Eclipse Reminder

From our Superintendent Ryan Heraty on the April 8th eclipse

Dear Lamoille South Families, 

As you are aware, a rare event will be occurring on April 8th with a total eclipse. We have received direction from local law enforcement to close on April 8th due to the influx of visitors to Vermont. We appreciate your understanding and hope this day can be celebrated as an opportunity to engage in a discussion around scientific wonder. 

If you are looking for resources to discuss this with your child, NASA is the premier expert and they have a great link here. Within that link under “Where and When” they have a great Eclipse Explore simulation worth exploring. NWS Burlington has a link as well, more focused on the weather and climatology, including a presentation recently given to the Fletcher Free Library.

Also, eclipse glasses will be distributed to every student. 

Thank you,

Ryan Heraty, Superintendent
