Back to school movie night

Barrington 220 is excited to partner with the Barrington 220 Educational Foundation to celebrate the start of the 2019-20 school year with a back to school movie night at BHS!

Rotary raising money for lifesaving kits

Barrington 220 is proud to partner with the Barrington Rotary Clubs to provide life-saving "Stop the Bleed" kits to every Barrington area classroom (public and parochial), plus public areas such as the library and parks. In the event of a tornado, active shooter, or any other serious catastrophe, having advanced first aid kits in classrooms will allow treatment of student injuries, with a 7-10 minute jump-start before professional aid arrives.
