The Week of September 7th - 11th

Student Drop-Off Times

Next week begins our first week with all students. Just a reminder, students are not to be dropped off before 7:25 a.m. at Hemlock Elementary and 7:30 a.m. at K.C. Ling. If you are dropping students off in the line-up, please have them exit your vehicle on the passenger side along the sidewalk. If your child needs assistance, please park in the parking lot and walk them across to keep the flow of traffic moving steadily. Children should not walk from the parking lot to the sidewalk unattended.

As always, thank you for all your support!

Important Changes to Food Service

Every student enrolled in both virtual and face-to-face learning will now enjoy FREE breakfast and lunch regardless of income. Please remember to still fill out and turn in the free/reduced meal applications that were in the welcome back packets. These apps are also located in all school offices or online at Other district programs such as, Title 1 and 31A, are in association with meal benefits so this is very important to do.

Our menus are found online at and paper copies are available in all school offices. You can find the online menus under the dining icon for each building site.

The Elementary and Ling students that are on campus choose whether they want a lunch and breakfast daily on a live Google document every morning with their teacher. At this time they also have the option to let their teacher know if they want to take home a breakfast and lunch for their virtual day. We then pass those meals out at the end of the day for them to take home. Middle and High School students come down to the cafeteria daily to get their meals. They also let their homeroom teacher know if they want to pick up meals at the end of the day for their remote learning.

Virtual students now have this option for their remote learning: Call (989)642-4700 or email by 9:00am on Wednesdays. Pick up for virtual meals will be Thursdays from 2:45pm-4:00pm. These meals will be distributed at Hemlock Middle School at door #29 in the side parking lot. When requesting meals please leave your last name and how many students you have in your household so when you pull up we will have your meals ready and labeled.

If you have any questions please feel free to email me at: or call (989)642-4700.

NWEA Testing

Over the course of the next three weeks, all of our students will be participating in NWEA testing. The results of these tests allow us to provide instruction that is tailored to student achievement data. These test results also help us measure your student’s academic growth throughout the school year as they are administered three times each year (Fall, Winter, Spring). If you have opted for the virtual-only option for the beginning of the school year, the classroom teacher will be contacting you to schedule a testing time for your child to be assessed.

If you have any questions or would like more information about the NWEA tests, please feel free to contact Mrs. Gensch.
