Inclement Weather Alert for Monday, August 21st 

Body

August 21st INCLEMENT WEATHER CLOSURE - Solar Eclipse - No School for Students

 

 

There will be no school for students on Monday, August 21, 2017, as a result of conditions associated with the Total Solar Eclipse.  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.

 

The District places a priority on student safety at all times.  The eclipse presents a unique situation which creates numerous logistical challenges for a school district of this size resulting in conditions that could place students at risk.  Additionally, the full phase of the solar event will take place during school dismissal.  

 

“Student safety remains our guiding factor as we consider all conditions surrounding this event.  After reviewing various options and carefully weighing the pros and cons of each, it has been determined that school closure for students is the most responsible option,” said Dr. Ann Levett, Superintendent of Savannah-Chatham Public Schools.  “We also recognize the historical significance of this event for our country.  The days leading up to the eclipse will present wonderful learning activities for our students which will also feature safety information regarding the dangers of looking at the sun during this occurrence.”  

 

August 21, 2017, will be considered an inclement weather day and there will be no school for students.  A make-up day will not be required.  All staff will be required to report to work as normal.

 

Guidelines for watching the eclipse have been issued by NASA.  For more information regarding the solar eclipse visit the National Weather Service at http://www.weather.gov/source/crh/eclipse.html?sid=sgf
