It’s that time of year again! Please take a moment to review the reminders and important information for the 2023-24 school year below as you and your family begin preparing for our return to school in Huntley 158.
Bus Transportation Selection for the 2023-2024 School Year
Transportation selection was part of the 2023-24 registration process. If you have not yet registered your child for the upcoming school year, please log into PowerSchool as soon as possible. For more information about registration, visit the Huntley 158 Registration Portal.
Bus routes will be available to view starting July 27, 2023 through PowerSchool. Please continue to check route information as it will change as more students register. No changes will be made to routes from August 9, 2023 until September 4, 2023 in order to ensure consistent route assignments.
All babysitting forms need to be filled out and emailed to [email protected] no later than July 14, 2023. Please remember that this form needs to be filled out EVERY YEAR regardless if the sitter information has not changed from the previous year. Also, keep in mind that sitter information needs to be 5 days a week at the same location. Morning (AM) and afternoon (PM) can be listed at different locations (i.e. morning pick up can take place at home and afternoon drop off can take place at a designated sitter location or vice versa).
Health Services Forms Required for First Day of School
As we approach the start of the 2023-24 school year, we’d like to remind you that any student entering Kindergarten, 2nd, 6th, 9th, or 12th grade must submit required health documents, as required by Illinois School Code and Huntley 158’s school policy in order for a student to attend school.
Families will need to provide the following documentation for their student by the first day of student attendance on Wednesday, August 16, 2023. Huntley 158 has a first day exclusion policy, which means that students must be excluded from school if they have not provided the necessary physical and immunization documentation to our health services offices. If you feel you have an extenuating circumstance that will prevent you from meeting that deadline, please reach out to your building nurse to discuss possible options as soon as possible.
- Kindergarten Students: Physical exam, up to date immunizations, dental exam, and eye exam
- Second Grade Students: Dental exam
- Sixth Grade Students: Physical exam, up to date immunizations, and dental exam

Complimentary back-to-school physicals are available through Village Medical in Huntley, IL every Wednesday through July 26. To learn more about this opportunity, visit VillageMedical.com.
