A Message from our Principal

At Tenino High School, the safety and security of our students is our highest priority. Thanks to the generous passage of the recent capital levy by Tenino’s citizens, Tenino High School is undergoing some major security upgrades at this time.

Upgraded Camera System

Our array of security cameras is being both increased and modernized. This change will benefit safety by greatly decreasing the number of areas in the building without coverage, providing clearer, full color images, and making video images easier to access when they are needed.

External Door Lock Automation

We are fitting all of the external doors of Tenino High School with electronic locks that will only open with a proximity card assigned to staff. The doors can lock and unlock as needed, and office staff will be automatically notified if any door is propped open or is ajar.

Complete Internal Door Re-Key

Over the course of time, many keys have been lost or loaned and not returned. We are upgrading all internal doors with new cores and keys to re-establish the full security of the building.

Thank you again, Tenino, for helping us keep our students safe and secure!
