Superintendent's Message


Mark Neal

It is that time of year when the weather starts to break and another winter is behind us. It has been a unique school year at Tri-Valley, and I look forward to wrapping it up with Commencement at 7 P.M. on Friday, May 28th at Jack Anderson Stadium. 

Commencement will be held outside in Jack Anderson Stadium where there will be plenty of room for social distancing. If the weather does not cooperate, the ceremony will be held on Saturday morning at 10:00 AM in the same location. There is no plan in place for an indoor ceremony due to Muskingum County Health Department guidelines.

Spring sports are in full swing after last year’s hiatus and students are slowly returning to some normalcy post-COVID. As the school year winds down and state testing concludes, many end-of-the-year traditions will resume with slight modifications. It is the intention of myself and the school board to have a complete return to normal when school reopens this fall! This means football Fridays, Soccer, Volleyball, Band Competitions, Camp Ohio, a Homecoming Dance… and no masks!

We will be offering additional summer school opportunities for those who may have struggled with remote learning or COVID. Please contact your building principal for further information.

I have said it many times, but I am eternally grateful to our students, employees, parents, and the entire community for the level of cooperation and support during this school year.

Have a great summer break!
