GCPS Schools will Delay Dismissal by 1 Hour
Here at Centerville, students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will have an opportunity for an outside viewing using protective solar shades. Students in grades K, 1, and 2 will view the eclipse via live-stream on the web.
While schools plan to provide an opportunity for a safe, educational experience, we understand that some parents may not want their children to participate in a live viewing of the eclipse. In order for your student to participate in an outdoor viewing of the solar eclipse, please click here, print the form, sign it, and have your student return it to his or her teacher by Wednesday, August 16, 2017.
Students who do not return this form signed by a parent/guardian will complete an alternate activity from inside the school building during the eclipse. We look forward to working together to make this once-in-a-lifetime event meaningful for GCPS students!
