Hemlock Elementary

Hemlock's 3 B's

We have three basic rules we all live by at Hemlock:

Be Safe

Be Respectful

Be Responsible

We encourage parents to reinforce and support these rules at home.

Our Mission

The mission of Hemlock Elementary School, where students thrive and develop lifelong, meaningful connections, is to empower every student to reach his or her highest potential academically, socially, and physically by providing challenging, standards-based programs within a safe, encouraging and diverse community.

May is Mental Health Month. The intent of this observance is to bring awareness to growing mental health needs within our culture, and to fight the stigma associated with mental illness.  The Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” has brought national and local attention to issues related to mental illness and suicide.  Please take an opportunity to discuss the attached talking points with your children.  We need to work together to spread the message to our children that help is always available.

Dear Parents,

We can never be too careful when it comes to protecting our children.  A dangerous “game” surfaced on social media a while back, particularly with students in other countries. The game is being talked about by student in our schools. 

The “Blue Whale Challenge” app involves the enticement of students into risky behavior that could result in the final challenge of taking one’s life. While we do not know of any VUSD students who are playing it, we want to make sure that you are aware of it.

Evidently, it has been removed from the app store.  We are appreciative of members of the community who brought this to our attention; our children benefit when we work together to protect them.

Please take a few moments to watch this video and share it. Our friends with Autism, like all people, need support and understanding. Helping students understand Autism is a great place to start.
