In South Florida the solar eclipse will start around 1:30 p.m. Monday and reach its peak around 3 p.m

The eclipse is expected to start in Sacramento at 9:02 a.m., reach its peak at 10:17 a.m. and end at 11:39 a.m.

In general terms, in Southwest Florida we'll see 78-80% of the sun covered up if you look between 2:52pm and 2:54pm Monday.

The school district says that while the schools will be closed, the school district will remain open.

In Greenup County, Kentucky, school officials concerned about the eclipse occurring during the window of student dismissal and transportation home chose to cancel classes on Monday, according to a news release. Looking at the sun while it's partially eclipsed could do lasting damage to their eyes.

All schools are only hoping the weather will cooperate and it won't be too cloudy.

Friday's lesson plan at Barrington Elementary School in Upper Arlington was a bit different than usual. "The authentic educational opportunity this provides is priceless".

"Line Mountain received a $10,000 Federal Academic Enrichment Grant and used $1,500 for the glasses to support the science activities we are doing for the solar eclipse event", Dunn said.

Older children will be in class during the eclipse.

"I don't think anyone wants to live with that", she said.

"We wanted to ensure we weren't putting kids potentially in harm's way, no matter grade level or within a smaller level", Alaniz said. Teachers are required to show children how to properly wear eclipse glasses before giving them out. Those without glasses will be staying in. "They've been asking if it's today, every day, all week".
