Eclipse on Monday, August 21

We are very excited to have your student back at GWMS on Thursday, August 17, 2017. On August 21, 2017 there will be a solar eclipse that is viewable throughout the continental United States. We would like to offer all students and staff the opportunity to view this eclipse in a safe manner. The district will provide protective glasses to all students that have returned a signed permission form to view the eclipse outside at GWMS. If you would like to have your student view the eclipse, please return the attached form by Friday, August 18, 2017 to your student's 7th period teacher. Due to the safety concerns, students that do not have the form signed and returned will not be allowed to view the eclipse. We look forward to providing this rare experience to your student at GWMS.
