This week is School Counselor Week. We will show Ms. Ward our appreciation.

Friday we celebrated several students who represented HCES in the Huntsville Council of PTAs Reflections Contest!

Good luck to our own Jason Martin who will represent HCES in the county-wide spelling bee!

Please come out to Milton Frank Stadium this Saturday to cheer on our Greenpower team in the Goblin Race!

I wanted to make sure everyone is aware of a few things:

  1. Drop-off begins a 7 am every day unless there is a weather delay. Most schools do not have this option and do not accept students until 7:30 a.m. Several families take advantage of this convenience.
  2. Students are expected to be signed in if they are not in the building by 8 a.m.
  3. Carline will be significantly longer on rainy days because fewer students walk or ride the bus to school on these days. Please plan accordingly to ensure your student is on time.
  4. The afternoon carline is usually longer on Mondays and Fridays due to no tutoring on these days.
  5. If you are dropping off both elementary and middle school students, please allow the middle school students to exit the car with the elementary students. This reduces the number of stops in carline and elementary traffic being blocked by middle school traffic.
  6. The sweet spot for morning traffic seems to be between 7:15 a.m. and 7:38 a.m. There have been several days where the HCMS line is moving and we have no or minimal traffic from 7:30 a.m. until about 7:35 a.m.

It's going to be a great week!
