Chesterfield County School District announces e-Learning Day on April 8 due to the solar eclipse

Chesterfield County, South Carolina – One school district in South Carolina has decided that students won’t have to go to school for the upcoming solar eclipse.

Even though the solar eclipse on April 8 will only cover 77 percent of the sun in Chesterfield County, the Chesterfield County School District has decided that students and staff will have an e-learning day instead. Chesterfield County is quite a distance, about 600 miles, from where the eclipse will be fully visible. This decision was shared on Facebook by the school authorities earlier this week, mentioning that students should participate in online learning activities during this time.

It’s interesting to note that Chesterfield County almost saw the eclipse in its entirety back in August 2017, with nearly complete coverage. At that time, the total eclipse followed along a route close to the Interstate 26, cutting across South Carolina.

For anyone thinking of watching the eclipse, regardless of its phase, it’s important to put safety first. Experts emphasize the need for proper eye protection, recommending the use of specific solar filter glasses to prevent any harm.

This is the Chesterfield County School District announcement on Facebook:

Due to the upcoming solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, Chesterfield County School District will operate as an eLearning Day for all students and staff.

On this eLearning Day, all students will be expected to engage in online learning activities, using either their Chromebook or student learning activities. Teachers will provide detailed instructions and support to ensure that learning continues seamlessly despite the unique circumstances. Office hours for teachers will be 9:00 – 11:00 am and 12:00-2:00 pm.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in making this eLearning Day a successful experience for our students in Chesterfield County School District.
