Solar Eclipse

Dear Temperance Parents and Families,
I write this letter to pass along information regarding the solar eclipse that will take place the afternoon of Monday, August 21, 2017. Amherst County Public Schools have decided not to allow students to view the eclipse while at school due to safety concerns. All students will remain in the building and no outside activities will take place during the afternoon of August 21, 2017.

Amherst County Public Schools have extended the school day by 15 minutes on August 21st. Dismissal time on this day for Temperance Elementary School will be 4:00 p.m. Please note that buses will deliver students 15 minutes later on this day.

If parents wish, they will be allowed to "check" their children out of school for a school-approved, instructional opportunity. The half day absence (beginning at noon) will be excused.

Please contact me if you have any questions.


Mike O’Brien,
