Running with the Angels

Many of you may already know, but it is with a heavy heart that we share the news that the Huskie Pack lost one of its most beloved. Bill Agresta was a beloved teacher, coach, friend, and champion of students. He now runs with the Angels.

He was an enduring fixture at our high school long after his retirement from teaching, where he could be often found collecting and organizing cans for student scholarship funds that he worked to generate and distribute annually. They don't make them like Bill anymore, he was surely a one of a kind and will be missed by all that knew him.

20-21 School Year Update

At Hemlock Public School District, among the many things we have learned over the course of the last few months: we know how to hit a curveball. The world does not stop for anyone. Despite our face-to-face instruction being shut down this spring, we have continued to provide remote learning opportunities for our students.


Now, as we begin looking forward to resuming school in the fall, we are preparing for three different models of instruction this next school year.


The first model, "Normal," would be a start to the school year as we are accustomed to. This would be all students and staff onsite for a regular school day. Understand--normal doesn't mean the same; we would have additional procedures and protocols in place to keep students and staff safe.


The second model, "Remote," would be somewhat similar to our situation this spring, but with increased rigor and expectations very similar to our "normal" face-to-face instruction. Rest assured, this doesn't mean students would sit online in virtual classrooms all day, switching hour by hour as they navigate through the day. We would work to provide our staff with additional training and support, tools, and schedules to improve our current remote model.


The third model, "Hybrid," would be a combination of our normal face-to-face instruction and a remote learning model. This model would have staff report daily, and students rotate between reporting to school and learning remotely. This rotation could be by the week or certain days of the week that don't require students to report having additional instruction delivered remotely. This model would have only 50% of our student body on campus at a time.


No matter the model, Hemlock Public School District will be here to serve students and families, providing the highest quality education possible.

Athletics Update

As school leaders, we get questions all the time, and more and more we are getting asked, “What is going to happen with sports?”


Well, there is no easy answer, but we are planning for a couple of different scenarios.


First: “Normal” - This would be a return to what we are used to and already are accustomed to delivering to our students and the Hemlock Huskie fans. This will eventually happen, but perhaps not this fall.


Second, “Canceled”- This would be a disappointment, but something we dealt with this past spring. Not likely to happen.


Third, “No spectators” - It is difficult to imagine a stadium or gym with athletes competing but without fans cheering them on, but we are prepared. We have outfitted our fall venues with Wi-fi and have the same broadcasting camera system that we have in our high school gymnasium being installed at our football and soccer field. This will allow fans to tune in and cheer the Huskies on via the internet.


Fourth, “Hybrid” - this model may involve some combination of normal, cancel/abbreviated schedule, limited spectators, limited travel, or limited individual sports/venues.

No matter what happens, the Hemlock Huskies will be ready to compete and will be prepared for whatever else comes our way. Our focus will be on keeping our students, families, and staff safe and healthy.


As we prepare for the next athletic season and school year, we are working to resolve major school funding issues that are anticipated to impact the upcoming school year.


We are working to protect our students’ learning and extracurricular opportunities as much as possible from our budget woes. In keeping that in mind, we have started by reducing and reorganizing our athletic department administrative team for next year.
