Happy New Year! We hope everyone has a relaxing and safe winter break.


On Monday, Jan. 11 the BHS will welcome back small groups of special education and at-risk students, while all other students will continue with Distance Learning for the week.

As we prepare to implement the Hybrid 2.0 plan on Tuesday, January 19 we wanted to remind everyone of some key dates:

  • Friday, January 15th: NO SCHOOL for all students, as staff prepare for the transition from Distance Learning to Hybrid 2.0
  • Tuesday, January 19th: Hybrid 2.0 begins for all students


During Semester 2, the high school will follow an eight period day for all students. Students choosing in-person instruction (hybrid) will be divided into two groups (A & B) and will attend school two days per week and rotating Wednesdays, based on their alphabetical grouping. All students will attend class and participate in synchronous concurrent instruction regardless of location (school or home). During the second semester there will be NO special Wednesday bell schedule.



Priorities within this model:


  • Maximizing the availability for onsite student learning while maintaining all COVID-19 health and safety requirements.

  • Every student has the opportunity to attend in-person learning at least twice each week.

  • Social-emotional learning can occur either in-person or remotely.

  • Parents will have consistency for child-care planning within this model.

  • No additional cost to the district as far as transportation.



Criteria for student occupancy percentage:


Student occupation rates at Barrington High School are based on three key criteria:


  • The ability to maintain a minimum of six feet of space between all student seats. This includes classroom seating, cafeteria seating, and seating in all common areas.


  • The ability to conduct physical education classes while limiting occupancy to 50 people or less. This standard applies to locker rooms, gymnasiums, and all other indoor teaching spaces.


  • Building cafeterias and common areas must have enough seating capacity to accommodate student lunch periods and other unassigned open periods without violating regulations requiring six foot social distancing or the restriction limiting space capacity to 50 or less.


In-Person Learning Groups:


  • Group A: Last name A-L

  • Group B: Last name M-Z

COVID-19 Symptom Screening App

In an effort to promote a safe and healthy environment for students and staff entering our buildings, all schools will continue using the COVID-19 Symptom Screening app. The web app allows 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. All staff, visitors and students entering school buildings should use this web app each day before arriving at school. To access our COVID-19 Symptom Screening web app, visit health.barrington220.org on any device. To learn more about the web app, please watch the short video below.
