Solar Eclipse: On Monday, August 21, 2017, for the first time since 1918, a solar eclipse will be visible on a path across the United States. Carl Junction Schools will be in the path of near totality "called the penumbra" for the solar eclipse. Our schools have been busy planning to make this once in a lifetime event a unique learning experience for our students. All students will be allowed to participate in the learning experience but only students with signed permission forms may participate in the outdoor activities. "Eclipse Glasses" will be provided for all of our students. Click here to download the permission slip.
