Solar Eclipse and Safety Viewing

Solar Eclipse and Safety Viewing

The upcoming full solar eclipse on Monday, August 21, is generating much excitement throughout our community and the country. North Tech teachers and administrators would like for all students to view this event safely. We cannot overstress the importance of keeping every student protected from potential eye damage.

As a school, we are providing special eclipse viewing glasses to all our students and staff. An important element in protecting children is to make sure they understand and follow the necessary safety rules. Our teachers have and will stress those rules as the eclipse approaches.

There are many appropriate videos that explain what an eclipse is and how to properly view it. We urge all parents to sit with their children, view an eclipse video and then discuss the importance of using their eclipse glasses properly. Click here to view a short eclipse video that is easy to understand and has important viewing tips for students and parents.

For parents who do not want their student to be outside during the eclipse, they should contact their school’s principal. Thank you in advance for helping us make this historic eclipse event an exciting and safe learning experience for North Tech students.
