Updated 7/31/2020 8:03 PM

Huntley Unit District 158 announced that they have made the difficult decision to revise their initial plans and begin school in the fall in a modified remote learning model for all students.

Please note the following details:


• All students will begin the school year in remote learning

• The first day of student remote attendance will be Friday, Aug. 21, 2020

• This initial remote period will tentatively last through at least October 16, 2020, continuing indefinitely until conditions dictate it is safe to return.

• All teachers able will teach from school classrooms with full access to teaching resources and technology.

• A task force comprising members of District administration and representatives of the teachers' union is working to craft plans for small groups to rotate in for limited in-person experiences throughout the remote period.

• Small groups will be limited to six or fewer and will prioritize students with special service needs. Details on small-group opportunities will be forthcoming.

• Conditions will be continually evaluated for the possibility of increased in-person experiences.
