Goshen Local School District

2017 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. Planning is underway to ensure our students can experience this once-in-a-lifetime event.

 

Thanks to our wonderful PTO all students will have a pair of eclipse glasses for a safe viewing experience. Students will not be permitted to look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through unfiltered cameras, telescopes, binoculars or other optical devices, with or without glasses.  For more information regarding the safety certification of the special viewing glasses, please visit www.eclipseglasses.com/pages/safety

 

An opt out parent signature is required by August 21,2017 if you DO NOT want you child to participate using the eclipse glasses. Students whose parents choose to opt out their child will view televised coverage and complete an alternative activity from inside the school building during the eclipse.
