Eclipse Safety Information

District Issues Solar Eclipse Safety Information for Employees, Parents & Students

August 15, 2017

Polk County Public Schools has issued safety information for parents, employees and students in advance of the upcoming solar eclipse.

Polk County will experience a partial solar eclipse on Aug. 21.

During this event, the moon will cover a large portion of the sun. In Polk County, the eclipse will begin at 1:18 p.m. and end at 4:14 p.m., with maximum coverage of the sun occurring at 2:50 p.m.

The eclipse poses numerous learning opportunities, but also several dangers. Looking directly at the sun during an eclipse, even for a short time, can cause permanent vision damage.

To minimize the risk to students, Polk County Public Schools will move all outdoor activities, such as athletic practices, band rehearsals and after-school programs, indoors between the hours of 1:15 and 4:30 p.m. Dismissal times will not be effected.

Children who are outside during these times for other reasons, such as for pickup, will also be moved indoors.
In addition to these precautions, student absences on the day of the eclipse will be excused.

The school district is also emphasizing, both to its employees and parents, that eyewear must meet specific NASA-issued requirements in order to offer sufficient protection for viewing the eclipse. Sunglasses and homemade devices do not meet these requirements, which can be viewed here https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-recommends-safety-tips-to-view-the-august-solar-eclipse.

Transportation-related employees, particularly bus drivers, are being instructed to use extreme caution during the eclipse to avoid distracted drivers and pedestrians. School-based employees and parents should also use caution, especially during school dismissal and while driving on or near school campuses.

Bus drivers will also be warning bus riders about the dangers of looking directly at the partially obscured sun.
District staff will call and email parents via SchoolMessenger to remind them that outdoor activities will be moved indoors during the eclipse, that they should use caution while driving during the eclipse, and that they should talk with their children about the dangers of looking directly at the sun.

The Patriots will continue to sell the red and navy t-shirts with the C.P.E. logo; however, we have added a royal blue shirt this year that will be on sale during Orientation. We are excited about our new updated design! We will introduce red in this design during the 2018-2019 school year. The students will love this new updated design! Reminder – Shirt colors are red, navy and royal blue:) We stay away from white because it tends to turn yellow or is stained by December.
