School-Day Extended 45 Minutes on August 21 due to Solar Eclipse

Due to the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017,  the Cobb County School District will delay dismissal of elementary, middle and high school students by 45 minutes. 

The peak time to experience the solar eclipse falls during our regularly scheduled elementary school dismissal time.  Since student safety is always our first priority so we will delay dismissal to ensure that neither students nor employees are on the roadways during the time of the eclipse.   Subsequently, high schools and middle schools will delay dismissal as well.

Schools will be provided with further guidance and instructional resources as appropriate.  Parents are welcome to pick-up their child at the typical dismissal time if needed.

For more information regarding the solar eclipse visit the National Weather Service at

Thanks to 7th grader Brian N., who wrote an award winning science essay, the entire school will be able to view the eclipse with special solar viewing glasses! Way to go Brian and Mrs. Morrison, his science teacher! Read his essay!
