On Monday, August 21, 2017, The Great American Eclipse will occur. In San Diego, it will be visible from 9:07 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. The eclipse will reach its maximum point of visibility in San Diego at 10:23 a.m.

 

To ensure the safety of our students 

All students have been instructed not to look directly at the sun during the eclipse. Students will have an eclipse shadow viewer, which they made in sciences classes, with them on Monday. Students will be held in their 3rd period class or Pod during break. Students will eat their lunch in the MPR, and the blacktop will be restricted. All PE classes will be indoors from 9-12. Please reinforce with your child not to stare directly at the eclipse. 

 

Please ensure your student understands eclipse safety protocol prior to Monday and emphasize the danger of looking at the sun.

 

On Monday, recess and lunch supervisors will be instructed to watch for students who may purposely look at the sun, and stop such behavior.

 

Be aware, if you chose to keep your child home on Monday due to the eclipse, this will be considered an unexcused absence.  

 

Thank you for your assistance as we prepare for the day!

El lunes 21 de agosto de 2017, ocurrirá el eclipse llamado, The Great American Eclipse. En San Diego, será visible desde las 9:07 a.m. hasta las 11:45 a.m. El eclipse alcanzará su punto máximo de visibilidad en San Diego a las 10:23 a.m.
 

Para asegurar la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes: Se les ha dado instrucciones a todos los estudiantes de que este lunes no vean directamente al sol durante el  eclipse.  Los estudiantes podran usar este lunes un visor de sombra que hicieron en sus clases de ciencias.  Los estudiantes se quedaran dentro  de sus clases de tercer periodo durante su descanso (break).  Se les dara su almuerzo en la cafeteria y no se les permitira estar afuera en el patio.  Todas las clases de educacion fisica se llevaran a cabo adentro durante las horas de 7am a 12pm.  Por favor recuerdele y digale a su estudiante que no debe mirar directamente al sol durante el eclipse.

 

Asegúrese de que su estudiante entienda el protocolo de seguridad del eclipse antes del lunes y hable sobre la importancia del peligro de mirar al sol directamente.

 

El lunes, los supervisores de recreo y almuerzo estarán vigilando que los estudiantes no miren hacia el sol directamente.

Tenga en cuenta, si decide mantener a su hijo en casa el lunes debido al eclipse, esto se considerará una ausencia inexcusada.

 

¡Gracias por su ayuda mientras nos preparamos para el día del eclipse!

Principal Smedley is very excited to provide the monthly Middle Years News Letter for parents.

The purpose of the newsletter is to show parents how to improve their children's school success- and behavior-during the middle years. 

Middle grade children go through dramatic changes and desperately need their parents’ support. Many parents want to help, but aren’t sure what to do. With Middle Years, this will provide you with articles that will help:

  • understand their middle graders’ behavior
  • build respect, responsibility, empathy, and more
  • support homework and study skills
  • stay involved—middle-school style
  • set age-appropriate rules and expectations
  • promote health and safety
  • emphasize the importance of education
