Not viewing the Solar Eclipse outside on Monday

Dear Parents,                                                              

 

 

Dear Parents,

Monroe Primary was planning on allowing those with permission forms to view the solar eclipse on Monday August 21st. We have been preparing for this by pre-ordering  ISO NASA certified glasses through Amazon over the summer.  Unfortunately, the Amazon supplier has failed to provide the necessary documentation to prove that they are actually certified, despite the description and markings on the glasses.  Due to this uncertainty we feel it is in the best interest of our students to not take any chances with their safety.  The students will have the opportunity to view it live as we will be streaming it on NASA’s website from inside the classrooms.  We were excited about the possibility of viewing this first hand, but your child’s safety is paramount to us.

Sincerely,

Kathy Gall

 

Monroe Primary Principal
