Public school students in Barrington are distance learning this week, and are expected to return to in-person learning starting Monday, Jan. 11.

The district recently announced its schedule following the holiday break. Students in all six schools are doing distance learning this week (from Jan. 4 to 8). On Monday, Jan. 11, all Barrington schools will resume in-person learning models that were in place prior to November.

“All district 5-day students as well as students in PK-6 (pre-kindergarten through grade six) will attend in person 5 days per week,” stated an email from the district. “All students in (grades) 7-12 will resume hybrid learning …”

The district is also reminding families that any students who traveled during the holiday break must quarantine for 14 days upon returning to Rhode Island.

“We will not accept a test in lieu of quarantine,” stated the email.
