Due to the upcoming total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, all Westbrook Schools will dismiss students one hour early that day. The eclipse will be at its peak at about 3:30pm which is when our youngest children are dismissed. We want to ensure their safety. We will follow our typical Early Release schedule where students are dismissed one hour before the usual time, just as we do on Wednesdays. The LEARNS after-school program at the Community Center will open early that day and most after-school or evening activities will go on as scheduled, including school-family conferences at Saccarappa. A special thank you to our PTOs and other funds for providing special glasses to view the eclipse safely.
