Dear Parent and/or Guardian,


            As you know, Cheatham County Schools will be closed on Monday, August 21, 2017 for the Solar Eclipse.  Today, your child will bring home a pair of approved glasses provided by Cheatham County Schools.  These glasses are not a toy and should be used with adult supervision.  If they are scratched, full protection is not guaranteed. Using damaged eclipse shades can result in severe eye injury.

            To protect your child’s eyes from solar radiation, please make sure that he/she wears the solar eclipse shades when looking at ANY PART of the sun, no matter how small.

            Additionally, this link from NASA provides additional information about how to view the solar eclipse safely:

            Enjoy this momentous event with your family, and we looking forward to seeing you child back at CCCHS on Tuesday, August 22, 2017.
