Dear Parents and Guardians,
Monday, August 21st is the first day of school in the Clairton City School District. Breakfast begins at 7:30 am and classes begin at 7:50 am. August 21st is also the day of a Solar Eclipse of the sun. The solar eclipse is projected to occur directly over the Pittsburgh area at approximately the same time as our regularly scheduled dismissal time of 2:44 pm. To ensure the safety of our students the CCSD Board of Directors approved releasing students at 11:30 am to ensure they are home safely prior to the beginning of the eclipse. It has been strongly advised not to look directly at the sun without proper eye protection throughout the eclipse (1:00 pm to 5:00 pm). I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you but the safety and best interest of our students is our priority.
We look forward to welcoming our students back to school on Monday.
Ginny Hunt, Ed.D
