NEW SECURITY UPDATE FOR ZOOM AT BHS

To increase the security in our BHS Zoom class meetings, staff will now use an updated setting in Zoom which will only allow participants with a bsd220.org email address. Please be sure your student is logged into their school email when accessing Zoom. Click here for directions on how to enter BHS Zoom meeting or navigate to this URL: bit.ly/ZoomBHS

We would like to remind students that for the best possible wireless and internet experience, they should be as close to their home wireless access point as possible.

For tech support, call 224-655-1500 (available on school days from 8AM to 4PM).

CALENDAR CHANGE

The Illinois State Board of Education has granted school districts five additional Professional Development (PD) days during the 20-21 school year for the use of staff planning and training to meet the needs of educating staff in a Distance Learning environment. Barrington 220 plans to use one of those days on Wednesday, Sept. 16 for staff development. It will NOT be an attendance day for students, however we will be bridging the instruction from Tuesday to Thursday with independent work that the students will be ask to complete.
