iPad Update

We are still working hard to make sure that every student has an iPad. Please remember that in order for students to take home their iPad, they must have a completed Technology User Agreement and a protective iPad case. Insurance is available for purchase through September 30, 2017, but please note any damage to an iPad that occurs outside of insurance activation is the responsibility of the user to pay for repairs. Thank you for your patience and flexibility!

No School Monday August 21 - Solar Eclipse

There will be no school for students on Monday, August 21, 2017, as a result of conditions associated with the Total Solar Eclipse. A make-up day will not be required. During a solar eclipse, the moon passes between the sun and the Earth and blocks the light from the sun. Trying to look directly at the sun during the eclipse can be hazardous to eyesight. Guidelines for watching the eclipse have been issued by NASA.
Students may not use their school-issued iPads to video and/or photograph the eclipse due to the chance of an “accidental glimpse” of the full-on solar disk which could damage eyes. The only way a person may look directly at the sun or partially eclipsed sun is through special purpose solar filters (commonly known as eclipse glasses) compliant with the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard. Homemade filters and/or regular sunglasses are not safe for looking at the sun.
NASA issues the following safety guidelines to prepare for the solar eclipse:
  • >Always supervise children using solar filters.
  • Stand still and cover your eyes with your eclipse glasses or solar viewer before looking up at the bright sun. After looking at the sun, turn away and remove your filter — do not remove it while looking at the sun.
  • Do not look at the sun or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or other optical device.
  • Similarly, do not look at the sun through a camera, a telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device while using your eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewer — the concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eye(s), causing serious injury.
