Homework Clinic will begin August 28th.
On Monday, August 21st, in Anchorage the solar eclipse will begin at 12:59 p.m. and end at 3:51 p.m. It is DANGEROUS for anyone to look at the sun anytime, and during the eclipse this is particuallry dangerous from 12:59 p.m. until 3:51 p.m. without authentic certified solar eye protection. The sun appears approximately 400,000 times brighter than a full moon and any amount of exposure can cause short and long-term eye damage. Sun glasses, or even layers of sun glasses, will not protect eyes from damage.
Student safety is our top priority. We want all of our students and families to have a safe experience during the Great Eclipse. If you have questions regarding safety or plans please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Terry, Mrs. Hayes or Mrs. Ransdell.
If you did not pick up your pre-ordered Buzz Book at orientation, then please stop by the front office this week to do so. If you did not pre-order one, and would like to purchase one, the front office has a few extra for $7 each.
