Reminder: With the rare total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024, casting parts of Ohio into temporary darkness, Westfall Local School District is proactively adjusting its academic calendar for the safety of its students and staff. As the eclipse coincides with many schools' dismissal times, we understand the potential traffic concerns. Following guidance and consultation with local law enforcement agencies, Westfall Local Schools has decided to cancel school for students and staff on Monday, April 8, 2024, to ensure everyone's safety during this unique celestial event. We understand this schedule change may impact families' plans for the day. However, our top priority is always the safety and well-being of our students and staff. For more information about the Total Solar Eclipse, including how to view it safely, please visit https://science.nasa.gov/eclipses/future-eclipses/eclipse-2024/.
