ATTENTION TigerNation: The safety and security of our students and staff are our number one priority at Tenaha ISD. Unfortunately, the acts of mass violence you see and hear about around the country force us to evaluate and update our policies frequently. However, we want you to know that we do not take this responsibility lightly and we sincerely thank you for entrusting your children with us each day. The following updates regarding Parent/Guardian Conferences will be effective immediately: All parent/guardian conferences must be scheduled between the hours of 8:00am - 10:00am or 2:00pm-3:00pm . These conferences should be scheduled through each campus office in advance. All visitors will be notified at the time of scheduling that they will be asked to submit to a voluntary security screening conducted by Officer Jeter prior to being allowed entry beyond the campus lobby. In the event the visitor does not comply with this screening, entry will be denied. To schedule a conference, please call: High School or Middle School: 936-248-5000 ext:501 Elementary School: 936-248-5000 ext:301 Again, thank you for your cooperation and attention to this matter.

Tenaha ISD announced today that it will continue its policy to operate the Community Eligibility Program (CEP) under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2022-2023 school year. Schools qualifying to operate CEP, serve breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals. For more information, please contact: Tenaha ISD Melanie Duncan Director of Nutrition 138 College Street Tenaha, TX 75974 936-248-5000 ext. 505 Please see the official media release at the link below:

Tenaha ISD Continues CEP Program for 22-23 School Year
Throughout the summer, facility updates have been in progress. These updates will continue throughout the school year, along with some exciting new additions to the community and district as well. The approval and plans for three housing projects are in progress currently. These homes will offer employees who have relocated their families an opportunity to rent housing from the district beginning as early July 2023. Two of the three homes are already under contract, leaving one available at this time. In addition to the housing project, the district has approved the construction of a new Administration Building and Boardroom. This new facility will be located across the street from the current building facing the high school parking lot. Elevations are currently being determined and the plans are being drawn up for it to reflect the same design as the facade of Tenaha High School. This improvement will allow the oldest facility in the district, the current location of our daycare and PK3 classroom, to be removed permanently. Once renovated and configured to suit their needs, Daycare and PK3, will move to the current Administration building. This project is scheduled to be completed in July of 2023. We are excited for the updates and changes taking place in the district!

Over the summer, Tenaha ISD has been implementing steps to improve communication with stakeholders on all occasions. We feel it is imperative to keep our students, families, staff and employees, board members, and community informed with accurate, timely information in the most efficient manner possible. After completing an analysis of our current systems of communication, Tenaha ISD was please to make the following updates: *Streamline Communication with new web partner, Apptegy Apptegy was appealing to our district for several reasons. We felt the appearance and structure of their web platform was user friendly and would allow our district to share positive, engaging and useful information with our stakeholders. They also pair their intuitive web platform with a modern, yet simplified mobile app that will allow you to easily access the information that is most important: like lunch menus, sports scores and event schedules, and the district's latest news and announcements right at your fingertips. Finally, the most attractive and beneficial piece of the Apptegy suite is the Alert System. This is a system that integrates with the website and app that will allow Tenaha ISD to contact students, parents/guardians, and our staff with important alerts via text message and/or push notification, email, and/or voice call. TISD will utilize this system to notify you of information like time changes, school weather related information, early releases, bus route changes, daily attendance alerts, emergency information and much more. In an effort to maximize this system and keep the channels of communication as open as possible between the district and our stakeholders, we ask that you complete the registration packets sent home in the first week of school carefully and completely. Please make sure all contact information is complete and return to the campus office as soon as possible. As a part of our safety protocol, we will conduct frequent audits of this contact information to make sure it stays as up to date as possible in the event we need to use the alert system. As a part of our Digital Art & Media and Graphic Design endorsement, students will be assisting in the update, re-design, and maintenance of the website. We encourage you to continue to check back as progress is made to our new look!! Make sure you download the new app; just search Tenaha Schools and download. You will not need a login to access any information on the app, except for parent portal. Instructions for parent portal can be found on the website under Parent/Student Resources. Let's make it a great year Tiger Nation!!

WOW!! Tenaha and Shelby never cease to amaze us with your generosity! Because of you, the Klayton Lewis Family Fundraiser held at Tenaha ISD today was a tremendous success.

Attention TigerNation! We are just a few short days away from beginning our new school year! Your administrators, faculty and staff have worked and prepared all summer to offer you the best experience possible. As you and your families prepare to join us next week, there are a few updates to our cell phone, dress code and discipline policy that we would like you to be aware of: Cell Phone Policy: Please understand that we are not opposed to students having cell phones on campus. However, our job is to educate and care for our students with minimal distractions. When a student brings a cell phone or any other personal belonging on campus that isn't required for educational purposes, that becomes the responsibility of the student and their family. BEGINNING IMMEDIATELY: *Students in grades 6-12 will be required to put all phones (silenced) in pocket charts located near the front of the classroom during class. If the student does not follow policy or comply, the phone will be taken to the office with a discipline referral where it can be picked up at the end of the day for $15. The STUDENT may pay the $15 for the first infraction, but any additional infraction would require contact of the parent/guardian to pick up the device and pay the infraction fee of $15. Students may have their phones during passing periods and at lunch. *ALL elementary students (PK-5) must place cell phones into the locked box in their 1st period teacher's room. If the student does not comply, the teacher will turn the cell phone into the office and the parent/guardian must pick it up at the end of the day after paying a fee of $15. Dress Code Policy Updates: The Student Dress Code policy is consistent with the policy from 2021-2022 with the following revision to Hair and Head Coverings: ***CAPS, HATS, HOODS, or HEAD COVERINGS are NOT PERMITTED INSIDE THE BUILDINGS. * Hair shall be groomed to stay out of the student's eyes. * Symbols, words, or slogans cut into the hair are not permitted. * Any hairstyle deemed by the campus administration as being distracting is not permitted. *Dress Code violations will be handled by our staff and administrators stationed at the entrance points each morning. If a student is in violation, they will be sent to the office immediately to change. Phone calls home will be made when needed. Thank you for your attention to these new policies; we strive to make the experience at Tenaha ISD positive, impactful, safe and FUN!

Tenaha ISD Board of Trustees Approves Lower Tax Rate - August 2, 2022, Tenaha, TX In a noon meeting of the Tenaha Independent School District Board of Trustees, a proposed tax rate was approved at the rate of $ 1.0922. This is less than last year by a deficit of $0.01719. Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Don Fallin says, "Any time we are in a position to lower the tax rate, we will most definitely do so. Due to our taxable value increasing this year, we were able to propose and approve this decrease." This decrease began several years ago with the new school bond prior to 2008 when the tax rate was $1.50 per $100 of value. Since that time, several calculations and factors have created changes in the tax rate. Tenaha ISD begins the school year with a full staff, multiple projects in the works including building, maintenance and operations and renewed expectations for all involved. The new school year is slated to begin Wednesday, August 10th.
