ILLINOIS SCIENCE ASSESSMENT

On Friday, April 30th, Juniors will be participating in the state-sponsored exam. All testing will be administered in-person and students in both hybrid and distance learning are to attend. An email will be sent out with testing location and procedures.


Only students participating in testing will attend school on these days. All other students will have an asynchronous day. Teachers will communicate activities and expectations directly to students.

S2 FINAL EXAMS

The last day of school for grades 9 - 11 is currently scheduled for May 26, 2021. As we have done the last two semesters, we will not have our typical semester final exam schedule. Instead, we will utilize May 27th and May 28th for students needing to provide additional evidence. More information coming soon.

NATIONAL DRUG TAKE-BACK DAY

Barrington is participating in the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. This opportunity aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also providing education to the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. Simply bring your prescription medicines to the Public Safety Facility, 400 N. Northwest Highway in Barrington on Saturday, April 24, 2021, from 10am-2pm.
