Collection of Hurricane Relief Items
Hunter Huss High School will be collecting hurricane relief items for victims of Hurricane Harvey. Collections will be made September 11 to September 22. There will be collection boxes in first period classes for students and in the lobby area for our local community to donate. Hunter Huss will be collecting specifically school supplies, baby supplies and pet supplies. Even the smallest donations matter!
Student Car Rider Drop Off
Students who are car riders should be dropped off at the back of the front parking lot at the blue picnic tables, near the A hall entrance. Students should not be dropped off on Edgefield Road beside the school; this is dangerous for students and holds up traffic. Students will not be permitted to enter or exit at the front entrance during school start or dismissal. The traffic pattern is listed below for guidance.
Student's last name determines their counselor. See the list below and the email address for each counselor. Call 704-866-6610 to speak to a counselor or to schedule an appointment with a counselor.
