To ensure the safety of our students, we will need to keep our elementary and Jr. High students, grades PreK-8, inside the buildings during the eclipse hours of 12:00 until the end of the usual normal school day, on Monday, August 21. Principals will limit movement after lunch to protect our students. No outside viewing of the eclipse is allowed without Principal approval. Teachers will inform all students, grades PreK-12, about the eclipse and how looking at the sun without protective eye glasses can cause severe eye damage and blindness. Parents are encouraged to talk with their children about this event and the injuries that can result from looking directly at the sun without protective eye glasses. Some live streaming of the event will occur where facilities and technology are available.
