solar eclipseA total eclipse is scheduled for April 8, 2024, stretching from Southern Ontario to Newfoundland and Labrador, with the rest of Canada witnessing a partial eclipse. Our area will only experience a partial blockage of the sun as we are not in the path of the total eclipse.

The solar eclipse will take place between 1:00pm – 3:10pm (CST) on April 8th, with the sun reaching maximum coverage around 2:00pm. Therefore, schools will be in session, but breaks will be adjusted accordingly.

Leading up to the eclipse date, students will have the opportunity to learn more about this rare celestial event. Additionally, resources on safely observing a solar eclipse are available from the Northwestern Health Unit.
