It's hard to believe that the end of the school year is not only in sight, but rapidly approaching. It's a good time for us to share some reminders and information with you:
Graduation for the Class of 2019
We will celebrate graduation for members of the Huntley High School Class of 2019 on May 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the NIU Convocation Center. Full information about the ceremony, other days of celebration, and other information for graduating seniors and their families has been centralized at www.district158.org/hhs/graduation.
Promotion ceremonies for current 8th graders will be held May 29 (Heineman) and May 30 (Marlowe). Both ceremonies will begin at 7:00 p.m. at Huntley High School.
The high school and middle school ceremonies will be livestreamed. Please check our website closer to those dates for more details on viewing the ceremony remotely.
May 30 Last Day of School for 2018-19 School Year
Because the District has had four school cancellations due to severe weather, May 30 is the tentative last day of school for the 2018-19 school year. Please note that we are closed May 27 for Memorial Day.
Kindergarten Registration Events
Families with children slated to enter Kindergarten in 2019-20 are strongly encouraged to register during our Kindergarten Registration events scheduled for June 4, 5, and 7. Families should attend the event at their school to enjoy the opportunity to tour, meet staff and PTA members, practice getting on and off the bus, and more. Those who cannot attend may complete registration at the District Office during normal business hours over summer.
Seniors' Lunch Account Balances
Families of graduating seniors: Please see the below procedures for money left on a graduating seniors’ lunch accounts.
- If the balance is under $5.00 the student will need to pick up the balance from the cafeteria prior to their last day of school. (This year it will be May 6, 7, & 8th)
- If the balance is over $5.00 and the senior has a sibling/s in the district, the money is transferred to the oldest sibling’s account after the last day of school.
- If the balance is over $5.00 and the senior has no sibling in the district, the money is refunded to the parent on student account records, after the last day of school. (This can take up to 6 weeks)
- Please note: If you have auto replenish set for MySchoolBucks, please disable this function or your account will continue to replenish below the level you requested.
Let's finish this year safe and strong!
