Rihanna to visit Barrington High School March 22
Singer Rihanna will make her long anticipated appearance at Barrington High School on Friday, March 22 — a day the school normally would be closed for the first day of spring break.
"In one way it's a good thing, because it won't disrupt our school day," district spokesman Jeff Arnett said.
The appearance, which coincides with Rihanna's visit to the Chicago area for a concert at the Allstate Arena, is only open to the school's students. Barrington Unit District 220 officials are looking into whether it might be possible to open up the event to students from both Barrington Middle School campuses as well.
Rihanna's visit is happening because the high school's TV production class won the singer's "Shine Bright Like A Diamond" student video contest — beating 52 other submissions from throughout the country.
After learning about the contest in early November, about 10 students spent around 50 hours recording and editing footage from various fundraisers and service work students and staff at the high school have participated in throughout the year.
Barrington High School learned of its victory around the holidays.
The exact time and extent of Rihanna's visit will be determined in the weeks ahead, Arnett said.
