Summer school registration begins today!

Summer school in Barrington begins on Monday, June 6, 2022 for all grade levels. Registration for all levels is now open on our summer school webpage. Please note that due to Build 220 construction happening this summer at several schools, there are a few location changes:

  • The elementary summer school program that is traditionally held at Roslyn Road Elementary will be held at Arnett C. Lines Elementary. This program serves students from Hough, Lines, North Barrington and Roslyn Road.

  • The Jump Start and Dual Language programs traditionally held at Sunny Hill Elementary will be held at BHS.

  • The middle summer school program will be held at BHS.

The elementary summer school program that is traditionally held at Barbara B. Rose Elementary WILL remain at Rose. This program serves students from Countryside, Grove, Sunny Hill and Rose.

Note: Registration for Barrington Online Summer School (BOSS), which is only for elementary students, opens on March 15.
We want your feedback!
Barrington 220 is excited to embark on a strategic planning process called Framework 220, which will define the school district’s future vision and initiatives over the next three to five years. Gaining feedback from the entire Barrington 220 community is critical in this process, which is why we are kicking it off with this online questionnaire. In addition, you can click the button below to learn more about the process and other ways you can participate.
Construction is set to begin this spring at Barrington High School, starting with the relocation of the tennis courts, the addition of a multipurpose turf field and updates to the baseball and Fields of Dreams complex. An estimated total of $62 million out of the $147 million referendum will be spent at BHS, which includes all construction costs and non-construction items such as safety and security, furniture and technology.

In the meantime, we are now nine months into construction of the new classroom additions at Prairie Middle School and Station Middle School, and seven months into construction of the new classroom addition at Grove Avenue Elementary School.

Support upgrades to baseball and softball fields at BHS
While the Build 220 projects will accomplish numerous repairs and improvements to the current athletic facilities at BHS, a group of community members has formed the Friends of the Fields (FOTF) Committee to raise additional funds for specific upgrades to the Fields of Dreams complex and Varsity Baseball stadium. These upgrades go above and beyond what is included in the Build 220 projects. To learn more about how you can support this project, including sponsorship opportunities, visit the FOTF website.
Take the 5 Essentials Survey
This year all students in grades 4 through 12 and teachers across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school. Click here to take the survey.
