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 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.

For more ways to access this system, click here.

Student Directory

The Student Directory is now available on the Parent Portal of Infinite Campus. The Barbara Rose Student Directory is located on the first page in the Message Center under School Announcements. Some parents may have opted out so some students/information may not be available.

Community Butler

Need chores done? Community Butler will take care of it. We are a BHS startup company that connects hard working students with members of the local community to help complete tasks, services, and odd jobs. We provide multiple services such as leaf clean up, tutoring (in-person or online), babysitting, and more!

As a way to help give back to the Rose School community we have created a community connect program that will donate service hours to the school. To book a job or learn more visit or email us at
