Barrington 220 School District

An update from Barrington 220: Nov. 13, 2019

Barrington 220 Inclement Weather Protocol

As we head into winter, we would like to remind families of Barrington 220’s inclement weather protocol. In the event of inclement weather, the Superintendent of Schools will implement one of the following three scenarios:

School Canceled (traditional)

All school buildings will be closed and students will make up the inclement weather day at the end of the school year.

Distance Learning (new for 2019-20 school year)

All school buildings will be closed, however students and staff will complete the school day from home. This would eliminate the need to make up days at the end of the school year. Teachers will check their usual electronic communication methods throughout the day during regular school hours, to support students. Students will have five (5) school days to complete their assigned work for the day and receive additional assistance from their teacher as needed.

  • Elementary Schools/ELC: First through fifth grade children will have access to their assignments through their teacher’s usual electronic communication method of See-Saw or Schoology, and/or will follow their IEP eLearning plan. They will have two core assignments. Additionally, they will need to choose two assignments from the posted “Specials Options” (art, library, music, STEM, or physical education) to complete in Google Docs or Drive, to which your child has access. Kindergarten/ELC students will have their “Blizzard Bags” of activities, which were sent home earlier this year.

  • Middle School/High School: Students will have access to their assignments through the normal electronic method of Schoology, and will follow their IEP eLearning plan. They should have an assignment/learning experience for each class.


If you have any questions, please review our PARENT FAQ.

Early Dismissal

There may be some rare occasions where it will be necessary to dismiss school early. On these days, middle and high schools will dismiss first. Elementary school students will be released at their regular dismissal time.

Inclement Weather Communication

School closings due to inclement weather or other unusual circumstances will be announced on the district website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. Families will also receive a text, phone call and email through the Infinite Campus automated emergency notification system.

Emergency Notification Test

Barrington 220 will send out a TEST of the emergency notification system on Friday, Nov. 15 at around 6pm. If you do not receive this test, please email June Nilles, Director of Student Information, at jnilles@barrington220.org.
