On August 21, 2017--the first day of school--a total solar eclipse will sweep across the United States. The fully eclipsed sun will be visible along a 70-mile-wide “path of totality” arching from Oregon to South Carolina. People not in the path (including in our area) will experience a partial eclipse. The Otis PTA has purchased approved viewing glasses--necessary for viewing the eclipse safely--for all students, teachers, and staff. Teachers interested in participating in the school's viewing event with their classes will also be given supplemental materials from Otis' brand new STEAM lab. 


Cal Academy of Sciences offers suggested activities for viewers who wish to observe wildlife as scientists during the eclipse. 


Lawrence Hall of Science offers a show in its planetarium about the upcoming eclipse, and will host a talk by the author of "When the Sun Goes Dark."


Special, guided viewing day events will also be held at Chabot Science Center and the Exploratorium

Safety for Pets During the Eclipse


Many thanks to all members of Otis PTA for purchasing the glasses and for supporting the new STEAM lab! Your PTA dollars and support enrich our kids' learning every day--including on ECLIPSE DAY!
