The Tenino School District Board of Directors began an executive search in December to find a successor to replace Superintendent Joe Belmonte who will retire at the end of June. The search attracted 23 applicants and, after screening and interviews, the Board voted at a special meeting on February 11, 2021 to offer the position to Clint Endicott, Executive Director of K-12 Leadership and Accountability for the Yakima School District, pending mutual agreement on an employment contract. Mr. Endicott has had a variety of experiences in his education career. His training includes Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees as well as specific training in administration and certification in Washington as both a principal and superintendent. He has served as a math teacher at the high school level and in alternative school settings, including service at nearby Maple Lane School in Rochester. Prior to his current district role, he served as a high school principal and assistant principal in Yakima. He brings with him a broad range of successful school and district experience, including leadership of instructional improvement initiatives and facility upgrades. He is excited to bring his family to the Tenino area and looks forward to beginning transition activities this winter and spring.

Dear Parkside Elementary & Tenino Elementary Parents/Guardians: For those of you who indicated your student would be participating in our hybrid learning program starting this coming Monday, February 8th, and also indicated that your student was planning to ride a school bus, our bus route information for Groups A and B are now posted on the transportation page of the district's website at https://5il.co/pebe so you can help prepare your student for Monday. Please review this route information to identify the bus stop closest to your address for both the a.m. and p.m. routes for the group your student has been assigned. As a reminder, Group A students will attend school in person on Mondays and Thursdays. Group B students will attend on Tuesdays and Fridays. For any students with special needs that have already been attending classes in person with us, those attendance schedules and bus rides remain unchanged unless the school contacted you individually to communicate any changes for your child. If you have any transportation-related questions next week, please contact our transportation office at 360-339-4370. Thank you
