Leggee Elementary
at a glance...

Schools in District 158 have been named after people who have had a major influence on the education of our children. Katherine Leggee was an educator for 36 years, with the last 23 years in Huntley.  She retired from teaching in June of 1993.  
 
Besides her teaching, Kathy Leggee was best known for her work in presenting the annual 3rd Grade Abraham Lincoln play.  Sandy Schultz, a 3rd grade teacher at Leggee Elementary, had the honor to work with Mrs. Leggee and stated that there “truly is no other person more deserving,” to have the building named after.  Kathy Leggee had a major influence not only on the children whom she taught, but also the teachers that she worked with. If you come to any of the many wonderful events that celebrate the students’ achievements here at Leggee Elementary,  you are bound to meet Mr. Leggee who is the building’s number one supporter. Mr. Leggee helps to carry on the wonderful memories of such a talented, caring educator that touched so many Huntley student’s lives. 

Elementary school buildings and programs are similar in design to maximize positive transitions and student movement. Our building opened it's doors in Fall of 2000 and is the only K-5 school in the district.   Currently we house approximately 825 students.  This year there are 6 full day Kindergarten classes, 7 First Grade, 6 Second Grade classes, 6 Third Grade class, 6 Fourth Grade classes, and 4 Fifth Grade classes offered. Classes average about 23 students per class at Leggee Elementary School in Grades K-2 and 25 in Grades 3-5. All student registration is completed at the Student Registration Department, which is in the District Administration Building in Algonquin.

Children in all District158 elementary schools enjoy 30 minutes of daily Physical Education, Music three times a week for 30 minutes each, and Art for an hour each week. All of the specials are taught by fully qualified teachers. Library books may be checked out weekly, and students visit our computer labs for instructional support activities and learning assessment.

Student support services include School Nurse, Social Worker, Speech, Reading Specialist, and a full compliment of Special Education services.

The school office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:00p.m. All guests must check in at the office during student attendance hours. Children may enter the building at 8:25 a.m. and are dismissed at 3:25 p.m. Currently, all of our surrounding neighborhoods qualify for district transportation. The Huntley Park District provides on site before and after school child care services. A hot lunch program is offered, for which parents can manage their accounts with online account viewing and payment.
