BHS HYBRID 2.0 UPDATE

Please make sure to complete the COVID 19 screening each morning for every student attending in-person learning.


Spring Break in Barrington 220 is the week of March 22 - March 26. If you are planning to travel, we wanted to share these public health guidelines for domestic and international travel in regards to quarantine procedures. Please note, this guidance changes frequently and may be different over the next couple of weeks. We will update everyone if anything changes.


Any student in grades 9-12 who needs to quarantine due to travel will be able to do concurrent instruction from home, as our secondary teachers are already teaching students in the classroom and students who are at home concurrently (at the same time).


See BHS daily menu here.

CHANGES TO SPRING TESTING

We were informed that ISBE (Illinois State Board of Education) has made the following changes to the administration of the state required testing:


  • Juniors - Omit the essay portion of the SAT (for both spring and any potential fall administration)
  • Freshmen & Sophomores - Eliminate the PSAT 8/9 and 10 (for spring 2021)

Given these changes, April 22nd will be a regular school day for all students.

SPRING TESTING

Juniors, and applicable seniors, will be participating in state-sponsored exams. All testing will be administered in - person and students in both hybrid and distance learning are to attend.


Tuesday, April 13th - all Juniors and any Senior who was absent or deferred the September testing will take the SAT.

Friday, April 30th - Juniors will take the Illinois Science Assessment


Only students participating in testing will attend school on these days. For all other students, they will have an asynchronous day.

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.
