Awtrey’s Eclipse Plans

AWTREY SOLAR ECLIPSE PLANS

We are looking forward to Monday, August 21, for our solar eclipse viewing plans.  Below lists some details, and we welcome you to contact the school if you have any questions.

  1. Students received permission forms to receive parental permission to participate in the outdoor viewing plans.  These forms need to be returned to fifth period teachers this week. Solar Eclipse Permission Form
  2. Students who don’t return signed permission forms will participate in an indoor, virtual viewing activity in our theater.
  3. We welcome parents to join us for these activities, and we request that any parent who would like to participate arrive to school by 1:30 p.m.  Please first visit main office for visitor badge.
  4. We also request that any parent who will be checking their student out early pick up their student before 1:30 p.m.
  5. Students may have an excused absence for this day if they return a signed note from a parent.
  6. Students will be recorded as attending school for this day if they remain in school until 12:45 p.m.
  7. We have approved solar eclipse shades that our Student Council purchased from our scientific supplies vendor, and we have enough shades for our students, staff and a limited number of extra shades for parents.
  8. Students will review the safe wearing of these shades, during science classes this Friday, and they will also be engaged in an instructional activity to help prepare for the viewing.  Science classes will also have the students engage in a reflection activity after the event.
  9. While we will distribute extra shades for those parents who are able to attend, we recommend that parents bring their own viewing shades or alternative viewing device to ensure everyone can enjoy this experience, remembering we only have a limited number of extra shades for parents.
  10. Students who are participating in the indoor, virtual viewing activity will be dismissed to the theater at 1:40 p.m.
  11. For outdoor viewing, 6th graders will be dismissed outside at 1:45, 7th graders will be dismissed outside at 1:50, and 8th grade will be dismissed outside at 1:55.
  12. Students outside will enjoy this experience until after the total eclipse and returning to the building by 2:55.
  13. Students will continue with 6th and 7th periods after dismissal from this extended 5th period class, and all students will be dismissed at 5:00 p.m.
  14. Students participating in the outdoor viewing activity are recommended to bring a hat, water bottle, towel/small blanket, and sun screen with parent approval.
  15. We will be offering a hat day on this special day for $1.00 for students to wear their hats all day in school, and these funds will be returned to our Student Council to support their sponsoring of our shades purchase.  Hat day participation is not required, and students don’t need any extra money to participate in our viewing activities.

Thank you for your support of this special day for our students, and please contact the school if you have any questions or concerns.
