School Day Extended for 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 scheduled elementary school dismissal time. Since student safety is always our first priority, we will start the day on time and 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.

We will provide schools with further guidance and instructional resources as appropriate. If necessary, parents are welcome to pick up their child at the typical dismissal time.
