The KY School for the Blind will have a delayed dismissal the day of the eclipse, Monday, August 21. The dismissal time will be 2:45 p.m. This is a delay of 15 minutes past the regular dismissal time of 2:30 p.m.
Middle and high school students and teachers may participate in instructional activities regarding the eclipse if proper safety protocols are followed. Each teacher should develop a plan and communicate that plan to the Principal. The plan should include which classes are going outside for instruction and the safety protocols being followed to ensure student and staff safety. We have appropriate glasses to be distributed.
An Opt-out form will be emailed out/ sent home with students today. Parents not wanting their middle or high school students to participate in outdoor activities must complete and return prior to the eclipse.
Additionally, all non-eclipse outdoor activities (e.g., recess, physical education) between 12:30 and 3 p.m. should be moved indoors.
If parents are requesting an excused absence to attend the eclipse, please contact Ms. Williams.
