This is Tierra Antigua’s Solar Eclipse plan for Monday, August 21, 2017. 

  • There will be no outdoor recess.
  • Teachers will close the blinds in their classrooms.
  • When escorting students outside for specials, teachers will direct students to cover their eyes and direct them not to look at the sun.
  • Any outside activities have to be approved by the administration first.

 

Below is more information and resources provided by Albuquerque Public Schools.  

 

GUIDELINES and RESOURCES for the SOLAR ECLIPSE

While eclipse viewing is exciting and an engaging activity for students, it is important to remember that serious eye damage can happen if anyone looks directly at the sun at any time, even during a total eclipse.  Teachers are aware of the safety issues that surround viewing an eclipse and carefully plan and follow the instructions and safety guidelines provided by the sources suggested to prevent any accidents.

The eclipse will start in Albuquerque on Monday, August 21st, at 10:21 am, peak at 11:45 am, and complete at 1:13 pm.  Between 11:30 am and 12:15 pm, approximately 74% of the sun’s surface will be obscured by the moon’s shadow. Please note that the only acceptable eye protection are Eclipse Viewing Glasses, or a pinhole camera (links to making a simple camera are provided below).  No other form of eyewear is acceptable, no exceptions!

ATTACHMENT: Eclipse Safety from NASA  Safe_Viewing_of_Eclipse.docx

Please adhere to the following instructions:

  • Anyone who is going to be outside to view the eclipse during the time frame listed above is required to have eye protection, as described above.  Those who do not have either of these forms of eye protection will NOT be allowed outside to view the eclipse.
  • See separate entry on Native American Observance of a Solar Eclipse. 

The following links are provided for your information regarding the eclipse, safety, path of totality, and alternate viewing methods via television and livestream web sites.

 

 https://www.fi.edu/websites-on-2017-solar-eclipse – Please view the short video “Fly With the Eclipse Shadow” which is an illustration on how the moon’s shadow will travel across the globe and the US mainland from city to city
 If you choose to view the eclipse from indoors, these are some options available to you:

Native American Observance of a Solar Eclipse

As the eclipse day comes closer and dubbed the greatest solar event in a hundred years on August 21, 2017, we would like to notify you that the school district will observe this phenomenon by respecting the cultures and traditions of the Native Americans by recommending the following:

        1. If you would like for your child to participate in general school activities during the eclipse please be cognizant about wearing recommended eyewear, caution your children to not look at the eclipse without the appropriate eyewear,

        2.Parents teach their children about this great phenomenon, relative to traditional teachings and customs about the significance of the eclipse,

        3.One of the ways Native Americans respect the eclipse is not viewing the eclipse, but rather; adults and children were/are taught to come inside and sit quietly without eating or drinking until the eclipse passed, then afterward resumed their daily routines and activities,

       4.For a lunar eclipse children and adults were/are taught to sit up and observe the eclipse respectfully by not laying and sleeping, eating and drinking were/are also discouraged until the eclipse passed,

 

  A resource for describing the Navajo perspective on a solar eclipse is a children's book written and illustrated by Baje Whitethorne titled; Sunpainters: Eclipse of the Navajo Sun.

Dear Parents,

 

Due to the amount of students at Tierra Antigua we had to make some changes to our drop off and pick up procedures. 

 

In the morning, ONLY buses, school staff, kindergarten and handicap vehicles will be allowed to enter the north side. No parent parking is allowed in the bus/staff area at any time. 

 

In the afternoon, Kindergarten parents, and handicapped labeled vehicles, will be able to drive up the back of the school (north side) for pick-up of kindergarten students and handicap parking. You will then exit to the right and exit the way you came. Kindergarten parents must have their pick up information displayed so that staff can let them into the kinder loop to pick up their students. Gates will not be opened until 3:30.

 

First through 5th grade students will still be dropped off and picked up in the same location on the south side.  Please note: there will be no access from the south side, drop off/pick up area, to the front of the building.  Traffic will be blocked. If you need to come to the office you will have to park and walk in.

 

Remember to stay within the correct lane of traffic.  Please be patient when dropping off or picking up your students as the staff is working hard to assure the safety of all students.  We strongly recommend adding extra time as the area around this school is very congested during drop off and pick up times.

 

Thank you for your support student safety!!
