What to expect when visiting school buildings

Barrington 220 has enjoyed welcoming back small groups of students and parents to our school buildings and the district will continue to do so in September. In order to make sure everyone stays safe, the district has worked to put many protocols in place. Things look very different from previous years, so please take some time to review these protocols before visiting our schools.

A message on race, culture and gender

Over the past couple of months, current and former Barrington 220 students have shared experiences which make it clear that together as a school community we must work toward a greater understanding of our differences as they pertain to race, culture and gender. Please click here to read the district's full letter to the Barrington 220 community regarding these experiences.
