WEEKLY UPDATE: Week of August 21st

As you know, there will be a partial solar eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017 between


the hours of 9 am and 12 pm.  Please remind your students about the dangers of looking directly at the sun during the eclipse. The district has sent out an advisory message to all parents. Here is some information that was shared as well:

In the strictest sense, the eclipse is not dangerous, but looking at the sun without proper protection is always harmful. The primary safety issue during an eclipse is that curiosity regarding the phenomena makes it more likely people, especially children, will try to glimpse theeclipse without proper eye protection. It is just as dangerous to look at the sun during the eclipse as it is every other day.  Individuals should not look directly at the sun at any time. Please take a moment to reinforce this message at home. People who look at an eclipse without proper protection, even glimpses, are likely to suffer burns which damage the light-sensitive cells that provide the ability to see.

While we will be on a normal schedule on Monday, we will remind students not to look directly at the sun.   Teachers will also reinforce these expectations about safety. We will have the auditorium open for students to view the NASA feed of the eclipse.  Please see this NASA link for more information.  https://www.nasa.gov/eclipselive/#NASA+TV+Public+Channel
