Important Solar Eclipse Information

posted Aug 18, 2017, 12:20 PM by Shauna Bryan

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

On Monday, August 21, a solar eclipse will cross the United States with partial visibility in Arizona with its peak at 10:33 a.m.

 

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) states that at no time during the eclipse should a person look directly at the sun. Exposure of the retina to intense visible light causes damage to the eye’s light-sensitive rod and cone cells. The result is a loss of visual function that may be either temporary or permanent, depending on the severity of the damage. The risk to vision is significant because the associated injuries occur without any feeling of pain, and the visual effects do not occur for at least several hours after the damage is done.

 

For the safety of all students, all WESD schools will be on a mandatory rainy day schedule Monday, August 21. Recess and other outdoor activities will be canceled from 9:15 a.m. to noon to ensure the safety of our students.

 

We understand that this is an exciting and educational experience. If students and staff

plan on viewing the eclipse, we are recommending that teachers use the NASA livestream, https://www.nasa.gov/eclipselive.

 

Thank you for your understanding and support.

 

Sincerely,


Phil Liles

Principal

Arroyo School


Estimados Padres/Guardianes,

 

El lunes, 21 de agosto, un eclipse solar cruzará los Estados Unidos con visibilidad parcial en Arizona con su punto de mayor intensidad a las 10:33 a.m.

 

La Administración Nacional de la Aeronáutica y del Espacio (NASA por sus siglas en inglés) declara que en ningún momento durante el eclipse debe una persona mirar directamente al sol. El que la retina sea expuesta a luz visible intensa daña los bastones y conos del ojo que son sensibles a la luz. El resultado es la pérdida de funcionamiento visual que pudiese ser temporal o permanente, dependiendo en la gravedad del daño. El riesgo a la visión es significativo porque las lesiones asociadas ocurren sin ninguna sensación de dolor y los efectos visuales no ocurren hasta al menos varias horas después de que el daño se ha hecho.

 

Para la seguridad de todos los estudiantes, todas las escuelas de WESD estarán en un horario obligatorio de día lluvioso el lunes, 21 de agosto. Se cancelarán el recreo y otras actividades al aire libre desde las 9:15 a.m. hasta el mediodía para asegurar la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes.

 

Entendemos que esta es una experiencia emocionante y educativa. Si los estudiantes y el personal planean ver el eclipse, recomendamos que los maestros utilicen la transmisión en vivo de NASA, https://www.nasa.gov/eclipselive.

 

Gracias por su comprensión y apoyo.

 

Atentamente,

 

Phil Liles

Director
