On behalf of Tri-City CUSD #1, we would like to take this opportunity to congratulate your son/daughter for accomplishing this milestone in their academic career. There are several items that I would like to inform the student and parents to remember. First, there will be only one graduation practice. The practice will be held June 4th from 1:00-2:00 p.m. in the sports complex. Pictures will be taken at 2:00 p.m. on June 4th. Seniors need to bring their caps and gowns so pictures can be taken.
Graduation will be held June 9th at 2:00 p.m. Graduation is a very special time for students and parents. To maintain the formal atmosphere, we ask the students dress accordingly. Gentlemen please wear slacks and dress shoes. Ladies, please wear appropriate dresses or slacks and dress shoes. “Flip Flops” or sandals are discouraged. At Tri-City, we understand the importance of all students being recognized; however, we ask that you do this in an appropriate manner. Air horns, cowbells, and other noise devices are discouraged, as they will take away from the formal ceremony proceedings. Doors open to the sports complex at 12:30. Graduates need to arrive no later than 1:15 p.m. Students will meet in the chorus room until start time.
In conclusion, we look forward to seeing everyone there and making it a very memorable day for students, parents, and family members. If you have any questions, feel free to call me at 217-364-4530.
Tri-City Middle/High schools
Parents and students,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for a wonderful year. The schedule of tests is listed below. We will still have a 2:00 p.m. dismissal on both days (May 31&June 3). On May 30th, the teachers will use this day as a “review or study” day. Second, all students will be required to stay the ENTIRE day. No students will be allowed to leave early from school. The only exception to this would be CACC students. The last day for CACC students will be May 24th. Therefore, CACC students will come to class at Tri-City and honor their commitment with us and then leave the building for the remainder of the day only if CACC is not in attendance. Once CACC students have left after their last TC class, they may return to school only when school has dismissed. Students need to take any perishable items out of their lockers so they are not left over the summer break. Students may clean out their lockers before or after school only. If there are any questions, feel free to call me at the school at 364-4530.
Students always need to be reminded how much emphasis is placed on these exams. The exams that are given at the high school are worth 1/5 or 20% of the student’s grade. Students need to always start preparing for the final in advance to give themselves every opportunity to be successful. If students have questions, they need to ask their teachers for assistance. Again, I wish everyone a relaxing summer break and look forward to seeing the students when they return in August.

On November 29th, we had a special guest that was our "principal for a day". Nick French, an 11 year old a sixth grader, in Virginia , IL was diagnosed with Medigloblastoma a (brain tumor) 4 years ago.
Nick was sent to St. Jude's four years ago and underwent six surgeries, four chemotherapy treatments, and thirty one radiation treatments. We are pleased to say Nick has been cancer free for two years. In honor of "No Shave November" to honor St. Jude's hospital, some of the staff participated in this yearly event and we invited our special guest to participate as principal for the day. Nick did a variety of duties such as: answering phones, announcements, and lunch duty. It was a great honor and privilege to have Nick here at Tri-City, and we look forward to "Mr. French" visiting our school again.
