JUNIORS – Class of 2021

When do I get my Cap and Gown?
Next year. Calm down.

When do I take Senior Photos?
The senior portraits in the TCHS yearbook are all taken by Glamourcraft studio. There is no sitting fee and students may choose either their cap & gown or formal tux or drape photo for the yearbook. Only Glamourcraft senior portraits are used in the portrait section. Although they are usually during June, there will be no senior pictures scheduled during June, this year. Right now, it looks like senior photos will likely be scheduled during the fall on campus. As decisions are made, that information will be shared over email and phone calls to Class of 2021 parents and guardians.

Senior Yearbook Tributes will be due online October 31. You upload your favorite photos and we design a beautiful tribute. Parents can begin sorting through their favorite family photos now.

What about Parking for next year and Senior Spots?
Nothing is announced at this time. They’re working on it.

Can I buy a Senior Activity Card for 2020-2021?
Nothing is announced at this time. They’re working on it.
