Dear Tenino Families, In collaboration with our employee groups the District now has a solid date to reopen in-person learning at THS. As in the previous plan we will be using a hybrid A/B model with students in group ‘A’ attending all day on Mondays and Thursdays, group ‘B’ students attending all day on Tuesdays and Fridays, with Wednesday being a remote day for all students. The start date for THS is: March 8, 2021 group A March 9, 2021 group B The Thurston County transmission rate has fallen below 200 cases per 100,000. As of this writing there are 137.9 cases per 100,000 residents over a 14-day running average. Important Notes: Previously we asked you to select either the in-person or remote learning option for your child(ren). In addition, we asked if you planned on having your child(ren) ride the bus to and/or from school. IF you have changed your preference, contact your child’s school ASAP. Otherwise, we will plan for your child(ren) to receive the program you have originally chosen. You will be contacted by First Student if you chose to access bus transportation. Please contact your child(ren)'s school if you have changed your preference regarding transportation. For families choosing in-person learning, we will be requiring families to complete a quarterly attestation. If you have not done so you can access the attestation form here. We will continue to do daily screening and temperature checks for all in-person students. For children currently receiving special education services at THS your child’s teacher will be reaching out to you if there is any change to your child’s program or schedule. We have been asked, what gives you confidence we can operate schools safely in a hybrid model? Essentially, the State and County departments of health are clear that the modeling data and school experiences across Washington State have shown mitigation measures, including symptom screening, robust contact tracing, mask wearing, physical distancing, facility cleaning, and hygiene mitigate the risks and are highly effective in reducing school transmission.

Tenino School Board Names New Superintendent The Tenino School District Board of Directors began an executive search in December to find a successor to replace Superintendent Joe Belmonte who will retire at the end of June. The search attracted 23 applicants and, after screening and interviews, the Board voted at a special meeting on February 11, 2021 to offer the position to Clint Endicott, Executive Director of K-12 Leadership and Accountability for the Yakima School District, pending mutual agreement on an employment contract. view image
