Great American Solar Eclipse, August 21, 2017

On August 21, 2017, Oglethorpe County Schools will be just outside of the path of a total solar eclipse.  This event is being called the "Great American Solar Eclipse," because it is the first time since 1918 a solar eclipse will be visible on a path across the entire continental United States. The school system has purchased eclipse glasses, that meet NASA standards, for every student and employee in the district.  The glasses are free for all students and staff and will provide a way for students in 1st - 12th grade to safely see the eclipse without damaging their eyes.  Our pre-k and kindergarten students will not view the eclipse outside - only from the safety of their classrooms.  Parents are permitted to sign their child out early, but please do so no later than 1:30pm.  If you would like to volunteer to help or enjoy the viewing with your child at the primary or elementary school, please call the school to let them know.  We will have some additional glasses; however, we cannot guarantee that we will have eclipse glasses for all volunteers.
