Photo of a Solar EclipseA total eclipse of the sun occurs when the sun, moon, and earth are perfectly aligned. This can only occur during a new moon when the moon is positioned between the sun and the earth. A total solar eclipse will occur in parts of the United States on August 21, 2017. Florida will not be in the path (approximately 100 miles wide) of the total eclipse, but we will be able to view a partial solar eclipse starting shortly after 1:00 p.m. Students, parents, and teachers/staff should use caution and NEVER look directly at the sun without approved protective eye gear. Even normal sunglasses cannot protect your eyes from the damage the sun's rays can do to them.

On August 21, all public schools in Osceola County will move PE and recess activities inside after 1:00 p.m. Students and staff will be told to NOT look directly at the eclipse during class changes, dismissal, or on their route home without protective eyewear.
