A Note From the Principal....
Please try to avoid sending food that needs to be heated at school in your child's lunch. Students have such a short amount of time to eat with the current schedule that it makes it difficult for them to finish when they have to spend time heating up their food. We appreciate your cooperation.

Sinking Fund Information
What is a sinking fund? Under Michigan law, a school may collect taxes for a "sinking fund" that can be used for repairs, renovations, and technology (as well as other construction).
How will this impact Hemlock Public School District? If approved, these funds will help the district maintain our facilities inside and out with things like:
- Safety, e.g., service drive to K.C. Ling, additional security cameras, etc.
- Efficiency, replaces the single pane windows from 1959 at the high school, lighting, and more).
- Curriculum, develop/enhance Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) areas.
- Technology, maintaining and improving infrastructure and systems.
- 21st Century Media Center/Library at our high school.
- Fitness Area, provide students with an updated fitness area like those found in Frankenmuth, St. Charles, and other area schools.
- Maintenance, with items like - roofs, boilers, HVAC, equipment, etc.
If approved, it will cost the average homeowner with a $150k home ($75k SEV) $112.50 annually or less than $10 a month. This will generate approximately $500k toward maintaining and improving the school district’s facilities and curriculum.
We are hosting five public meetings to help people get information about the November 7th ballot proposal. Every meeting will run for approximately 25 minutes and will be followed by an optional tour of the facility the meeting is being held at.
