The first-semester final exams are scheduled from December 19 through December 22. The final exam schedule will be three final exam periods on days one and two, with two final exam periods and a make-up period on day three. Four days have been scheduled to accommodate potential winter weather issues. The exact schedule for final exams will be confirmed on December 15. See schedule below.

Most classes, with the exception of Physical Education classes, will have a concluding experience to end the semester such as portfolios, projects, end of unit exams, traditional final exams, AP practice exams, or performance assessments. By now teachers should have communicated the course specifics final experience expectations to students. In order to give a more flexible format for students and teachers, each period will meet once for 90 minutes during the FINAL DAYS in order to wrap up the year in a format that is appropriate for that class.

Barrington High School counseling department will be visiting with our Freshmen and Sophomores PE classes over the next weeks to confer with students in regards to their course selections for the 2023-24 school year. During these conversations, counselors will be going through students’ course requests and taking any special requests for the 23-24 school year. While next year seems far off, please have conversations with your students about any special scheduling requests they may have.

See Something, Say Something Reporting Method
Barrington 220 is now partnering with an Illinois school safety helpline aimed at providing students a place to report information that might prevent bullying, suicide, and campus violence. Safe2Help is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It allows students to confidentially share school safety issues via a mobile app, text, email, or phone call. You will notice that the "See Something, Say Something" button on our district and school website now links directly to the Safe2Help contact page. We are asking that all students, parents, staff, and community members now use this platform to report safety concerns. In the case of an emergency, call 911.
