The solar eclipse time is quickly approaching. Students in all grade levels, including Pre-K, have been and will continue learning about this very special eclipse that will not occur for another 40+ years. We are also aware of the safety measures that must be in place to keep our students’ vision clear. Due to the uncontrollable possibilities of eye/vision damage, our students will remain in the building and watch the eclipse phenomena from the NASA live-streaming site. All students will have some special “solar and lunar” treats during the day and a pair of solar glasses as a souvenir. THESE GLASSES WILL NOT MAKE IT SAFE TO LOOK AT THE SUN at any time. The glasses are simply a souvenir party favor.
Jerger students will be dismissed at 3:30, instead of the normal 3:00pm dismissal time. Signing –out and dismissal procedures will be as usual. The Y buses and other vans have been contacted and are aware of the 3:30 dismissal time for August 21, 2017. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at Jerger – 225-2625.
