Welcome to the Barrington School District

Remote Instruction:
During the period of time between January 4, thru January 22, 2021, the entire Barrington School District will be on remote instruction. We will return to in-person hybrid learning January 25, 2021.The purpose of this remote period is to provide the safest learning environment for our staff and students following the winter break. Remote instruction during this time will allow a period of isolation while maintaining instruction for all students. All students will follow the live remote learning schedule during this time. Avon classroom teachers will share their classroom schedules with their students and parents, and Woodland school will share their updated remote schedules as well by grade level.

Student Learning Survey:
During the week of January 4th, parents will be asked to respond to a survey in the parent portal and make their selections for learning for the period of January 25 - April 1, 2021. At this time parents can choose for their child(ren) to remain in their current mode of instruction or change to either hybrid or remote. It is essential that all surveys are completed by January 8th so that any necessary adjustments can be made.

Live Streaming Grades 2-8
: Beginning January 25th, students in grades 2-8 will transition to a daily schedule that includes live streaming for core academic subjects. Our teachers have been working diligently to prepare for this transition, with many teachers participating in the pilot program. In grades 2 - 4 classrooms, teachers will provide an update to their live schedules for remote students that will go into effect January 25th, and in grades 5-8, students will receive new daily schedules by grade level. Grades K-1 and self-contained special education classes will continue to offer four full days of instruction, as well as continue the current schedule for live lessons for students who are remote.
