Solar Eclipse Information

posted Aug 18, 2017, 3:59 PM by Susan Stewart   [ updated Aug 18, 2017, 4:00 PM ]


Dear Parent/Guardian,

On Monday, August 21, 2017 all of North America will experience an eclipse of the sun. This is the first time since 1918 a solar eclipse will be visible across the entire continental United States. The Central Valley will not experience a total eclipse of the sun. Scientists estimate the moon will cover approximately 70 percent of the sun at the peak of the eclipse.  The eclipse will occur in Fowler/Malaga (Fresno County) around 9:03 a.m. and end at 11:42 a.m. The majority of the sun will be covered at 10:19 a.m.

Safety during the eclipse is our top priority. Looking directly at the sun during an eclipse is unsafe.  Elementary students, in grades TK-5, will have the opportunity to view the eclipse from the safety of their classrooms through the internet via Live Streaming. Middle school students will participate in a planned eclipse event during the morning break schedule using special glasses designed specifically for a solar eclipse. High school science classes will participate in solar eclipse viewing activities using a handheld solar viewer.  

Because of these safety concerns, other safety measures will be in place to protect students and staff:
  
PE Classes scheduled during the eclipse will be held indoors. 
Elementary students will have indoor recess. 
Middle school and high school students will have the opportunity to participate in eclipse viewing activities during science class or through supervised observation times. 
Restroom breaks will be monitored by school staff. 
Students will be advised not to look directly at the sun during passing times between classes and/or morning breaks. 
A solar eclipse is a phenomenal event and presents enormous learning opportunities for students of all ages. Taking these precautionary measures will ensure students have a safe and enjoyable learning experience.

Sincerely,

Eric Cederquist, Superintendent
