Partial View of the Solar Eclipse
On Monday, August 21, 2017, Mississippi will enjoy a partial view of the solar eclipse beginning at 11:54 a.m. and ending at 1:45 p.m. This is the first total solar eclipse visible in the United States since 1979, and it must be viewed with proper eye protection (glasses with ISO 12312-2 protection level) to avoid any temporary or permanent eye damage. Regular or prescription sun glasses will not offer sufficient protection.
With the safety of our students in mind, Madison County Schools will follow the procedures outlined below during the eclipse period, click here to read more details.
