Due to the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, Troup County School System will delay dismissal of elementary, middle and high school students.
The peak time to experience the solar eclipse falls during our regularly scheduled elementary school dismissal time. Since student safety is our first priority we will start the day on time and delay dismissal to ensure that neither students nor employees are on the roadways during the peak time of the eclipse. Subsequently, high schools and middle schools will delay dismissal as well.
Schools have been provided with educational resources for indoor learning because looking directly at the solar eclipse as it transpires will cause severe eye damage. It is a system-wide expectation that students and staff remain indoors for safety reasons.
If a student is absent or receives early check-out, an excused absence will be granted with a written consent from the parent or guardian. Parents should follow their child's school procedures for early check-out times.
