What you need to know about HCE Buses....

Onslow County Schools is currently experiencing bus driver shortages and they affect us here at Hunters Creek Elementary. We do not handle any bus changes or delays here at the school. This is handled by the bus garage. They are super at posting very early each morning any bus changes and delays and also posting any updates throughout the day.

Please check this link out, which is updated regularly, for bus updates/changes: BUS UPDATES

Additionally, parents have the option of receiving notifications and checking out any updates on the OCS EDULOG Parent Portal App. Check it out here. EDULOG

What you need to know about school fees......

Great news! The only school fee for HCE this year is the Technology Fee, which covers the cost of your child's computer repairs and upkeep.

$25 Lap top

Unpaid fees will follow your child from school to school. Unpaid fees will prevent your child from attending prom and from graduating from high school.

It is far easier to pay each year than let the accumulate for 13 years (K-12).

If you are unable to pay all at once, you may also make payments. You can send in payments with your child and their teacher will provide a receipt (be sure to keep this receipt). Please let the teacher know it is for Student Fees.

If you have any questions, please contact our Treasurer/Secretary, Francine at 910-353-4443 ext 78007.

You may also pay online at School Cash Online

HCES is a Science, Technology, Engineering & Math School (Stem), grades PreK-5th grade
