Monday there will be a Solar Eclipse – a rare event where the Moon passes perfectly between the Sun and the Earth.  Although this is a very rare occurrence, it can also be very dangerous to the eyes.  You must have appropriate safety glasses (not sunglasses) to view this event.  We do not have these for all students, therefore we will not be having students outside or at recess on Monday from 1:30-4:00.  However, the eclipse does not end until 4:30.  Please be on-time for student dismissal on Monday and remind your child not to look towards the sun.  We will send the same reminder to students prior to dismissal.  Teachers may have students observe the eclipse in the classroom through streamed and safe videos.
