Barrington 220 Announces Inclement Weather Protocol

Barrington 220 News
November 29, 2017

As we head into winter, it is important to note that in the event of severe weather, the Superintendent of Schools may choose to either cancel classes or implement an early dismissal procedure. 

All schools will be closed and extracurricular activities will be canceled when there is a wind chill warning. A wind chill warning is typically issued when the wind chill will be -30°F or colder and the winds are greater than or equal to 10 mph, OR the actual temperature is -15°F. 

There may be some occasions where it will be necessary to dismiss school early. On these days, middle and high schools will dismiss first. Elementary school students will be released at their regular dismissal time. 

School closings due to severe weather or other unusual circumstances will be announced on the district websiteFacebook and Twitter pages. Families will also receive a text, phone call and email through the Infinite Campus automated emergency notification system.

If you did not receive a test of the emergency system on Tuesday, Nov. 28 between 5:30pm-6pm, please email June Nilles, Director of Student Information, at
