IMPORTANT CHANGE to Solar Eclipse Announcement

In preparation for Monday’s eclipse staff at the schools were reviewing the safety labels on the glasses purchased.  It was determined that while all glasses had the necessary labels, it was found that some had not been purchased from vendors that were listed on the NASA approved list.  After discussions with district and school administration, it was determined that we were not comfortable in being able to ensure the safety and well-being of all students throughout the day, particularly the afternoon dismissal and transportation time home. 

 

Therefore school will be canceled for Monday August 21, 2017.  This day will be added to the end of the year as a make-up day.  I apologize for the late notice but the safety of our students is of the utmost importance. 

 

R. Anthony Strong, Ed.D

Superintendent


Important Information--Solar Eclipse eclipse

On August 21, 2017 we will experience a total solar eclipse, an event that hasn’t occurred over the U.S. mainland since 1979.  A total solar eclipse, which is when the moon completely covers the sun, will occur across 14 states in the continental U.S. along a 70-mile-wide swath of the country.  While Pendleton County is not located in this area, we will still be able to view the partial solar eclipse. 

This event will be an extraordinary educational opportunity for our students.  Some of our schools will have special events and activities related to the eclipse, and more information will be sent home from the respective schools. 

While this event is extremely exciting for our students, we must also acknowledge the importance of proper eye safety.  The eclipse must be viewed only through proper eclipse glasses.  All schools will provide students with proper viewing glasses that have been approved.

Employees of the Year Nominations Now Being Accepted employee

We can all think of someone while we were in school that made a difference to us.  Most of us might remember a particular teacher or instructional assistant that helped us learn.  To some it might have been the lunch lady that gave an extra scoop of cheesy macaroni, or that bus driver that waited the extra second as we were running out the door late, or the custodian that helped us unlock a jammed locker.  Maybe some remember a principal or district administrator that encouraged us on a test or at an event.  Regardless of who it was, we want to honor them for what they have done for our children and our schools.
