Tri-Rivers Senior Recognition has always been a wonderful evening of celebration held at the historic Marion Palace Theatre. This year, with the COVID-19 pandemic, things will have to happen differently. Like our Seniors, all of us at Tri-Rivers are sad to forgo this tradition.
However, most important to us is the safety and well-being of our students, their families, our staff and community members. We have been recognizing our Seniors on our Social Media and reaching out to them in different ways.
Although we are not planning a ceremony, we are going to hold
Senior Portfolio Pick-Up Days,
May 29-June 9 in the Tri-Rivers Auditorium, on the west side of our building.
There will be designated time slots for each program.
In order to keep our students and staff safe, these guidelines must be followed.

…Park in the West Parking Lot outside of the Auditorium.
…Remain in their vehicles until our Student Resource Officer, Deputy Layne, directs them to enter the Auditorium thru the West Auditorium Doors. Masks must be worn. Hand sanitizer will be provided. Temperatures will be taken.
…Students will enter one at time. Seniors may bring one adult with them into the Auditorium to be their “photographer” to take a photo of them with their portfolio/awards in front of the Tri-Rivers backdrop, if they wish to do that. When the Senior exits, there will be another backdrop outside in the parking lot for Seniors to take a photo with their family—limit of 4 people. (weather permitting)
What is Portfolio Pickup Day?
…An opportunity to connect with your Career Tech Instructor and Principal Solis. (No physical contact, but lots of waves and well wishing!)
…A time to pick up a bag of goodies (the bags will be on a table with your name), including:
• Your Portfolio, which contains important certificates, honors, competencies, résumés
• A keepsake T-shirt
• A keepsake program/newsletter
• Messages from Staff
• And more!
Again, please know that we would have loved to have had Senior Recognition 2020 at The Palace, but with the safety measures in place, that is not possible. Know that we miss you, we love you and you will always be part of the Tri-Rivers Family!
We are also working hard to create a memorable video filled with messages, awards, special moments & more! It will debut Thursday, May 28 at 7pm on our social media, our tririvers.com website and YouTube channel.
