See Something, Say Something!

In Barrington 220 the safety of our students and staff is always our top priority. This is why last fall we created a dedicated space on our website called "Safety 220". Here you can learn about measures the district has taken in recent years to enhance school safety. You can also report school threats, bullying, or other concerns. Remember, if you see something, say something!

Sunny Hill students get a taste of BHS-TV

Sunny Hill students, who anchor their daily school announcements, recently had the chance to learn from students who participate in the Barrington High School student-run television station, BHS-TV. The BHS-TV students showed our younger students how to work the high school camera equipment, gave them a tour of the BHS-TV live truck and helped the elementary students step in front of the camera! Established in 2006, BHS-TV is now one of the most successful high school video programs in the country.
