Eclipse
  • News

On Monday, April 8, there will be a solar eclipse in our area. Out of an abundance of caution, we will be delaying dismissal by approximately 15 minutes for elementary schools and Marshall Middle School. We want to ensure the safety of our students and staff by avoiding any risks associated with looking directly at the sun during the eclipse. The postponed dismissal will not prevent parents from picking up their children.
