Solar Eclipse
Sturgis, MI will have a partial solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024. The partial solar eclipse will start at 1:54pm, peak at 3:10pm (97.4% magnitude), and end at 4:24pm. We have purchased solar eclipse glasses for all staff and students that meet the transmittance requirements of ISO 12312-2:2015. These will be distributed to students on April 8th.  We ask for your support in helping us stress to our youth that they should never view the sun without eclipse glasses, because it may cause permanent eye injury.
