Welcome back, Hemmerling Parents and Students!
August 07, 2020
Dear Hemmerling Elementary School Families,
It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I welcome all of our Marvelous Mustangs to the 2020-2021 school year! Following the orders of Governor Newson and the COVID-19 safety guidelines, the first phase of our school district’s reopening plan will be through a 100% virtual distance learning model. Students are scheduled to start school virtually on Monday, August 17, 2020. While we are sad to not be able to welcome our Marvelous Mustangs personally, we look forward to providing them with the highest quality virtual education they all deserve.
Our marvelous Hemmerling educators have been eagerly and diligently preparing for the return of our students. They have been engaged in professional development and collaboration to keep their skills honed and prepare for highly engaging and rigorous virtual teaching.  Our Hemmerling teachers are excited and ready to start their virtual Google classrooms and parents will be able to meet the teacher virtually. Meanwhile, please note the following important announcements:
