On the afternoon of Monday April 8, 2024, a partial solar eclipse will make its way across Somerset County and the Delmarva Peninsula between 2:06 PM and 4:34 PM. This historic event will take place during school dismissal time, and poses potential safety risks.

We encourage parents and guardians to speak with their children about safety precautions regarding the eclipse. Remind your child to never look at the sun without special eye protection during an eclipse as it could cause permanent vision damage.

NASA has very specific information on their website relating to safety during an eclipse. Click here to learn more.

Families and students can safely watch the eclipse via live stream on NASA's website.

Please be safe while enjoying this exciting event.
