Barrington 220 Elementary iPad Procedures for the Summer

Current Kindergarten Students
At all Barrington elementary schools, current kindergarten students will get a 1:1 iPad at the beginning of 1st grade. 1st grade teachers decide if/when iPads go home with students during the school year.

Current Grade 1-4 Students
At all Barrington elementary schools, current 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade students will take their iPads home over the summer. If parents do not wish to have iPads home over the summer, they should contact the Lines office at 847-381-7850. Lines students will then get their iPad back after school starts in August.

Current Grade 5 Students
At all Barrington elementary schools, current 5th grade students will take their iPads home over the summer and take them to middle school. If 5th grade parents do not wish to have iPads home over the summer, they should contact the Lines office at 847-381-7850. These 6th grade students will get their iPads at their new middle school in August.

Lines Dads with Daughters – This is your group!

Daughters grow up too fast!  Create memories with your daughter(s) that will last two lifetimes!  Indian Princesses is a relaxed program with no required activities beyond what your and schedule allows.  

Indian Princesses is a great opportunity for dads to enjoy one-on-one indoor and outdoor activities with their daughter(s) while they are still young, strengthening the dad/daughter bond forever.  We organize activities throughout the year with other Lines dads with daughters; camp-outs, museum overnighters, get-togethers at a dads house with social time, snack and a craft.

Next event: June 9-11 - Spring Campout at Riverbend Campground Watertown, WI, (free to new families!)
