Principal Message:

In this Husky Strong message you will find information on HHS construction and school events.


Parents & Students,

Have you driven by HHS lately? The foundations have been poured for our new athletic area and the basement walls will be poured next week. Soon we will be switching parking lots so construction crews can start phase 2, the main part of our new building. When phase 2 starts, the main parking lot in front of HHS will be turned over to the construction company.  This will leave us with a small section of parking on the west end of our parking lot; basically, only a portion of our current drivers education range will remain open for use.  Parents and students need to mentally prepare for a new parent drop off area and fewer available parking stalls. Fewer stalls will mean some restricted parking.  The building engineers are drafting maps of the revised parking and drop off areas so we can show you pictures and provide instructions for parents and students. We have paved a new parking lot with 410 stalls where the baseball field used to be. The road in and out of this lot is one way and will require patience from all who enter and exit. This one way road will most likely add about 20 minutes to the commute in and out of Hillcrest. Please be courteous and cautious as we all navigate these changes. On the positive side, the sacrifice and inconvenience over the next two years will deliver a beautiful new building with plenty of parking.
