Archdiocesan Schools to Release Students Early for Eclipse

The Archdiocese of Miami announced that their elementary and high school students will be dismissed early on Monday, August 21st due to the solar eclipse event taking place that day.

Students will be released at 11:30 a.m.

It’s unclear whether Miami-Dade Public Schools and Broward County Public Schools will follow the same procedures.

According to NASA, the last solar eclipse that was viewed from the United States was in 1979, and won’t happen again until 2023.

Eye safety is encouraged during a total solar eclipse, as looking directly at the sun during an eclipse can damage the eyes.
