 Total Solar Eclipe - Monday, August 21st, 2017

 

 Dear Parents,

Please be aware that like you, our system is very excited about the opportunity to experience the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017.  Because of this excitement, all three schools have purchased approved eclipse glasses to be utilized by the students who attend school on August 21.  In the event you do not want your student to share in this experience while at school, please notify the school in advance.

In addition, please be aware that we understand if you want to make the eclipse a family event.  In the event that your child does not attend school on August 21, 2017 please send a note stating the eclipse as the reason for the absence.  Your child will suffer no consequence for this absence, and will be counted present.

In the event you choose to make viewing a family activity, please be aware that looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse (“totality”), when the moon entirely blocks the sun’s bright face, which will happen only within the narrow path of totality.  The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun. Refer to the American Astronomical Society (AAS) for guidance. Make sure that your eclipse glasses or viewers are compliant with the ISO 12312-2 safety standard. For more information please visit https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/safety.

 

Sincerely,

 

Janine Wilson

Director of Fayetteville City Schools
