Someone bought 50 pairs of glasses for the middle/high school. I teach at a small school.

We are taking the kids out in shifts during the peak time. Our area is going to get about 80 percent.

Our district has decided the same as Teacher_twins.

My district said we cannot take our kids outside to watch the eclipse, even with glasses. But they know a lot of people are going to want to see it so they have made Monday an "optional" attendance day for students. Teachers are still expected to be at work but students will not be penalized if they or their parents decide not to go to school.

I am in an area of totality.

Several area districts are canceling school that day. My district insists that we stay in. They have approved glasses for us. Parents have the option to opt out of their kids viewing outside -- they could stay inside and watch it on tv.

I think it will be ok -- but don't look forward to making sure kids keep those glasses on. I'm in lower elementary.

Greetings! I'm a high school teacher from California, and we are gearing up for Monday's eclipse. Our high school and some of our elementary schools have approved solar eclipse viewers and we are tailoring lessons to go along with the event. We will have about 80% coverage of the sun on Monday morning.

We are finding out that our district may deny us from being outside during the peak time of the eclipse (this decision hasn't been made yet, but it will be in the next 24 hours).

I'm just wondering if anyone here has a policy set by your district regarding this event, if you are in a region of the USA where part of the eclipse can be viewed. Any comments and feedback would be greatly appreciated.
