Eclipse Eye Safety

On August 21, 2017, our students will be able to experience the first total eclipse, where the moon will pass between the sun and Earth and block all of the sun, in the continental U.S. in 38 years. The total solar eclipse will take place at 1:28 p.m (depending on exact location within the county). Wilson County happens to be located in the direct path of totality. This means that for approximately 2 minutes and 35 seconds we will experience darkness due to the shadow (umbra) cast by the moon.

Wilson County Schools is dedicated to providing memorable life opportunities for each of our students. We strive to create an environment of engagement and encourage though provoking curiosity. The district has provided viewing glasses for all students and teachers are planning enriching activities for students in all grades!
