A Message from the Principal
As you may know, on Monday, August 21st at approximately 2:35 p.m. the Atlanta Metro Area will experience a 98% solar eclipse event. This is an exciting and significant event and our school leadership team has been reviewing information on safety precautions for the Solar Eclipse. After looking at the specific requirements, our Administrative Team has made the decision to not participate in the outside viewing of the Solar Eclipse.
For families who have made alternative plans for viewing the eclipse, know ALL student absences and/or checkouts on this day will be counted as excused. If you wish to pick up your child, please do so prior to 12:30 for the safety of you and the student. Additionally, the District will delay dismissal at all elementary schools until 3:05. Our bus dismissal may be delayed by about 20 minutes.
For more information about safety during the Solar Eclipse, visit https://aas.org/media/press-releases/aas-offers-updated-advice-safely-viewing-solar-eclipse. Thank you and please feel free to contact the school should you have any other questions.
