Solar Eclipse • April 8, 2024

There will be a total solar eclipse over Texas on April 8, 2024. On that day students at each Spring Hill ISD campus will have a structured outdoor viewing opportunity. SHISD will provide students with specialized eye protection for solar viewing. Students will also take part in lessons and activities associated with the eclipse prior to and during this rare event.
What is a Solar Eclipse?
A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun. People viewing the eclipse from locations where the Moon’s shadow completely covers the Sun – known as the path of totality – will experience a total solar eclipse. The sky will darken, as if it were dawn or dusk. Weather permitting, people along the path of totality will see the Sun’s corona, or outer atmosphere, which is usually obscured by the bright face of the Sun.
We at Spring Hill ISD view the solar eclipse as a unique learning opportunity for our students.
