Due to new information and guidance received by the district, the decision has been made to close school on Monday, Aug. 21.
The safety of our students and employees must be our top priority. The full solar eclipse on Aug. 21, while providing an unprecedented learning opportunity, could also place our staff and students in unsafe situations as they move between classes, are transported home by our buses, or are driving themselves home from school.
This unique phenomenon has been and will continue to be a focal point of learning throughout the district. We encourage, but do not require, our students to safely view the eclipse with ISO-certified protective eyewear in preparation for instruction that will occur after the astronomical event.
This day, most likely, will be made up on February 19, President’s Day.
