The 4,200 students at the Fair School Service Center will receive protective glasses on Monday to combat the eclipse.

The eclipse will be visible between 2:14 pm and 4:40 pm, and the maximum total eclipse will be around 3:25 pm.

The Iron School Service Center is adjusting elementary school students' schedules due to Monday's solar eclipse. It will also provide goggles to 4,200 students in French-speaking public schools in Port-Cartier, Sept-Ile and Vermont.

Center and school directors made decisions based on the safety of young people who had to leave their primary schools in the middle of the eclipse. They will finally leave school in the early afternoon, so all elementary school students in the area will go home before the sky show. At the secondary level, classes end at 4:25 p.m. The eclipse will end when the students leave.

“Let's enjoy this great event”

Issues of safety, liability, school transportation and childcare services were considered to allow young people to benefit from the scientific experience offered to all of us,” explains Director General of CSS du Fer, Richard Poirier.

School staff communicate safety tips to students. Communications were sent to all parents explaining the logistics of the schedule change on Monday. β€œIt's a great event! You have to use it carefully. We're really happy to find a last-minute supplier to be able to distribute glasses to all our students,” says Richard Poirier.

FAIR Schools Service Center management discussed the changes being made with those responsible for English-speaking and Indigenous schools on its territory. It also consulted with other centers in the region. Most schools on the North Shore remain open Monday. Some facilities use an adapted schedule to handle the solar eclipse and the reality of returning home.
