Hi Will,

You can mass upload avatars from a publicly hosted location using this github script​. However, that won't lock the avatar, you would have to manually lock for each student with the Users> Manage Profile Pictures Interface. This could possibly be offered as a Feature Idea to improve the way the avatars work for K12 and not allowing them to change pre-set avatars by admins.
