WATCH: Season 3, Episode 1 of "220 in less than 2"

Dear Barrington 220 community,


I hope everyone had a safe summer and you were able to find some time to relax during this unusual period in all of our lives. Here in Barrington 220 we have been very busy preparing for the start of the 2020-21 school year.


Even though this school year is kicking off unlike any we have experienced before, I am excited for our students to return to learning. Staff members have been working hard to make sure we deliver the best possible education to our students, regardless of if we are in-person or remote. In addition, our staff have been working to create a safe environment in our school buildings in anticipation of the day when all students can return to in-person learning.


Two years ago I started a monthly video series called “220 in less than 2”, which addresses a variety of topics happening across the school district. I never could have imagined that the third season would be addressing the current environment we are in. However, Barrington 220 will make the best of the situation and rise to the occasion.

I hope you will watch my first episode of the 2020-21 school year by clicking the link below:
