Huntley Project Schools
Welcome back to school!
We are excited for the start of the 14-15 school year and are looking forward to great things. Open house is scheduled for Monday Aug 25th, 5pm – 7 pm. All teachers will be in their classrooms and I hope you take advantage of this opportunity to stop by and meet your child's teachers. The first day of school is Tuesday, Aug 26th.
There are a couple of changes that I want everyone to be aware of that were made to help close a general fund budget gap. These changes include:
-There will be no more hard copy boxholders mailed out. Instead the boxholder will be online and it will be e-mailed if you make that request to Mr. Wandle. Activity schedules will be available online.
-High School students will be required to pay a $50 fee per activity. There is a $200 per family limit which includes all student activity fees in the family, regardless of age. Adult activity fees do not count toward this limit.
The buses will pick up and drop off at the same time every day except for Friday early out. On Wednesdays only, the start of class will be a little later, at 8:35, to allow for team meetings. Breakfast and supervision will be available until class starts.
One last item. Once again we are short some regular route drivers. This a tough job and not everyone is cut out to be a driver, but without enough drivers we have a hard time running the school. A continued shortage will negatively affect routes and activity trips at some point in the future. If you know of anyone who has what it takes to be a driver please send them to me. We will train if needed.
If you have any questions or concerns about school please contact the office where your child attends, or you can contact the central office.

Total 2013-2014 enrollment for Huntley Project Schools is 791 students. The high school currently has 251 students, making Huntley Project a Class B school in the Montana High School Association. Junior high enrollment (grades 7 and 8) is 130, and the elementary school (K - 6) has a student population of 410 children.
The name ‘Huntley Project’ is short for Huntley Irrigation Project, which was the second U.S.. Bureau of Reclamation irrigation project. The area was part of the Crow Indian Reservation from 1874 to 1904 when the government purchased the 35,000 acres, stretching across 27 miles from Huntley, east to the Little Bull Mountains.
