Important Notice: School Closure and Solar Eclipse Viewing

Attention Granville School District Parents and Guardians! Please see information related to the total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024 below.

School Closure for Professional Development:

  • On April 8, the Granville Schools will be closed for a professional development day. This date was moved from a later April date at the beginning of this school year. No school for students on April 8! 

Solar Eclipse Viewing Opportunity:

A total solar eclipse is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!  To make this celestial event memorable for our students, we have prepared the following:

  • Solar Eclipse Glasses: Each student will receive a pair of solar eclipse viewing glasses. These glasses were generously donated through a partnership between the Granville Education Foundation and the Granville Public Library.  We truly appreciate their support for these glasses and so much more they do for our schools!

  • 7th Grade Science Presentations: Our 7th-grade science classes are diligently working on informative presentations about the eclipse. These presentations will include a brochure with essential tips for safe eclipse viewing that will come home with each student.  

*Safety First:  While observing the solar eclipse, it’s crucial to follow safety guidelines. Encourage your child to use the provided glasses and avoid looking directly at the sun without protection. For more information, click Eclipse Parent Resources.
