Dear Parents/Guardians,

Monday, August 21st, a solar eclipse will occur between the hours of 1:00-4:00 PM.  This is a rare event and one the Hamilton staff would like to use as a teachable moment.  As a result, each classroom teacher will share a structured science lesson about the eclipse with students.  Part of this lesson will be a fifteen minute observation of the eclipse. DURING THIS OBSERVATION PERIOD ALL STUDENTS WILL BE WEARING NASA APPROVED PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR.  This eyewear was purchased by the Hamilton PTO for students.  Students will be closely monitored by faculty and staff helping to ensure their safety.  All afternoon recess will be held indoors.  This will help ensure students do not look at the eclipse without proper eyewear.  

If you do not want your child participating in the above activity, please contact the school office and they will be kept inside.  The office number is 240-6800 ext. 14805.
