Eclipse Information CCS SEAL


Chickamauga City Schools will be following a half day schedule Monday, August 21, in an effort to ensure the safety and well-being of students.  While we have enjoyed activities and studying about the eclipse, we will dismiss students early so they can safely travel home before the eclipse begins.  The peak of the eclipse, when we will have 98% darkness, is during the regular dismissal time.  We want to avoid exposing students to driving at that time.  We have provided safety information about watching the eclipse, and stressed that looking at the eclipse without protective eye gear can cause permanent damage to the eyes.  Additionally, regular sunglasses will not protect your eyes from the danger of the eclipse.  This is a once in a lifetime event, but we strongly advise watching it on television rather than taking a chance on damaging your vision for a lifetime.


School for students will begin Wed., August 9. Construction is ongoing at Gordon Lee High School. Students will be unable to park in the horseshoe drive until sometime in September. The construction will also affect students who walk to CES and GLMS through the alley between GLHS and the Gordon Lee Mansion. We are encouraging CAR-POOLING for student drivers whenever possible, and we ask the community to be keenly aware that many children will be walking from different areas to school each morning. We will have staff members supervising, and also assistance from the Chickamauga City Police Department, but EXTREME CAUTION is warranted.

Below is a detailed plan for student parking, parent drop-off and pick-up, and student walkers. This plan may be tweaked if needed, but any updates will be posted immediately. Please click "Read More" to view entire message.
