On Monday, August 21, a total solar eclipse crossed over the United States, spanning all the way from Oregon to South Carolina, according to NASA. At LHS, where a partial solar eclipse was visible , students were given special glasses during their third period so that they could safely view the eclipse.

However, when news came out that some of the solar eclipse glasses had been recalled or were counterfeit, principal’s assistant Sandra Kruckman contacted the company that LHS purchased glasses from to ensure that they were safe to use. The company’s test report gave an observation result of “pass,” meaning the glasses were good to go.

In order to view the eclipse, at 1:15 p.m., during seventh period, students were ushered outside for a fire drill.  While cloud coverage made it more difficult than expected to view, students and staff still attempted to see this natural phenomenon.
