Dear parents and guardians,
On Monday, August 21, 2017, from 9:05 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. (PST), North America will experience a solar eclipse. California will only see a partial eclipse that will peak at 10:21 a.m.
To minimize the likelihood that students will look directly at the sun and risk damaging their eyes, all outdoor activities between 9:00-1:00 PM will be indoors. During this time, we will maximize the learning opportunities that the eclipse provides by participating in the event via live streaming, videos or other lesson plans.
The following websites contain educational resources and safety information to share with your family and friends:
