Lincoln County Schools will be extending the instructional day on Monday August 21st to coincide with the solar eclipse.
The duration of the eclipse for Lincoln County is from 1:02pm-3:55pm. The instructional day for Monday August 21st will extend to 4:00pm for all schools. Since prolonged viewing of a solar eclipse with the unaided eye could cause serious eye injuries, our goal is to ensure students are not on school buses during the eclipse.
The eclipse peak will be at 2:30pm when the moon obscures 96.5% of the sun.
As normal, buses will leave from the middle school first. Students will arrive home roughly one (1) hour later than normal.
