On August 21, 2017, a partial solar eclipse with take place. It is the first time since 1918 a solar eclipse will be visible on a path across the entire continental United States. East is planning a voluntary viewing opportunity for students to experience this once-in-a-lifetime event. We have purchased eclipse viewing glasses for students, faculty and staff and safety is always our top priority. We will take all precautionary measures to make this experience both safe and enjoyable.
Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun. Students will not be permitted to look at the partially eclipsed sun through unfiltered cameras, telescopes, binoculars, naked eye or other optical devices, with or without glasses. Failure to use appropriate filtration may result in permanent eye damage or blindness.
Because of the safety concerns, a parent or guardian signature is required to authorize his/her student to participate. Students whose parents do not complete this form will not be able to participate. Those without forms will stay inside and view the eclipse via a live feed provided by NASA.
Forms will come home tomorrow and are due Friday. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact us.
