On Monday, April 8th, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, the United States, and Canada. A total eclipse is so rare that the last one to take place in Ohio was in 1806, and the next opportunity to see one will be in 2099. Euclid is in the direct path of this once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event, offering a front-row seat to history. Along with the excitement of the eclipse, there are safety concerns involved. The climax of the eclipse is estimated to occur approximately at 3:10 pm, during our usual dismissal times. Additionally, we are also expecting a high volume of out-of-town visitors in Euclid to appreciate the eclipse, which could cause traffic and communications issues. Remember to protect your vision by only viewing the eclipse with specialty-designed view eyewear. At this week’s Board of Education Meeting, the Euclid Schools Board of Education approved April 8th, 2024 as a Teacher Professional Development Inservice Day for Euclid Schools. School will not be in session that day and classes will resume from Spring Break on Tuesday, April 9th. We encourage all Euclid Schools families to take advantage of this awesome phenomenon and invite everyone to view the eclipse at the Euclid Eclipse Festival, which will be held at Euclid Community Stadium that day. #OneEuclid #SolarEclipseCLE
