Dallas ISD prepares for total solar eclipse

Students will experience a once-in-a-lifetime celestial phenomenon on April 8 as a rare total solar eclipse passes over Dallas. Recognizing the significance of the day, Dallas ISD is committed to ensuring a safe and enriching experience for all students.

On April 8, there is an anticipated surge of visitors to Dallas. Parents and guardians should anticipate transportation and bus delays in high-traffic areas. Utilizing the district’s transportation app, Edulog Parent Portal, for real-time updates is strongly encouraged.

The Perot Museum of Nature and Science donated more than 170,000 solar viewing glasses for all students and employees in Dallas ISD. Parents and guardians are encouraged to talk to their students about the importance of wearing safety glasses as they are not just accessories, but essential tools to ensure their eyes are protected.
Those who wish to opt their student out of solar eclipse day events can do so by contacting their students’ school.

Educational opportunities
Through Dallas ISD’s STEM Environmental Education Center, local partners are helping students take advantage of this rare occasion by ensuring the day is a great educational opportunity for students. Leading up to the total solar eclipse, Carnegie Science astronomers are visiting 40 schools in the district. Several schools also received solar telescopes from the Junior League of Dallas to enhance their viewing experiences.
In the event of inclement weather, students will watch the eclipse live via the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse: Through the Eyes of NASA broadcast.
More resources including safety information, videos, lessons, and activities in English and Spanish, can be found on the district’s solar eclipse website.
