At Jefferson Middle School, we are preparing for a very exciting event on the first day of school, Monday, August 21st. Students will not be going outside to view the eclipse. Instead, we will discuss the science behind the eclipse in many of your student's classes and will broadcast televised and/or online coverage from Jefferson's TV studio. 

We will not have outdoor lunch recess nor have students outside for PE during this time.

Here are two resources for viewing information:

If you have any questions or concerns, please call the school office at (217) 585-5810.
