On Monday, August 21st the first total solar eclipse to cross the U.S. since 1918 will occur. Arizona is not in the direct path of the total solar eclipse and will only experience a partial eclipse of about 70%.
Naturally, students are going to be curious about the partial solar eclipse that we will witness here in Arizona.
While this is an exciting event, our teachers and support staff are embracing this opportunity and want to ensure our students remain safe and are protecting their eyes while the solar eclipse is occurring. In order to do this, we are going to live stream the total solar eclipse through our classrooms' Smart TVs.
We encourage all parents to talk about the eclipse with their students, and to partner with our schools and teaching staff in the educational process!
If you have any questions about this special event, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. A total solar eclipse is one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights, and it isn't every day we get to witness one!
Here's when to expect the eclipse:
