COVID-19 Screening Web App

We apologize that the screener did not work this morning, but please continue to fill out the screener every day. All staff, visitors and students entering school buildings must use the COVID-19 Screening web app each day before arriving at school. Students will not be permitted into the building until they have filled out a screener. To access our COVID-19 Symptom Screening web app, visit health.barrington220.org on any device.

Middle School Cell Phone Policy

Please help us by reminding your child that students are not able to use their cell phone during the school day. If brought to school, cell phones should be turned off and put away in backpacks during the school day. Cell phones will be confiscated from any students using their phone and will only be returned to parents. Students who need to reach their parents during the school day are encouraged to use one of the classroom or office phones available throughout the school. We appreciate your assistance in helping us to maintain a positive and productive learning environment.
