A message from Mr. Killingbeck....

The Hemlock Public School District believes in partnering with families and the community. Communication, with any relationship, is crucial and it is essential to our vision and mission to keep our district informed.

Board of Education President Ellison, said, “In today’s fast-paced world, there are so many options for communication that it’s important to know which method suits our students and parents best and cater to their needs.”

The school district in an effort to enhance and improve communication has worked to update the school website and create a downloadable Hemlock Huskie App. Please click on the link for step by step directions at

These efforts have helped coordinate our communication and provide instant access to parents to relevant information such as our new Huskie Hub to keep students and teachers connected.

Superintendent Don Killingbeck said, “Improving our digital footprint and enhancing our communication platform is just another example of Hemlock Public School Districts’ commitment to our families and community.”

We are Huskies!

You are cordially invited to the Q and U wedding.....

Remember Local Businesses

Our local businesses often help us with many things throughout the year. They donate their time and money to many sports teams (youth through high school age), drama clubs, and robotics teams just to name a few. Don't forget about them during this time. Many of them are closed now due to the "Stay at Home" order from Governor Whitmer, but many of our local restaurants are still open for take-out/delivery.
