Solar Eclipse Safety – The upcoming solar eclipse Monday, August 21, brings a unique opportunity to those in its path. Along with the eclipse comes some risk. It is the sincere hope of all of us here in the District that everyone will take appropriate precautions while observing this historic event. Please protect yourself and your family by discussing and understanding the serious risk involved in viewing the sun without proper protection. Information about solar eclipse safety is available on NASA’s website at https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/safety.

Winter weather can present some real challenges for school districts. Many factors have to be considered when making a decision that impacts the safety of our students and staff. Sometimes that decision does not quite fit with the situation as you see it; but you can always trust that the safety of all students and staff is at the heart of every decision.
Although conditions may not appear threatening where you are, the conditions faced by our students and staff who live elsewhere must also be considered. It would do no good to get students to school, only to have staff members experiencing more severe conditions unable to join them.
We take our responsibility for your children very seriously and do our very best to get accurate information to you as soon as we possibly can. We appreciate your support and understanding during those challenging times.
