Barrington 220 to Remain in Adaptive Pause

On November 12th, the district announced that Barrington 220 will continue to follow our established five metrics. This means the district will remain in the adaptive pause until the data shows it is safe to return to the Hybrid mode.


Please understand that while we had hoped to return to Hybrid on Monday, Nov. 16, the safety of our students and staff must remain our top priority as the virus continues to spread within our community and surrounding communities.

Yearbook Photo Contest: "Zoom-mates"

For the 2020-2021 Station Yearbook, we'd like to feature some photos of students zooming, studying, reading, etc. with their pets. We'll feature the these photos of students and their "zoom-mates" on a special spread in the yearbook. Please submit pictures to krogers@barrington220.org and include your child's name and the pet's name (if you want the pet's name printed in the yearbook).

SSO Zoom Sign In

Please remind your Station students that when they are signing into Zoom, they MUST SIGN IN WITH SSO or they will not be able to get into their meetings. Once they have signed in with SSO, they will need to type barrington220 in the company domain. This will get them into their meetings.

Please send either Mr. Chang (pchang@barrington220.org) or Mrs. Kiss (sckiss@barrington220.org) an email or Schoology message if they have trouble.

Station's Adaptive Pause Schedule

**This is a simplified version that does not include AT/WL- nothing has changed.

  • Students will join Zoom sessions each period with the following exceptions:

    • On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday students will have an optional Academic Support time in place of Colt Time. Students only need to report to this period if requested by a teacher or if the student desires additional support from their teacher.

    • On Wednesdays a minimum of 50% of the student’s day will be synchronous, while the other periods will be asynchronous unless the teacher has communicated otherwise . This will rotate based upon the calendar date. Even dates will result with even periods(2,4,6,8) being synchronous and odd dates will result with odd periods(1,3,5,7) being synchronous. For example, on October 28th periods 2,4,6,8 will be synchronous and on November 4th periods 2,4,6,8 will be synchronous.

  • Band/Orchestra/Chorus (BOC) classes will take place during Academic Support/Colt Time.
