Tri-County School Corporation complies with the state statutes on immunizations. Many of our students and their families have exemptions for religious or health reasons. Therefore, it is our obligation to let you all know that one case of whooping cough has been diagnosed in our schools. The student and siblings have been and continue to be under the care of a doctor. They have received the proper treatment. The student and siblings are current on all required immunizations.
The school personnel are disinfecting desk tops and bathroom fixtures daily. Other surfaces receive disinfecting regularly each week. Students are asked to not trade or share personal items. Please be very diligent with hand washing and hand sanitizing. Always wash your hands with soap and water after using the bathroom, before eating, and after coughing and/or blowing your nose. Use hand sanitizer frequently during the day. Hand washing is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of disease and infections.
If symptoms of prolonged coughing occur, please contact your doctor.
Thank you for your help in this important health issue.

The Tri-County Educational Foundation, established in March 2002, is a non-profit organization whose sole mission is "to promote academics at Tri-County Schools". The Foundation is a separate entity from the Tri-County School Corporation but shares the vision of providing and supporting academic opportunities that benefit every student. The Foundation has been able to financially support academic projects and provide student scholarships that the Corporation is not allowed to financially back because of limited funding or state law. Recent economic stress placed on most public school corporations underscores the importance of the Foundation's mission, to enhance the educational process afforded the youth of the Tri-County School Corporation.
Since its inception, the Foundation has funded twenty-nine $500 scholarships and continued to broaden the educational experience for the entire Tri-County student body. The Foundation seeks ideas for the academic enhancement programs it funds from the dedicated educators employed by the Corporation. These professionals have demonstrated a commitment to creating a learning environment that extends beyond the boundaries of traditional classrooms.
The monetary funds the Foundation possesses to support these academic projects come solely from donations, memorial gifts, and an annual telethon targeting the local community. All donations are tax deductible and the names of generous donors of $ 100 or more will be inscribed on a permanent plaque to be displayed on the school's Wall of Fame.
The School's motto is "One of the smallest, striving to be one of the best". We sincerely ask for your financial support to fulfill that motto by enriching the academic experiences of all present and future Tri-County students.
