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 community and school transmission.
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 masking as appropriate, classes may be staggered by 30 minutes to allow for proper ventilation and air turnover as students transition from class to class.
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:
Volunteers will be permitted on a building by building basis and appointments will be required. Decisions to allow volunteers will be made by building principals, in accordance with local public health data and the most up to date CDC, IDPH and MCHD guidance. All volunteers and visitors who enter our buildings will be required to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.
