BHS BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT - SEPTEMBER 10, 2020

Barrington High School staff always looks forward to our Back-to-School night which gives us the opportunity to showcase our world-class curriculum and gives parents the chance to meet our high quality teachers. Although Back-to-School night 2020 will look different this year the evening is still intended to let you experience your student(s) school day and familiarize yourself with our wonderful staff.

Virtual Back to School will be held on Thursday, September 10th, via 10 minute Zoom meetings with your students classes at the times listed below. Parents can access the class Zoom links by logging into their Infinite Campus portal account, clicking on the calendar option on the left hand navigation bar, and selecting September 10th on the calendar. Courses will be listed with the period the class meets, the course name, teacher name, and the start time. To help you navigate through the evening, there is a 5 minute "passing period" between each course. We will post a welcome message and quick tutorial to help you maneuver the technology by the end of the day on Wednesday, September 09, 2020, on our BHS homepage.

We hope you take advantage of our virtual Back-to-School night. Our intent for the evening is to share an overview of curriculum and expectations. If you have any student specific questions or concerns, please reach out directly to the teacher to arrange an alternative time to meet.
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE ZOOM APP DOWNLOADED PLEASE DOWNLOAD BEFORE THURSDAY NIGHT.

CALENDAR CHANGE

The Illinois State Board of Education has granted school districts five additional Professional Development (PD) days during the 20-21 school year for the use of staff planning and training to meet the needs of educating staff in a Distance Learning environment. Barrington 220 plans to use one of those days on Wednesday, Sept. 16 for staff development. On this day students will work independently to complete asynchronous instructional activities, instead of following their regular schedule.

FALL ATHLETIC CAMPS

Barrington High School is offering a variety of athletic camps this fall to bring students back to campus and increase their physical activity in a controlled and safe environment. Only BHS students grades 9 - 12 are eligible to sign up for a camp.

Camps will run at various dates & times in September and October. Due to restrictions caused by COVID-19, and facility availability, many camps have a limited enrollment capacity. Enrollment is currently open and closes the evening prior to each camp starting or when camp capacity is reached.

All camps will adhere to protocols and procedures as outlined by the Illinois High School Association, State Department of Health, and Lake County Health Department. Parents are to submit a Self-Certification for their child every day prior to arriving at camp. To access our Health Self-Certification web app visit http://health.barrington220.org on any device. You will sign in using your Infinite Campus username and password.
