Update on CDC Guidance 

This evening, Dr. Hunt sent out communication to all District 220 Families regarding the updated CDC Guidance involving masking in schools and on buses. Please click on this link in order to be sure to read this important message from our superintendent regarding changes for tomorrow and Tuesday. I will be sharing an update for our students in the morning via a video announcement. Please keep in mind that even though the CDC is no longer recommending Barrington 220 students, staff, and visitors wear a mask on school transportation or inside school buildings, anyone who wishes to continue wearing a mask is welcome to do so. We will continue to communicate with our students that masking is an individual choice and we must respect one another’s decisions. 

Framework 220 - Community Feedback Needed for Long Term Strategic Planning 

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. The district is very interested in casting a broad net to our school and community stakeholders to better understand our community’s expectations and priorities for Barrington 220. This is why we are launching the process by asking all of our parents and community members to complete this online questionnaire. As a parent and staff member in this district, your voice is critical. The more responses we receive the better we will understand the expectations of our community. Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. To learn more about how you can participate, visit:

5 Essentials Survey

Please click on the links below to a letter regarding an important survey for the parents of Grove Avenue School. The results of this survey will be included as a portion of our official School Report Card and school ranking next fall. As a result, your participation and input is important, as we need at least 20% of our parent population to participate. Students in grades four and five, as well as, the Grove Avenue Staff will be participating in the survey.


The survey will be open until the beginning of April, but please take a few minutes to complete the survey as soon as possible. It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
