  • In order to determine the district’s current step, all metrics must be met. Trends are critical for success to Get Open—Stay Open. As of Oct. 19, the Lake County Health Department advises schools to remain in their current mode of learning for at least 7 days before making any transition. Please keep in mind, when making decisions to manage the risk of exposure, we are looking at trends over time.

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. To quickly locate data for the current week, scroll to the bottom of the dashboard and click the "Current Week" tab.

    • A positive case is counted on the day it is reported. Every day after, it is placed in the quarantine category.
    • Quarantine cases are total students and staff not attending school due to testing positive or exposure to a positive case.
    • "X" is used for non-attendance days.

  • Distance Learning has once again been in effect since Wednesday, Oct. 28, after the Lake County Health Department recommended that all Lake County public and private K-12 schools transition to virtual learning. Though Barrington 220 serves students in Cook, Kane, Lake and McHenry Counties, the district is considered a Lake County school district and works directly with them for guidance. Barrington 220 will continue to follow our established five metrics. This means the district will remain in Distance Learning until the data shows it is safe to return to the Hybrid mode.

    During this time:

    • Staff are in their school buildings
    • Many special education students are in person
    • Extracurriculars and IHSA approved sports are continuing
    • Students will continue to have opportunities to come into school buildings in small groups for various reasons coordinated at each school

Hybrid Plans
