October 14, Parent Scheduled Conferences, 4:30pm - 8:00pm

October 15, Parent Scheduled Conferences & Team Scheduled Conferences, 12:00pm - 7:00pm


There will be no school on October 14th, 15th, or 16th.


Individual conferences were booked through Meet the Teacher and Team conferences were scheduled separately by the team. If you have an individual conference, zoom links will be provided in your Meet the Teacher confirmation. You will have to copy and paste these zoom links when starting the meeting. If you have a team conference, you will receive an email with the zoom link from the team.

Student IDs for In-Person Learners

Student IDs for Hybrid In-Person learners will be mailed out before October 19th unless students already received their ID during in-person MAP Testing. Student IDs are very important as they will be used daily to sign students in and verify that the COVID screener has been completed. Students cannot enter the building until the screener has been completed. Please be sure to send your student with their ID every day.

COVID-19 Symptom Screening Web App

Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff:


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 health.barrington220.org 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.


The system will confirm each check-in and respond whether or not it is safe to come to school for the day.


When arriving at school, a school employee will scan each ID. Those who have reported that they are free of COVID-19 symptoms may enter the building that day.


To learn more ways to access this system, please view this PDF.

Thank you for helping us all remain safe during this pandemic.


Sincerely,


Barrington 220
