Dear Tenino Families: Thurston County Superintendents met this week with the Thurston County Public Health and Social Services Health Officer Dr. Abdelmalek. During the past two weeks, COVID transmissions in the county have continued to rise. As a result, we will continue to serve students in the current instructional model. The current remote learning model will continue through December of 2020. To read Dr. Abdelmalek’s most recent letter click the following link: https://www.thurstoncountywa.gov/phss/phssdocuments/Letter%20to%20Schools%2011.6.20%20FINAL.pdf. I am disappointed that we will not be able to transition to more in-person learning for your children. That said, because we have been teaching small groups of students in-person and safely, we will continue to provide these services. Finally, we will continue to plan and prepare for in-person instruction and will be ready to transition to in-person learning when permitted. Thank you for your support and patience. As always, if you or your child need support during online learning please connect with your child’s teacher or your child’s school principal. We will continue to communicate updates as they occur. Be well, Joe Belmonte, Superintende

Dear Tenino Families: Thurston County Superintendents met early this morning with the Thurston County Public Health and Social Services Health Officer Dr. Abdelmalek. During the past two weeks, COVID transmissions in the county have continued to rise. As a result, we will continue to postpone transitioning to an in-person hybrid instructional model. The current remote learning model will continue during this time. This current postponement will be reassessed on November 6, 2020. Importantly, if the current rates of transmission continue at the same level or rise, we will be required to maintain our current remote learning model through first semester which is January 29, 2021. I am disappointed that we will not be able to transition to more in-person learning for your children. That said, because we have been teaching small groups of high needs students in-person and safely, we are permitted to continue providing these services. Finally, we will continue to plan and prepare for hybrid instruction and will be ready to transition to in-person learning when permitted. Thank you for your support and patience as we work together as a community to focus on returning our students to school. If you or your child need support during online learning please connect with your child’s teacher or your child’s school principal. We will continue to communicate updates as they occur. Be well, Joe Belmonte, Superintendent

Dear Tenino Community: Good afternoon Tenino School District Community: As you know, we are beginning the Superintendent search process. At the School Board’s direction, a district team will be working to implement this process, which includes opportunities for stakeholder input. Given the current restrictions for in-person events we are providing input opportunities via an anonymous survey. Input will be gathered on these specific questions: What are some of the strengths/unique qualities you see in the Tenino community? What are some of the strengths/unique qualities you see in the Tenino School District? What challenges/issues do you see ahead for the school district? What are the characteristics/professional skills you feel you are particularly desirable in a superintendent? We appreciate you taking the time to participate in this very important process and look forward to hearing from you. Just click on the link below to access the survey. https://bit.ly/TSDSupSearch

Re-Opening Update Letter https://5il.co/m3kh Dear Tenino Families: Thurston County Superintendents met early this morning with the Thurston County Public Health and Social Services Health Officer Dr. Abdelmalek. In the past few weeks, COVID transmissions have risen severely, reaching record high levels. As a result, we need to postpone our in-person hybrid instructional model at Parkside and Tenino Elementary. However, because we can safely provide educational services for small groups and special programs, we are permitted to continue to serve these students at all our schools. Bottom line, we will continue with the remote learning model we began on September 9th. This trend makes working toward the increase of in-person instruction very difficult. That said, we do not want to start the hybrid model, only to shut it down again quickly. We do not want to do that to our students, parents, and staff. Therefore, we are going to delay the start of hybrid instruction until the data and direction from public health shows we can do it safely. I am extremely sorry to share this message to you. I know we were excited to see students returning to school. We were surprised to see the COVID transmission rate change so drastically. The health of our students and staff is paramount, and we know case transmissions have to be low for the in-person hybrid model to succeed. Until we are permitted to reopen, we will continue to plan and prepare for hybrid instruction and be ready to transition to in-person learning when permitted. Thank you for your support and patience as we work together as a community to focus on returning our students to school. We recognize the disruption of the school year has had a significant impact on our students, our families, and our staff. Regards, Joe Belmonte

Greetings Tenino School District Community, As the Superintendent of the Tenino School District, I have had the privilege to work with a supportive school board, a wonderful community and a professional, student-centered staff who always have the best interest of students at the top of their agendas. My experience in this district has been exceptional. It is for those reasons and others, too many to list, that I have difficulty writing this letter. After a great deal of deliberation, I have decided to close out my 39-year career in education and retire at the end of this school year. I have spoken to the school board about my decision to retire effective June 30, 2021.  It is my hope and belief that the timing of this announcement will allow the district enough time to recruit and select the best possible candidate to lead the district into the future. It has certainly been an amazing ride throughout these past seven years. The Tenino community is amazing, and I am continually impressed by how close knit and supportive people are of one another.  I believe during the past seven years the school district has grown and we have achieved much and become one of the outstanding school districts in Thurston County. Tenino may be small, but we are mighty! I would like to thank the school board who took a chance when hiring me and I will always be grateful for this amazing opportunity. I do not exaggerate when I tell you that my seven years in Tenino has been the joy of my career in education.  I am honored to have had the opportunity to lead this district and grateful to be able to close out my career in Tenino.  In some small way I hope that I have had a positive impact on our children. Warm regards, Joe Belmonte
