Eclipse Early Dismissal April 8th, 2024

The big day is here!

Parents and Guardians

This is a reminder that Esgenoopetitj School students will have an early dismissal on Monday, April 8th. If you have a child in K4 to Grade 5 to you may pick them up anytime after 12:00 noon as they will be having lunch at the school. The bus will be departing the school at 12:30 with ALL remaining bus students

In fact, it’s a very rare and historical event that is taking place April 8th over North America – a total solar eclipse. We have not experienced one of those here in New Brunswick since the year 932!

What does this mean? As the Moon aligns perfectly between Earth and the Sun, temporary darkness will sweep across parts of the country, and our region in New Brunswick will be right in the path. The whole Miramichi area will fall into the solar eclipse path of totality!

This is to allow students to safely arrive at their after-school destinations before the eclipse begins.

All students will have received eclipse viewing glasses before being dismissed.
