stages of eclipse

Zebra Families, 

The Great North American Eclipse is coming April 8, 2024… and we want to see it! According to the National Weather Service, on average, any given location on Earth is estimated to see a total solar eclipse only every 360 to 410 years. Saying this event is “rare” may be taking it too lightly. For some, it is a once-in-a-lifetime event. The next total solar eclipse viewable in the contiguous United States will be more than 20 years later, on August 22 and 23, 2044. The next total solar eclipse viewable in Oklahoma and Arkansas will be August 12, 2045. 

Claremore Public Schools has developed plans to make this event safe, educational, and fun! 

We have ordered solar eclipse viewing glasses so the district can observe during the eclipse. The glasses comply with the ISO 12312-2 international safety standards. Specifics are listed on the attached permission form. 

To participate, parents/guardians must sign and return the attached PERMISSION FORM for their child(ren) to their teacher by April 5, 2024.

  • WRJH - return to 5th hour teacher.
