Weekly registration must be completed by Wednesday, 12:00p, the week prior to your child's attendance.
Huntley Park District offers the Beyond the Bell Before and After School program (formerly Extended Time Program) at School District 158 school locations. Beyond the Bell (BtB) is a quality supervised recreation program offered at the elementary schools to children who are enrolled in Kindergarten through 5th grade and currently attending D158 schools in person. Activities include homework time, gym games, outdoor play, sports, arts and crafts, and more. An afternoon snack and drink are provided daily. This program is not licensed or regulated by DCFS, and is recognized as a license-exempt program. Beyond the Bell is available for the days specifically listed and changing days of the week regularly is not an option. Spaces may be limited.
Fall registration will begin on the second Wednesday in May. Registrations will be accepted until the second Wednesday in August at which point a temporary freeze on registrations will occur so Park District staff can communicate details of attendees to the school to coordinate the transfer of care before and after school. Once school begins, and pending any remaining available spots, registration will open back up. Once school begins and registration reopens, each week, any registrations that are done by Noon on Wednesday, will be reviewed and you will be able to join the program on Monday of the following week.
The Beyond the Bell Program will take place at five school locations in School District 158 including Leggee, Chesak, Martin, Mackeben, and Conley elementary schools. Please register for the AM and/or PM times at the school your child attends in person.
The program does not meet on regular school holidays. Please see our school days out information for child care options on days when children are not in school. In addition, if school is cancelled for snow, Beyond the Bell is also cancelled and the day will be included as a make-up at the end of the school year. Should there be a late start called for any school, morning BtB will be cancelled.
