Honk & Wave/Trunk or Treat Event

Come celebrate Halloween at Rose School On Wednesday, October 28th, 1:00-2:30 pm. Rose will host an outdoor Halloween Event in the school parking lot. Students and families are invited to dress up in costumes and decorate their cars (if they wish) and drive through the parking lot. This will be a socially distanced event, and families are not allowed to exit their cars. Teachers will have their trunks decorated, and the Student Council is sponsoring a Virtual Scavenger Hunt. Students will even receive a treat! We are looking forward to seeing you. To help with traffic, we are asking families to try and come at the given times below.


Last names:

A-G => 1:00-1:30 pm

H-N =>1:30-2:00 pm

O-Z => 2:00-2:30 pm

Candy Needed

We are looking for parents to help out with candy donations for the Halloween Trunk or Treat Event. Parents or students can drop off unopened bags of individually wrapped candy or treats in the Halloween bin located in the school foyer. Please drop off all candy by Tuesday, October 27th. Thank you for your support!

Pumpkin/Gourd Decorating Contest

Families are welcome to submit a carved or decorated pumpkin and/or gourd to be judged. Prizes will be awarded to the best in the following categories:

1. Most "Gourdious" pumpkin/gourd

2. Most Grandiose pumpkin/gourd

Drop off submissions on Wednesday, October 28th no later than 11:00 am outside the front entrance of Rose and make sure your child's name is on the pumpkin.

Winners will have prizes dropped off at their homes.

Class T-shirts

It’s time for class t-shirts! This year we decided to have the fifth graders come up with a slogan for the back of the t-shirts! The front of the shirts will be the normal stingray. The back of the shirts will have the saying “Zooming Through A Great School Year!” (submitted by Nicolette Hiles - winner of slogan contest). Orders will be taken for three weeks until November 13th through Infinite Campus. Cost per shirt is $10.

COVID-19 Symptom Screener

COVID-19 Symptom Screening Web App


In an effort to promote a safe and healthy environment for students and staff entering our buildings, Barrington 220 is implementing a web app to allow families and staff to quickly and easily report current COVID-19 symptoms. A web app is a website that functions like an app, but does not require a download from an App Store. This reporting is required by our local health departments. Please use this web app each day before arriving at school.


To access our COVID-19 Symptom Screening web app:

1. Visit health.barrington220.org on any device.

2. SIGN IN using your Infinite Campus username and password.

3. Respond to the survey for each child in your family, or for yourself if you are a staff member.

4. Tap CONFIRM for each survey to report the results.
