All of the schools in the Danville Independent School District got the opportunity to watch the partial solar eclipse on Monday, April 8. Students received eclipse glasses, and teachers instructed them about how to have a safe viewing experience. Some classes also had lessons about the science behind solar eclipses, so students better understood what they were watching.
