Solar Eclipse Update

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope this message finds you well. I would like to inform you that Benton-Carroll-Salem Schools will be closed on April 8th due to a rare and exciting event—a solar eclipse. On this day, the population in Ottawa County is expected to double as people gather to witness this natural phenomenon. I have attended many meetings with law enforcement, educators, and the Emergency Management Agency, so to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, we have decided to close the school for that day.

We will be providing special eclipse-viewing glasses for each student to safely observe the eclipse. Additionally, we will send home educational materials for your child to complete, allowing them to learn more about this celestial event. This will extend spring break by 1 day. School will now resume on Tuesday, April 9th.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter, and we hope that you and your family enjoy the rare spectacle of the solar eclipse.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out.

Best regards,

Cathy Bergman
