APS to use solar eclipse as learning opportunity


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque Public Schools is using the solar eclipse as a learning opportunity, but your kids will have to bring their own eye protection.

Students will be required to have glasses or a pinhole camera in order to be allowed outside during the eclipse.

Parents of Native American students can opt their children out of the eclipse viewing if they choose. One of the ways Native Americans respect the eclipse is not by viewing it, but instead staying inside and sitting quietly without eating or drinking until the eclipse passes.

All you need to do is notify your child’s teacher.
