LONGMONT, Co. – On Monday, August 21, at 11:46 a.m., a total eclipse of the sun will be visible across parts of the United States – a rare event that has not occurred in the past 99 years. Here in Colorado, 93 percent of the sun will be eclipsed. Students from every grade level across all St. Vrain Valley Schools will step outside to observe this monumental event.
For viewing, all students and staff will be equipped with special eclipse-viewing safety glasses, provided by the St. Vrain Valley Schools’ Science Department.
This is a press release issued by the St. Vrain Valley School District to the Longmont Observer and is published as a public service.
