Welcome to RCSC!

On Monday, August 21 Rensselaer will experience a partial solar eclipse.  The eclipse will begin at 11:55 a.m., reach a maximum at 1:22 p.m. and end at 2:45 p.m.  This is a rare occurrence and an opportunity to discuss the magnificence of the natural world with students.  When the eclipse reaches its maximum, 89% of the sun will be blocked by the moon.

During the partialeclipse it will never be safe to look at the sun without proper eye protection.  While most of the sun will be blocked during the eclipse, looking at the sun can still cause irreversible damage to the eyes and even blindness.  We do not want to expose our students to this danger nor do we want to place our staff in a position where they may be liable for student injury.

Therefore all students are to remain inside the buildings from 12:00 noon until 2:45.

In Carbondale, IL the eclipse will be total.  During total eclipse students will be able to see the atmosphere of the sun which will not be visible during the partial eclipse.  Students can watch live-streaming of the eclipse at this site:

Should parents wish to keep their children home to watch the eclipse they will need to send a written request to the building principal.
