Fall MAP Testing

We are planning to move forward with Fall academic testing in Barrington, despite the pandemic. This data will help us to guide instruction for students. For more information regarding MAP Testing, please click here.

Prairie Book Drop & Textbook Return

Prairie's library currently has almost 800 books checked out from last school year. As we prepare to reopen the library on a limited basis, it is important that we collect the books that were checked out during the last school year. Please drop library books and textbooks off at the book drop located outside the main entrance. Thank you!

What to Expect When Visiting the 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.
