2nd Grade Teacher Passes Following Long Battle With Cancer
Long-time Hamilton Local teacher, Renee Hocking passed away on Thursday, October 18, 2018. She spent nearly two decades positively impacting hundreds of students and families in our community, most recently as a 2nd grade teacher in Hamilton Elementary School, and she will be missed by many who knew her.

Tomorrow, we will be making grief resources available to her students and their families, as well as to our employees by way of our district guidance counselors, school psychologists, and special support staff. Grief professionals from Ohio Health will also be available for support.

There are many grief resources also available online, including this one from the National Association of School Psychologists.

If your child is showing signs of grieving the loss of Mrs. Hocking, you may contact our Hamilton Elementary School guidance counselor, Collett Hayes by email at chayes@hlsd.org or by phone at 614-491-8044 ext. 1317.

Crisis Management Resources are also available on our district website.

You can also get more grief resources from OhioHealth by clicking the attachement below.
