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!

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!

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 County...you 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. Thank you to everyone who contributed in any way: from donation of items, time, purchasing a plate, making a monetary donation to the family...because of this amazing community we will be able to bless this precious family with an offering that will hopefully be helpful during such a difficult time. Please continue to lift this family and our Tiger family up in prayer as we begin this school year missing a very special young man. Thank you, again!
