As many of you are aware, there will be a solar eclipse this Monday, August 21, beginning at 9:05 am and ending at 11:45 am. Here in Santa Clarita, we can expect approximately 70% of the sun to be covered by the moon at 10:21 am. All of the students and staff in the Hart District will be given solar eclipse glasses they can use to see the eclipse. It is important that your child wear the eye wear we are providing to them on Monday when looking at the sun and to follow directions for their own safety. Not doing so could cause permanent damage to their eyes.
Beginning Wednesday, August 16, through Monday, August 21, every school in the Hart District will show a series of videos to students not only educating them on what will be happening during the solar eclipse, but emphasizing the importance of wearing the eye protection.
This will be an amazing experience for us all. Please remind your students to be safe so they can see more solar eclipses in the future.
