For example, do you wish you could just click on a link to see the safety patrol schedule?  Or do you want to see the notes from the last counseling coffee that was attended by more than 100 parents?  This and other information is all here.  Here is a sampling of what you can find.  Please remember to log in to see the full list. Click on the links to see more!

Parents: Link School Calendar to Your Devices

Parents of Hunter students can now link the school's calendar to their personal devices like smartphones and tablets. The electronic HCHS Calendar is part of the school's website. You can also always find it here. But now you can have it with you wherever you go. The PTA webmasters suggest that you subscribe to the calendar rather than importing it. (A full pdf version can also be downloaded here.)
