Hemlock & K.C. Ling Elementary Newsletter
Weekly Update From Mr. Killingbeck
This week is our 31st week for the 2020-2021 school year, and we continue to pull the sled together. The whole Huskie Pack has worked together to make this school year possible for our students.
We continue to navigate COVID-19 and the pandemic together, following the Saginaw County Health Department's guidance. The safety and well-being of our students and team are our number 1 priority as we work to provide the best opportunities for children.
Our 2021-2022 calendar has been approved and will be available on our website at hemlockps.com, under the menu. For the most part, it mirrors our 2020-2021 school year calendar.
We have also formally accepted the resignation of the Hemlock Middle School teacher that was under investigation for unprofessional behavior. Our district will continue to work and safeguard our students and promote a professional and appropriate learning environment for all.
As I mentioned in previous updates, we know that some students need to catch up academically. With that in mind, we are developing a robust learning program offering for our students and families to help all children achieve at their personal best.
At this time, we do have some COVID-19 cases to report; click here to review our COVID-19 Dashboard with data updates in real-time. This link brings pertinent information together into one easy-to-access place. These recent cases occurred over our spring break; having a remote day on Tuesday really helped bring some of these cases to the surface before our students and staff returned to school.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let me know.
All the best,
Reading Month 2021
