Central Texas School Districts Cancel Classes for Solar Eclipse Viewing

Several Central Texas school districts have made the decision to cancel classes on April 8 in anticipation of a rare total solar eclipse that will be visible across the region. Marble Falls ISD has described the event as a “once-in-a-lifetime thing for our students,” prompting other districts to follow suit.

In addition to Marble Falls ISD, the following school districts have also canceled classes on April 8: Blanco ISD, Burnet CISD, Cameron ISD, Cherokee ISD, Del Valle ISD, Doss CCSD, Dripping Springs ISD, Fredericksburg ISD, Harper ISD, Hays CISD, Jarrell ISD, Johnson City ISD, Lago Vista ISD, Lake Travis ISD, Lampasas ISD, Liberty Hill ISD, Llano ISD, Lometa ISD, Manor ISD, Mason ISD, San Marcos CISD, San Saba ISD, and Wimberley ISD.

An interactive map is available to show which cities will be in the path of totality and how long the eclipse will last. This unique astronomical event is sparking excitement among students and educators alike, as the next total eclipse visible in the U.S. will not be until August 23, 2044, and will only be visible in Montana and the Dakotas.

For Central Texas residents, April 8 will offer a rare opportunity to witness a total solar eclipse without having to travel far from home. Stay tuned for more updates and information on this exciting event on My MBA Career.
