Information for Parents
We love having family and friends cheer us on at the competitions! Please join us for all our competitions!
General Etiquette at Competitions
Spectator Ticket Price: $10; Parking is free.
Parking - See the map at school_aerial_map_tmi.pdf (editmysite.com)
Checking out students - If you would like to check your student out to ride home with you after awards is over, please do so at our buses. They must check out with our chaperone coordinator, Mrs. Beumer or her designee. The stadium can be a very chaotic/crowded place after awards. Please do not just "take your student" as we are accountable for every student at the event and can't leave until we know where every student is. It can put us very behind schedule if we have to track down where students are. This is for their safety.

Football Playoffs - Doubtful
I may have been a little ambitious in our playoff assessment last week. After last Friday's loss to Sparkman, I believe our playoff chances took a big hit and it's now unlikely we will be in the playoffs. The last region game is against Austin this Friday - they are the current first place team in our area.
October 28th - Last regular season game @Hazel Green High School.
November 1 - London Payment #1 Due!!
November 2 - Halloween Party after school - organized by our student social chairs.
November 3 - Fall Concert! Band Booster Fee Payment #3 Due - remaining balance.
November 11 - Veteran's Day Parade
Please check out our Huntsville High School Band store! We have added new items with our updated logo.
