Eclipse 2017 Letter

Dear Families,

A total solar eclipse will take place during the afternoon of Monday, August 21st. The majority of the eclipse will not be safe for the human eye to view without specialized eyewear. Much of the United States will be exposed to the eclipse, but our area is designated as one of the most dangerous due to reduction in totality. We will be educating our students about the nature of the eclipse and the dangers that exist. We do understand that dismissal time will coincide with the eclipse and we plan to closely monitor our students at that time. Aside from dismissal, we will not expose our students to view this event to ensure their safety.

Should you have concerns you may pick your child up that day and there will be no adverse attendance consequences. In addition, we will be posting a link on our website that will take you to detailed eclipse information to help you further understand and prepare for this event.

The safety of our students and staff will always be our top priority. Thank you in advance for working together with us during this rare occasion.
