    Get Ready for the 2024 Solar Eclipse

    A solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the Sun and Earth. As the Moon blocks the Sun's light, it casts a shadow on part of the Earth. When the Moon blocks all the Sun's light, it is a total eclipse.

    SAFETY FIRST: Looking at the intense light from the sun, even for just a few seconds, can cause permanent damage to the retina – part of the eye directly responsible for vision. Exposing your eyes to the sun without proper eye protection during a solar eclipse can cause retinal burns called solar retinopathy.

    CCS is providing eclipse glasses to all CCS students that will be sent home before spring break. Post a selfie to our Instagram page wearing your glasses! Use the hashtag: #TotalEclipseCCS
