Tenaha ISD is proud to support the "Well-Dressed Wednesday" movement that has started across some East Texas schools recently!! This is a fun opportunity for students and staff alike to "dress in their best" each Wednesday in an effort to educate our youth about professional dress and demonstrate how looking your best, can make you not only FEEL your best...but DO your best as well... plus, we can have a little FUN while doing it too!! We encourage all of our Tigers to join us each Wednesday! Looking SHARP Tenaha Middle School Staff!!

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. Our goal is to provide quality, educational opportunities to our students in a safe environment.
Tiger Transportation Update: As we continue to update our fleet of buses, you may notice the others being moved to storage. These older buses will be stored and used for parts when the need for repairs and maintenance arises. Let's GO Tigers!!!
A Note from Mrs. Ward: "We were so excited to welcome all of our returning and new students back to TES. I was impressed watching your children get "right back into the swing of things"! BEGINNING TOMORROW: Elementary parents will be asked to drop their students off with Mrs. Stacie at the gate. She will make sure they get safely inside. If you need something from the office, you are welcome to come in the first set of doors. Parents will not be allowed in the building beyond the lobby area without a scheduled conference, as we closely follow our safety protocols daily. Thank you for entrusting your children with us. It's a GREAT day to be a TIGER!
WOW!!! Thank you for a GREAT FIRST DAY TIGERS!! Just a quick note from Mrs. Ward, Mr. Thompson and Mr. Cloudy: "We had a very smooth and successful first day back! It was great to see all of the bright and smiling faces back in the halls again. Remember our theme for the school year: H.A.P.P.Y Have A Positive Productive Year!" Once again, thank you for your cooperation and patience as schedules are adjusted where needed and complying with our new policy updates. Our goal is to make Tenaha ISD a place you are proud to call home! See you tomorrow!

Caution TigerNation! As construction projects begin soon, we ask that you "excuse our mess" and exercise additional caution as heavy machinery and possible barricades will be present around the district. As projects progress, we will keep you informed of any changes in traffic patterns or temporary closures if necessary. Thank you for your patience and caution as we work to make improvements!!
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 email@example.com Please see the official media release at the link below: https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/3146/TENAHAISD/2336190/CEP_Media_Release.pdf
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!
