School Principal

Jenna Vial


I am truly honored to serve as the Principal for Hammond Eastside Magnet Lower. Everyday, I look forward to the opportunity to lead our school filled with amazing students and an extremely dedicated staff. 

I have 24 years of being an educator in Tangipahoa Parish School System. I have had the chance to teach, supervise student teachers, work as an administrator assistant, curriculum facilitator & assistant principal. As principal at HEML, I will bring all these experiences with me when partnering with our teachers, faculty, parents and families. I believe that all students can achieve their goals through hard work and perseverance. Together we will be able to ensure the success of all students at our school. 

I welcome everyone to another exciting year of learning at Hammond Eastside Magnet Lower. Thank you for your involvement, support, and cooperation. I believe when we work together, we ensure your child is getting the most of their elementary education experience here at HEML.

Please feel free to contact me at or by phone at (985) 474-8661 any time if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.
