We will be experiencing a solar eclipse later today and all CVS schools will take the following precautions:  

 Students and staff will not go outside from 1:30 p.m. to the end of the school day.

If needed, window shades/blinds may be closed in areas where the sun might be visible.

Because the final stages of the eclipse will occur during and after dismissal, we will remind all students and staff in announcements about the potential eye damage that could result from looking directly at the sun, even with sunglasses.

Any after-school practices or activities taking place during the solar eclipse will be held indoors.
