Share Eclipse Safety Information With Your Child(ren)

District Parents & Guardians,

As you know, student safety is extremely important to us, and this Monday’s solar eclipse has us asking for your help to maximize their safety. Please take several moments between now and Monday morning to remind your children the importance of not looking directly into the eclipse without proper eyewear.

All of our schools will dismiss at their normal times on Monday, but those dismissal times happen at various points during the eclipse. This is why you will need to remind your children not to look directly into the eclipse without proper eyewear.

We are aware of the concern parents have regarding possible exposure to the eclipse for intermediate, elementary, and preschool students who may be outside during the event. Our students will be in their classrooms during the eclipse to eliminate any risk of possible eye damage.

There are many resources our teachers have the opportunity to use to show and teach our students about this unique event. We have included a great resource link from NASA that is linked at the bottom of this message that includes a plethora of information related to the eclipse.

NASA, along with many other news outlets, will be streaming the event as it happens. This will allow students to see a live view of the eclipse without risking potential damage to their eyes from looking at the eclipse without proper eyewear.

Thank you for your help and understanding as we work to keep your children and our students safe.

Visit NASA's Eclipse website for complete information regarding the eclipse happening on Monday, August 21, 2017.
