Please be advised that on Monday, August 21 and Tuesday, August 22 the Cathedral is hosting events for our new Bishop. These events will require use of the school parking lot. If your child will be staying for Extended Care you may need to park on the street to walk in and sign your child out. We anticipate that the parking lot will be full. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Dear Friends and Family of Sacred Heart Cathedral School,
As you know, there will be a solar eclipse visible over most of the United States on Monday, August 21. While our school is south of the complete blackout zone, we will still experience much of it. This is an excellent opportunity to teach our students about science and the wonder of God’s creation. With guidance from our Diocese, this is what will be happening at Sacred Heart Cathedral School on Monday.
The eclipse will occur between 12:03 and 3:02 with 1:35 being the maximum coverage. Depending on cloud cover, it may be very visible or just dark. Students will be reminded in their classes they should not look directly at the sun, as this can cause serious damage to their eyes or even blindness. Please reinforce this at home.
Proper eye protection (approved NASA eclipse glasses) is the only safe option. Sunglasses do not work. Proper eye protection has been purchased for our students in grades 3-8. If you are allowing your child to participate in this you have signed and returned a permission slip. If you do not sign the permission slip your child will stay inside until dismissal. Students in grades 3-5 will go outside for a ten-fifteen minute viewing around 1:25. Middle school students will also go outside around 1:25 for a 20-30 minute viewing.
All students are allowed to wear caps/hat when they are outside. Younger students may wear ball caps during the day as they will not be participating in the eclipse. PE classes and our recess will not go outside after 11:45.
Dismissal will be delayed 10 minutes, with dismissal starting at 2:50. The walkers will be escorted across the street at the end of dismissal, so please plan accordingly. Extended care does not begin until 3:15-3:20 so the students will be fine since this is after the eclipse.
If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us.
