School to be cancelled for Solar Eclipse Event Solar Eclipse

The Magoffin County School Board members and administrators have decided, in the interest of student safety, to dismiss classes on Monday, August 21st in observance of the solar eclipse. Superintendent Scott Helton and school officials made the determination to cancel classes since the eclipse will occur toward the end of the day when buses are lining up to transport children home.

“At a time when it would be impossible to keep the eyes of all students from looking at the harmful rays during the eclipse, we felt it best to keep them and their vision safe, which is our primary concern. Most of Kentucky will experience the eclipse and like many other districts in our area, we decided that it was in the best interest of our students to cancel all scheduled classes on Monday, August 21st.”

Though students will not be at school when the eclipse takes place, teachers, parents, and students are encouraged to learn more about this unique event, which last occurred 99 years ago, by researching and discovering lesson plans that will help them understand and learn about the historic and scientific implications of the solar eclipse.
