Solar Eclipse

Dear Parents and Community Members,

Monday’s solar eclipse is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Many teachers have been doing activities in class that provide a great learning opportunity.

  • To keep all students safe, please talk to your child about NOT looking at the sun and the dangers of doing so. Our teachers are having the same conversation in class.
  • Teachers who are taking their students to view the eclipse will have a device to use such as a pinhole camera or the authorized glasses. There will be at least 2 adults with the class providing supervision.
  • There will be no outside PE/recess between 9-11:45am. Teachers who opt to stay indoors will work on activities related to the solar eclipse and watch it on TV.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me or your classroom teacher.
