Solar Eclipse, Monday, April 8

As much as we would like to share in the solar eclipse with students, it is not in the best interest of students to participate in the viewing of the total solar eclipse in a preschool setting. The students are too young to guarantee certified screening glasses will stay on their faces as required, and the student/staff ratio will not allow for individual monitoring. For Maryland residents, the highly anticipated total solar eclipse begins in the afternoon of April 8 at 2:01, with potential maximum visibility at 3:17, and ends at 4:30 p.m. Cloud cover will play a factor, of course. Therefore, we suggest picking up your child before 2:00 or after 4:30 p.m. to reduce any exposure.
