An update from Barrington 220: October 12, 2020
Barrington 220 weekly COVID-19 update
Dear Barrington 220 Community: 

On Monday, Oct. 19 Barrington 220 will implement its Hybrid plans for all grade levels. The district is excited to welcome students back into our school buildings and continue providing daily instruction for all, whether students are continuing with Distance Learning or Hybrid. 
In order to keep the community informed, each week the district will be sending out an update like this with the following information:

  • Barrington 220's current status based on the metrics
  • Barrington 220 COVID-19 dashboard
The COVID-19 dashboard shows the daily number of positive cases and quarantine cases among students and staff at each building in the district. 

  • A positive case is counted on the day it is reported. Every day after, it is placed in the quarantine category. 
  • Quarantine cases are students and staff not attending school due to testing positive or exposure to a positive case. 

*Please note, the dashboard only counts positive and quarantine cases for students who are in our school buildings. Students who are Distance Learning from home are not counted.*
Upcoming Board of Education meetings
Barrington 220 will also provide information about any votes or discussions at upcoming Board of Education meetings, related to the district’s return to in-person learning. 

The next regularly scheduled Board of Education meeting will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 20 at 7pm in the BMS-Station cafeteria. At this meeting, the district will provide an update to the Board of Education about the first couple of days of the Hybrid implementation. 

Due to public health guidelines, capacity at the Board meeting will be limited to 50 people in the room, however anyone who wishes to sign up for public comment may do so. If capacity is reached, you will be asked to wait in an overflow room and then be called in for public comment.

As a reminder, you can view the live stream of all Board of Education meetings by visiting the Board’s YouTube channel.
