• Solar Eclipse

  • solar eclipseIn Norfolk, Virginia, the eclipse will begin at approximately 2:02 p.m. with its maximum view around 3:20 p.m. and lasting until about 4 p.m. Even with a partial eclipse, everyone must protect their eyes if they choose to view the eclipse. According to research, exposing your eyes to the sun without proper eye protection during a solar eclipse can cause “eclipse blindness” or retinal burns, also known as solar retinopathy. This exposure to the light can cause damage or even destroy cells in the retina.  

    With the eclipse coinciding with the time when many students are preparing to depart from their school locations or already traveling home, and to better ensure their safety, students will not report to school on Monday, April 8, 2024.

    Copies of independent learning activities will be sent home with students on Thursday, March 28, 2024, allowing ample time for preparation and anticipation!
