WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!

The first day of school is always a favorite day of the year. This year will be very different, however we want all students and parents to know our staff will be ready to deliver Distance Learning instruction that is far superior to what occurred this past spring.


Over the summer, many of our teachers engaged in professional development that was designed to improve virtual instruction. In addition, during the teacher institute days prior to the beginning of the school year, all teachers will be participating in Distance Learning professional development.


To reiterate what Dr.Harris stated, we emphasize that if you have questions, please reach out to your building principals, teachers, or the district office, instead of relying on information from other sources such as social media. School districts nationwide are being challenged through this pandemic and we know that if we work together Barrington 220 can be a leader in these uncertain times.
