On Monday, August 21, 2017, we will experience the Great American Total Solar Eclipse. Between approximately 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on this date, nearly 90% of the sun will become blocked by the moon.
On Monday, all BCSC schools will be in session and will operate at normal times. Information is being shared with all students regarding the danger of staring directly at the sun during the eclipse and they will be well supervised if outside during the event.
Each of our school buildings is approaching the day as an educational opportunity and is taking necessary precautions to ensure student safety. For specific information regarding plans for the day, please contact the building principal. Precautions will include the use of approved special purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand held solar viewers. Since the time frame for the eclipse includes the time that we will be transporting students, our school bus drivers will act accordingly and remind students of the potential damages of looking directly at the sun.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact the following school administrators:
