do our best to adapt to things as they change. Currently, some of our production facilities are operating at capacity. However, because Illinois is a shelter in place state, the shipments are now coming to our office - which is closed as we are a non-essential business. So we are doing our best to manage with a skeleton crew and will be sorting and shipping once we are given the all clear.
As for Spring Pictures and Yearbooks -- I just wanted you to know we are working to come up with plan a, b and/or c for the delivery and distribution of both.
At this point, of course we are hoping everyone can be back in school before the end of the year, but if not, rest assured everyone who ordered will get their order. Even if we have to ship the items to students' homes at our expense of course.
I will keep you posted and we will work together to make the best decision for all when we know more. In the meantime, we share our best wishes for your safety and well-being, and for that of your families and school community.

As previously sent in email and posted on the VES Facebook, there will be a mass distribution of paper materials for students to work on during the school closure period from March 31-April 7. This will occur on Tuesday, March 31 from 9:00-12:00 and 3:00-6:00 in the VES circle drive. Please stay in your car through the circle drive and a VES staff member will hand you your child's materials. We will not be accepting paper materials and the log that you will have completed by then as we do not want to take in any materials from the outside due to health and safety reasons. When the school closure is complete you will be turning in all the completed materials and time logs at one time. This distribution of materials will include PreK through 2nd grade. Since 3rd grade is mostly working through Google Classroom via their Chromebooks, the parents of 3rd graders do not need to come to this mass distribution unless you have made special arrangements to get a paper packet with your child's specific teacher ahead of time The 3rd grade teachers will continue to provide assignments and instruction via the Google Classroom. If you have questions please email your child's teacher or Mrs. Mesnard at firstname.lastname@example.org
