Last night at our monthly school board meeting, Cory with Friends of Tenino parks joined us as our community partner for the month of February. This is such a great group of people committed to orchestrating ways and means to enhance and maintain consistent, quality, and enduring park habitat for current and future generations. Friends of Tenino parks puts on an Earth Day celebration each year. This year it will be held on April 23, 2022 in the Tenino City Park. During the event participants will be asked to aid volunteers from the Friends of Tenino Parks in various "park cleanup" activities to be determined prior to the event. The school within the Tenino School District with the most registered participants (attendance to the event is mandatory) will receive a cash prize that will be awarded to the School's ASB or comparable program. The event can also be used to complete Community Service Hours. Register here: https://www.friendsoftenino.org/

Please take the opportunity to have your voice heard regarding the potential for a state mandated COVID-19 Vaccine requirement for school attendance using the survey below. The district learned of this opportunity for feedback yesterday, and found out today that there is a February 2nd deadline. About the Survey The Washington State Board of Health is inviting parents and caregivers of school-age children to complete a survey to provide input that will be shared with a Technical Advisory Group the Board has convened to assess COVID-19 vaccine for inclusion in chapter 246-105 WAC. The TAG will utilize the 9-criteria framework established by the board to assess and evaluate the COVID-19 vaccine for consideration in chapter 246-105 WAC. The Board is seeking input from parents and caregivers as it relates to Criteria Nine: “The burden of compliance for the vaccine containing this antigen is reasonable for the parent/caregiver.” To provide input, please complete the survey below: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=F-LQEU4mCkCLoFfcwSfXLefTdB7APrJAvkZ64U-RFNVUQTlGRFVMOFM1MEVNVU1KTk9DN085REhZNy4u We encourage all who can to complete the survey by February 2, 2022.
