  • Solar Eclipse Information (Different Dismissal Time on Aug. 21)
    Dr. Gilreath, Superintendent of Schools, has decided that Whitfield County School System will extend our school day on Monday, August 21 by thirty (30) minutes due to the total solar eclipse.
     
    Some basic information on the eclipse (taken from GSBA:RMS):
    • On August 21, 2017, a total eclipse will shadow a 65 mile-wide path through 14 states, beginning in Oregon and exiting the South Carolina coast. It is estimated that, weather permitting, 500 million people will stand in the moon’s shadow on that day. The entire event will touch the U.S. for only 1 hour, 33 minutes and 16.8 seconds.
    •  
    • A solar eclipse is a lineup of the Sun, the Moon, and Earth. The moon, directly between the Sun and Earth, casts a shadow on our planet. If you are in the dark part of that shadow, you will see a total eclipse. If you are in the light part, you will see a partial eclipse. Everyone in the continental U.S. will see at least a partial eclipse.
    •  
    • For Georgians, the only place to see the total eclipse is the very northeast corner of Georgia. The centerline path of the eclipse just barely touches the state in Rabun and Stephens County. The general Atlanta area should see a partial eclipse in the range of 97 percent. The majority of the State of Georgia will be in the range of totality (NE corner) to 90% partial.
    The following are links to various resources on the eclipse:

    Here are a few key safety tips:

    • Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the Sun. (Ordinary sunglasses transmit many thousands of times more light than special-purpose eclipse glasses!)
    • The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters (“eclipse glasses” or handheld viewers).
    • Seek expert advice before using a solar filter with a camera, telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device.
    • Never look at the Sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device while using eclipse glasses or a handheld solar viewer.
    • You must always use safe solar filters to view the Sun directly.

  • Summer Reading – Literacy for Life!

    Whether it’s reading, writing, speaking, listening, or deciphering, each day provides opportunities for us to deepen our literacy skills. The provided calendars can be used during the summer to keep those literacy skills sharp and to be ready to learn, grow, and share--even when school is not in session. We encourage you to use the calendars and mark off the activities you do. Each student who completes and returns these to school can redeem them in their school media center for a small treat!
