Eclipse Glasses

posted Aug 18, 2017, 8:29 AM by Tobie Jones   [ updated Aug 18, 2017, 8:32 AM ]

Solar Eclipse

posted Aug 14, 2017, 10:53 AM by Tobie Jones

On August 21, 2017, there will be a total solar eclipse. In our area, the solar eclipse will occur at approximately 2:37 pm. Since the event occurs at the end of the school day and in order to ensure a safe dismissal, the expected dismissal time for primary and elementary schools will be delayed until 2:55 pm followed by middle and high school dismissal at the normal time of 3:05 pm. Parents/guardians will be permitted to sign your child out of school early on August 21st; however, we ask that students check out by 1:30 pm so that the schools can have adequate time to transition to the eclipse activities. Students who check out early will be excused and allowed to make up work, but the absence will count against perfect attendance for the year. Commerce City Schools has purchased eclipse-safe viewing glasses for all students and employees. Permission forms will be sent home with students this week, and the completed sheets must be returned to school by Friday, August 18.
