With the upcoming solar eclipse on April 8th, 2024, we want to ensure everyone is well-informed about our procedures to guarantee the safety of all our students.  While Holmes County is not in the path of totality, our area may still experience partial eclipse conditions.


No students will be permitted to watch the eclipse outside. Safety is our priority. We will be using this event as a teaching and learning opportunity and teachers will have access to a NASA live stream of the event if they choose to share it with their students.


All outdoor activities will be moved inside during the eclipse timeframe (12:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m.)


Bus drivers are provided with safety information to help ensure the children have a safe journey home.


Schools will hold students inside until the latest possible time for dismissal.


Parents always have the option to pick their children up. Please ensure the designated person is named in the Parent Portal for pick-up and that the parent/guardian is honoring the school's previously posted early checkout windows and procedures. Absences will follow normal procedures.


All after-school activities will begin as scheduled AFTER 3:30 p.m.


If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact your child's principal. Thank you for your support as we strive to enjoy this memorable event in the safest manner possible for our students.
