We are thrilled to announce that Meramec Valley R-III School District will be hosting an Eclipse Extravaganza on April 8th, providing a unique opportunity for our students to experience and learn about the solar eclipse in a safe and engaging environment.

During the Eclipse Extravaganza, each school within our district will host a watch party where students will have the chance to view the solar eclipse through proper safety glasses and measures. Additionally, there will be various activities including dress-up contests, photo booths, and more to enhance the educational experience and create lasting memories for our students.

We understand that some parents may have concerns about their child viewing the solar eclipse, which is why we are offering an Opt-Out Form for those who prefer their child not to participate in the event. Please complete the Opt-Out Form and return it to your child's school by April 7th. Students not viewing the solar eclipse will be given an alternative activity in doors during the school-wide viewing period.

School principals and teachers will communicate specific details regarding the Eclipse Extravaganza at each school, including schedules, safety protocols, and additional activities planned for the day.

We are excited to provide this unique learning opportunity for our students and believe that the Eclipse Extravaganza will be a fun and educational experience for all involved. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact your child's school administration.
