  • As far as the calender of events and the overall information given on this website for parents, I would have to strongly agree with the rating before this one! I would like to be able to look on here and find out whatever I may need to know as I am not the full time guardian and since I don't get that from the kids other parent I don't know how else I am to find out what goes on and when. I would like to be as involved as I possibly can and do not think this website is helpful in helping me to know all I should. It would be nice for someone to take charge and make this website a bit more for all parents to be as informed as they can for their kids attending Barrow Elementary School.

  • Well I don't think that there is enough information on this web site for parents. Even on the calender is does not specify when summer break is. I would like to see more information about Barrow Elementary.
