2017 Solar Eclipse

2017 Solar Eclipse

 

On August 21, 2017, St. Jude Catholic School will be in the path of a solar eclipse. This event is being called “The Great America Solar Eclipse” and “Total Eclipse of the Heartland” because it is the first time since 1918 a solar eclipse will be visible on a path across the entire continental United States.

 

We have ISO certified and NASA approved glasses for all students.

 

Teachers will be taking students outside to witness the eclipse. If you WOULD NOT like your child to go outside during the eclipse, please notify your child’s teacher and your child will stay inside.  

 

Safety is a top priority. Students will not be permitted to look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun without ISO certified/NASA approved solar glasses.

 

An eclipse is a rare and striking phenomenon, but students and staff must carefully follow safety procedures. The eclipse can be experienced safely, but it is vital that eyes are protected at all times with the proper solar filters.
