CIS students view solar eclipse

Campbellsville elementary, middle and high school students were a part of history on Monday, Aug. 21.

 

Students, administrators and staff members viewed the solar eclipse in the afternoon, from several locations.

 

This year’s total eclipse was the first seen in Kentucky since 1869, and all parts of the Commonwealth will see at least 90 percent of the sun obscured by the moon.

 

All students and staff members were given the opportunity to view the eclipse. Those who chose to view the eclipse were given NASA-approved safety glasses.

 

At CES, students viewed the eclipse in their classrooms, in the cafeteria and on the track.

 

At CMS, students saw the eclipse on the CHS football field.

 

And at CHS, students viewed the eclipse on the football practice field, at Hamilton Auditorium and on the front steps of the school.

 

All precautions were taken to ensure students viewed the historic moment safely.

 

And extra personnel were added on each bus to ensure students got home safely at the end of the day.
