On Monday August 21, 2017, Williamsfield Schools will experience the solar eclipse. This event is being called “The Great American Solar Eclipse,” because it is the first time since 1918 a solar eclipse will be visible on a path across the entire continental United States. Our school has purchased eclipse-safe viewing glasses for students, faculty and staff. Safety is our top priority. We will take all precautionary measures to make this experience both safe and enjoyable.
Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun. Students will not be permitted to look at the un-eclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through unfiltered cameras, telescopes, binoculars, or other optical devices, with or without glasses. Because of these safety concerns, a parent or guardian signature on this sheet is required in order for students to participate in the event using the eclipse glasses. Students whose parents do not complete this form will not be able to attend.
