If you have driven past the high school recently, you will see that there is a lot of construction activity going on. To that end, we have been busy trying to mitigate traffic related issues as we look forward to the first day of school. We ask that all students and families consider walking, biking, or riding the bus, if possible. In fact, students that consistently walk, bike, or ride the bus on and off of campus will be entered into a drawing to win BHS spirit wear, gift cards for Airpods, Apple Watches and more.
If a parent must pick-up or drop-off their student, please be advised that we have changed our drop off and pick-up locations, no longer will there be any pick-up/drop offs off of Main Street. Parents who must pick-up/drop-off must enter campus via Hart Road and follow the signs.
Visitor parking has also been re-located to the west parking lot. Field of Dreams parking lot is closed to car traffic.
Barrington 220 and the Village of Barrington have been consulting with Barrington Transportation to help reduce congestion near Barrington High School. We also sent out an email with alternative parking and drop off locations that are an option for students during the closure of hart road. Please consider utilizing these remote options to help mitigate traffic congestion at BHS. Click here for more information.
We are excited to welcome our students back, on Monday, August 22nd, and will be running a special schedule on Monday, August 22nd to kick-off the school year. We will also run a special schedule on Friday, August 26th for our Welcome Back pep assembly.
We look forward to a productive year empowering personal excellence in every learner.
STUDENT ABSENCE REPORTING
BHS believes that attending class, completing assigned work and contributing to the class are indispensable to success in school. Only when a student is in the classroom can he/she take full advantage of fellow classmates’ ideas, the teacher’s knowledge, expertise and counseling, and presentations of materials that enrich the class.
However, we recognizes illness, death in the immediate family, family emergencies and situations beyond the control of the student to be valid causes for missing school. If your student is too ill to come to school, please keep them at home and report the absence via the parent portal of Infinite Campus. Please be aware that attendance calls go out at 11AM each school day for unexcused absences, so it is important to submit absences via Infinite Campus in a timely manner. Attached are directions on how to utilize the parent portal, via the app or website to submit absence requests.
Parents/guardians must seriously consider whether or not the reason for the student missing valuable instructional time is sufficient to warrant the absence.
