Students planning to stay home the day of the eclipse for viewing will need to fill out an EHO form.
If parents plan to check their children out of school on the 21st to view the eclipse, there are two scenarios:
A.) Student checks out of school, views the eclipse, and then returns to school - this will be a school approved check in/out.
B.) Student checks out of school to view the eclipse and will be out the reaminder of the day - this situation will require an EHO.
Each student will recieve a bag from NASA that will contain the eclipse viewers. If your child plans to watch the eclipse from home, or in a public viewing area, please let your child's teacher know so the bag can be sent home with the child. You can also pick your child's NASA bag up at school on the 21st if you check them out early.
Parents, we ask you to communicate with your child's teacher your intentions for your child if they are different than what the school has planned. We want to be able to get the materials to you if your child will need them at home, yet have them here at school if they are viewing the eclipse with the Monroe County School District.
Reminder: 4th - 12th Grades will view the eclipse at the GES campus with a signed waiver.
K-3 Grades will view the eclipse via live stream from the NASA website.
Students who do not have a signed waiver will also watch the eclipse from the NASA website at their designated schools.
Please call, email, or text us any further questions you may have.
