Parents, On Monday, August 21, 2017, our nation will experience a solar eclipse. Dayton is expected to experience a 97% eclipse where the majority of the sun will be covered by the moon. The eclipse is expected to begin around 1:00pm and end around 4:00pm. We understand that this is a significant event and have considered many ways for our students to experience it. Our first priority, however, is safety. Homemade filters, sunglasses and many “eclipse” glasses recently sold are not sufficient to protect students’ eyes. For that reason, teachers will view live coverage in the classrooms to track the progress of the eclipse and will plan activities accordingly. All students will be informed of the dangers of looking directly at the sun at dismissal time. Parents, I am asking that you also explain the dangers of looking at the sun as well. During the time of the eclipse, school will be in session as normal, attendance will be taken, and dismissal will occur as normal. Sincerely Keith Colbert Principal Pathway School of Discovery
Just 1 day until school starts! We can’t wait to see you tomorrow!
