Barrington 220 is strongly committed to building children's social, emotional, and academic competencies. The Wellness Team is an important part of the school community. We seek to foster the well-being of the students in our care. We provide support through prevention, education, and intervention to adolescents related to a variety of social/emotional concerns. We encourage student development of respect, responsibility, and resilience. To best support our students, we strive to remain current about the evolving concerns impacting adolescents today and to utilize evidence-based practices and supports.
Our goal is to partner with parents, administrators, teachers, and the community to support the healthy development of children.
A Message from the BHS Wellness Team and Secondary Counseling DepartmentsThe current school year continues to be a challenge for many members of the 220 community. The on-going pandemic has been difficult for everyone and an election, especially a national election, can be a time of strong thoughts and intense emotions even during a more typical school year. As we prepare to adapt to our ever-changing school year it seemed prudent to acknowledge the 220 community as a whole. One of the strengths of our K-12 district is the diversity of our students and staff. We continue to respect and value differences of opinion. District 220 is in this together and will get through it together. As always, buildings have counseling staff available to help support any social/emotional needs. As we continue to negotiate times of challenge and intense feelings please click here for more resources.
