The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended the period of free meal service for all students ages 18 and younger regardless of income through the 2021-22 school year. Meals will be free for all students in Huntley 158. Lunch procedures at the elementary and secondary level will be conducted with appropriate mitigations based on levels of risk.
Free breakfast meals will also be served at the middle school and high school level daily. Per updated ISBE guidance released on August 3, 2021, we are no longer able to send breakfast meals home with elementary students. Additional information about food service can be found on our website here.
Specials Classes: (Band, Choir, Physical Education, etc.)
Band and choir classes will be held in an in-person learning environment with common sense mitigation measures in place. In addition to physical distancing and potential masking, classes may be staggered by 30 minutes to allow for proper ventilation and air turnover as students transition from class to class.
Physical education classes may be impacted by levels of COVID-19 risk in our schools and community. Students at the secondary level will resume changing into P.E. uniforms for P.E. class. Classes will be held outdoors as frequently as possible, weather permitting. These procedures will be subject to change depending upon the status of response metrics and level of COVID-19 risk, as determined in collaboration with the McHenry County Department of Health.
Water fountains will continue to be turned off in our buildings as a safety precaution. However, bottle filling stations have been and will continue to be added across the district to provide contactless access to water. Students are responsible for bringing their own water bottles.
Volunteers & Visitors:
We are eager to welcome back our parents and volunteers to enrich our students’ classroom experience while maintaining a safe in-person learning environment for all of our students, staff and community members. All volunteers should review and be aware of these safety considerations before entering Huntley 158 buildings.
